Customising parallel runs
Hi Team ,
We are trying to figure out a way to run our test cases in a customised parallel fashion .
To start with , we are using readyAPI paid version 3.2.5.
Our Project structure is
1.1 TestSuite1_Positive > 100 cases
1.2 TestSuite1_Negative > 20 cases
2.1 TestSuite2_Positive. > 50 cases
2.2 TestSuite2_Negative > 30 cases
3.1 TestSuite3_Positive > 50 cases
4.1 TestSuite4_positive. > 10 cases
test Suite 2 is dependent on TestSuite1 and it should run only after TestSuite1 is completed.
TestSuite 4 is dependent on TestSuite3 and it should run only after TestSuite3 is completed
TestSuite1 and TestSuite3 are independent and can run in parallel and TestSuite2 and TestSuite4 can run in parallel.
What we are trying to achieve here to once we start our run , TestSuite1 and TestSuite3 should run in parallel.
Once TestSuite1 complete its run TestSuite2 should start , similar for TestSuite3 and TestSuite4.
Kindly help .
- 1. the suggestion was based on the information provided in the question.
2. thumb rule is to have each and every test case is independent, here you have dependency between suites.
Can you revisit the suites and see if you can make them independent (no dependency between them)?
By the way, if you use the commandline testrunner script to execute the project, then you have the flexibility to run particular test suite (you can also check if that option allows to run two suites if you can;t remove dependency) and use multiple command line terminals or write a batch script to invoke each suite in the background process. This way you can achieve parallel running of suites without splitting the project as well.
