Nested testsuites [message #80050] Tue, 08 August 2006 08:12 Go to next message

Greetings!

Is it possible to nest testsuites in one way or another? The reason this
is desirable is the fact that developers may not need to run all tests every
time, they might just need to run a subset of them. The ability to nest testsuites
within one another would simplify this greatly.

Is there a way? Maybe doing something clever with deployments and artifacts?

Thanks!

Helllo,

I have found that you can create a testsuite, containing the tests discribed
in other testsuites.
In your example this would mean if you have test A,B,C with testcases
A1,A2,A3 ,B1,B2.... C3
You can create a test D with the behavior of invocations A1,B2,B3,C1

But testsuite D has to be of the same test type as A,B,C

If you find a way to mix test types that would be great, i am still trying
to do that.

Hi Henrik,
As Bjorn has mentioned, the behavior of a test can reference test cases
from the same test suite as well as reference other test suites or
individual test cases within other test suites, assuming they are all of the
same type. For example:

http://help.eclipse.org/help32/topic/org.eclipse.hyades.test .doc.user/tasks/tediting_manual_test.htm

Unfortunately, you cannot reference a test case/suite of a different
type. This is covered under enhancement
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=123277. Please feel free to
contribute/comment/vote on this enhancement.
