I suggest you take a look. There is a lot of work and it is Python based 
with a class structure and a clean interface. It is designed to run from 
a command line or integrated with other Python code that imports it.

The tester has an MI interface to control GDB plus it manages and 
handles the serial console output from real targets and piped output 
from simulators. It supports running tests in parallel, something that 
makes testing on simulators important.

The tester has been available in rtems-tools.git for over a year now. :)

It will be installed when rtems-tools.git is built and installed as part 
of an RSB tools build.
