Almost all of our tests expect JUnit executor of some kind as
an entry point. The default execution is done via some
maven magic under bigtop-tests/test-execution. A good
example for you would be:

Now, that said, any kind of JUnit executor would do.

The only caveat is that our tests expect certain sysprops/env variables
to be set in order to function properly -- Maven entry
point under bigtop-tests/test-execution/smokes does that
automatically, but if you don't use maven you would have
to do it yourself.
