What test management and/or test automation system(s) are you using to run the tests?

Generally, all we can really say is "yes, it's possible", but not a lot more without knowing what you're doing.

These are java applications which is running from eclipse as standalone applications.

i want to execute all them from JIRA as a SUITE and store the result output as a test artifact.

You'll need to do some coding - you need a post-function that can execute the external programs and import the results.

I'd look at the script runner to get started with.

However, I'd also recommend a look at external build and test management tools which are far better suited to running repeated tests and reporting on them. Having a single Jira issue rapidly becomes quite inflexible and uninformative.

Take an example - "I found a bug in application X on my 'phone". That's a Jira issue. The writers of the application write a test case to cover fixing it (where do you keep that case?). The developers do a bit of hacking and say they've fixed it, so you do a test run. It fails, so you re-develop and fix it again, and re-run the test. Then you realise the test plan was missing something, so you add it and re-run the test. Then google update the OS and it might affect the bug, so you re-run the test as a regression test. You can see that a simple test on one bug has many runs, against different versions and even the test can change.

Also if you are saying yes what kind of applicaiton we can run from JIRA. Where i can found the document for that ?
