MicroTESK is a set of Java-based utilities that are run from the command line. It can be used on *_Windows, Linux and OS X_* machines that have *_JDK 1.6 or later_* installed. To build MicroTESK from source code or to build generated Java models, *_Apache Ant version 1.8_ or later* is required. To generate test data based on constraints, MicroTESK needs *_Microsoft Research Z3_* that can work under the corresponding operating system.
