Typically you will do some initialization like loading packages before the actual Test[]s. I don't see why you would have problems to import your data there or even within a Test-Definition. Are you encountering problems when doing so? > I should add that I want to use the built in .mt file in Wolfram > Workbench. The Mathematica front end is not used.

If you start the tests from Workbench there is by default no FrontEnd started and at least some of the functionality needs it, although I'm not sure whether the HDF Import will need it. But if that is your problem you probably only need to wrap the Import with an UseFrontEnd to get things running. I think you probably will need to provide more details if you want to get more specific suggestions... hth, albert
