How to use eValid to support regression testing.

Setup times for eValid to start, halt and repeat tests

Postby GordonC » Thu Mar 05, 2020 11:30 am

Hi.

I would like to setup some set times for a test.

For example, I will kick off a web-based test that I want it to run for 3 hours, then stop, take an 1 hour break and then restart.

How do I specify eValid to do that?

Thanks

Thanks for posting GordonC.

The main thing to remember is that you're working with the command line interface for this kind of thing:

http://e-valid.com/Products/Documentati ... rface.html

So, you simply program (in your PowerShell script) something like this:

while inside the 3-hour limit
eValid (switches)
end while
sleep 3600 seconds
...
repeat...

Yes, you can do this in one script as well, but this ties up that browser instance totally for the entire length of the test.

It is probably better to stick with command line interactions.
