Open Test Framework  
Player Project

With a player project an OTX based tester for quick and easy distribution of executable OTX sequences can be created without any programming knowledge. A player project can be executed inside the Open Test Player or together with the to OTX Runtime API.

A player project refers to one or more Procedure Projects or PTX files. A player project can contain pre-configured OTX Procedure Calls, see OtxProcedureCall Editor which can be structured for execution inside the Control Sequence Designer.

Inside the Player Monitor Editor the Procedure Calls can be bound to a graphical user interface (GUI), executable inside Open Test Player.
