Hi Rony,

None of the apps underneath testapp* are "tests", but are rather 
auxiliary applications that are run as apps in a separate process by a 
test. The test itself must be somewhere under tests/system/src/test/java.

For example, the test class ModuleLauncherTest is in 
tests/system/src/test/java/test/launchertest. You probably need to do 
something similar.
