i want to launch a "composition" of test from CMD , if l launch only one test it works . I use this command to launch one test :
Start-Process -FilePath "$TestCompletePath" -ArgumentList "$ProjectPath /r /p:bSolid_DEV /t:KeywordTests|Test1";
I want to run multiple tests in the same instance of TestComplete for this reason i can't do a cycle where for each iteration i launch a test in another instance of TestComplete.
Do you have any ideas to resolve this problem ?
Create a single Keyword test that calls the other tests that you want and then call that via command line.
This is a good idea but how can I create a KeywordTest and call the other tests from an external script ?
I'm not sure I understand the question. You already demonstrated you know how to call a keyword test via commandline externally.
The tests i want to launch are every time different i can't create a "static KeywordTest" and than call it from an external script . Is there a way to launchmultiple tests from cmd ?
Not within the same session without writing some sort of code to make the distinction.
Here's another potential solution:
1) Create a CSV file that lists out the test names that you want to execute
2) Create code in a script that uses the DDT.CSVDriver to read that CSV file and drive a loop through it
3) Each time through the loop, call the keyword indicated by the particular row in the CSV file.
4) Set your command line to execute that script code
Then, all you need to do to change the list of tests to execute is update the CSV file with the desired list.
I think a solution like this, i write in a XML the test and the within a for loop i run all the tests .
Now i have a new problem :
This is my code :
XmlFile = BuiltIn.ParamStr(6)
Log.Message("Tests failed : " + XmlFile)
Log.message("Xml file exists")
Log.message("Xml file doesn't exists")
Test_List = ParseXMLFile(XmlFile)
for test in Test_List:
Test_List = 
root = ET.parse(XmlFile).getroot()
for test in root.findall('Tests/Test'):
TestName = test.get('ProjectTestItem')
#add the test to the list
To run a keywordTest I should use this call : KeywordTest.TestName.Run() , the testname is contained in a variable how can i "take"the testname contained in the variable?
You're writing in Python...so I'm not sure a lot about it.
So, you could replace the KeywordTest name with the identifier you pull out of your XML. I don't believe that is available in Python.
So, instead, you might need to do something like this
testToRun = eval('KeywordTest.' + testName)
I solved this problem in this way .
for test in Test_List:
strFunctionCall = aqString.Format("KeywordTests.%s.Run()",test)
Log.Message("Test : " + test + "has positive result")
Log.Message("Test : " + test + "has negative result")
if a test failed the script doesn't go to the next iteration .. at the moment i haven't a solution, do you have any ideas?
You're throwing an exception which probably throws an error into the log. You probably have "stop on error" turned on which is halting the project upon logging an error.
