About Continuum for JUnit 

Access Continuum for Java (JUnit) provides developers who are familiar with JUnit with an easy and painless way to embed automated accessibility testing for their applications written in Java.

Continuum for JUnit includes:

  • Access Engine, which is Level Access' testing engine, specifically the automatic tests included with this accessibility testing engine
  • A sample project that includes two tests using JUnit

To run tests, use 'mvn test.'

In order to help you better understand how Continuum for Java (JUnit) works, we include a sample project which tests and using JUnit. With these two examples, you can see how the testing results are like both when the tested application is accessible and not accessible 

To test your own application, find the file for the sample project, named "continuum-pro-java-junit/src/test/java/" 

Simply replace "" and "" in this file (continuum-pro-java-junit/src/test/java/ with the URL of your application. Then run the test using "mvn test" in your IDE. 

Test results will display the list of accessibility errors, along with details to guide remediation efforts. See "Access Continuum Test Results" for more details.
