How best to organize my tests

Postby KElliot » Fri Apr 29, 2016 8:59 am

Morning.

What is the best way to organize my suite of tests?

I want to avoid having to restart my tests all the time.

Thanks

Thanks for posting your question KElliot.

This question concerns the detailed setup and use of eV.Managher, described here:

http://www.e-valid.com/Products/Documen ... mmary.html

How you manage your test suite is a function of what your needs are, and there are no set rules for this.

Our best recommendation based on our experience is the following structure:

(1) Organize tests into groups of groups of tests.

eV.Manager is set up this way.

(2) Put about 10 tests in each group.

Thus 10 * 10 * 10 = 1000 tests into on suite of tests.

(3) Test each group individually, then each group of groups.

(4) Aim for all tests to be done in less than 1 hour.

This is so you don't have to wait around too long.

Our goal has been, when you run the entire suite, to only break one group at a time.

That way, if you DO have FAILs then you can isolate quickly where the FAILs happen.
