Hi,

I wonder if its possible to mix (in a manual test for example) a manuel
test method with an "automated" test method.
For example, tester starts with creating a manual test and later want to
replace a manual step with an automated step.
It seems that it's currently impossible since you can only a manual test
method to a manual test behaviour. But it is possible to create (develop)
a test method that can be included in a manual test that would be
automated ??? (it's kinda strange to talk about automated test method in a
manual test suite, but it could be really handy to have such a mechanism)

Thanks for any response about this !

Regards
BQ.

Hi Bertrand,

Ironically, I just opened a feature for this function since there are
various use cases for mixing the various TPTP test types. Please see
defect:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=123277

Feel free to add any requirements that you may have to this defect.

Hi Paul,

This would be a great thing to create a "super" generic test type in
order to allow test type mixing. However, i guess that doing such may take
a while considering it's, more than a technical feature, an architecural
feature. As I want to use TPTP as a core framework in my tool, i'll have
to write an architectural specification in order to "extend" TPTP and i'd
like to write this specification in accordance to TPTP design.
Have you any idea of when this feature will be available since it
involves design constraints ?

Thanks

PS: This TPTP framework is the best tool i've seen so far (like all
eclipse.org.* tools in general), well done guys !

Hi Bertrand,
Firstly, thank you for your kind comments and enthusiasm on the project.

Unfortunately, this feature was too late to make it into the TPTP V4.2.0
plan
( http://www.eclipse.org/tptp/home/project_info/featureplans/d raftplan.php?so
urce=All&project=All&release=4.2&file=TPTPFeatur es_4.2.xml). That said, it
will be considered it for the TPTP V4.3.0 plan but all features cannot be
guaranteed for a particular release until they are put in plan (e.g. passing
planning, resource and architectural reviews). As always, please feel free
to contribute (requirements, design and/or resources) for this feature.

Paul
