How can I run the Test Compatibility Kit (TCK)

  • The configuration file for the TCK runner, ts.jte.

  • A file that contains the excluded tests that cannot pass with this client, ts.jtx

  • Scripts to run Apache Pulsar 2.7.1, configure the Transaction Coordinator, and prepare for the execution of the TCK.

To build the package, run unit tests, and run the TCK:
