[QF-Test] Serialization of Dependencies


  • Subject: [QF-Test] Serialization of Dependencies
  • From: "Michaelis, Mark" <mark.michaelis@?.com>

Hello,

 

I would like to ask you what you would suggest for the following problem concerning dependency linearization:

 

If I got the algorithm in QF-Test right dependencies are linearized in that way that independent dependencies are called in any "non-predictable" order. If I got this idea right I have a problem:

 

I have the following dependencies:

 

·         Application Started
Ensures that the application is started and ready for test. This is the node called most often.

·         Application Stopped
This dependency shall ensure that the application is stopped. Example would be to change some configuration files etc.

·         Application Restarted
Now I have tests where I need to ensure that the application is restarted from scratch. At least this is the current solution I have in mind. To do so I have to ensure the application is stopped and then started again. This can of course be done moving the stopped/started preparation nodes to procedures I will call. But the solution I think of would be:

o    Dependency: Application Restarted

§  Sequence

·         Depend on Application Stopped

·         Depend on Application Started

 

I. e. I would like to allow the Sequence Node as direct element below the Dependency node with the effect that Application Stopped dependency is ensured to be put in front of Application Started during linearization.

 

What do you think? Does this make sense? Is it worth a feature request? Or do I treat the dependencies wrong?

 

Any hints welcome.

 

Kind Regards

*** Mark
