Re: [QF-Test] Data Driver question

Hi Chuck,

actually the data-driver concept is intended to run one test-case with several test-data sets (which could come from different sources like in your first query).

If you want to have once test-case with one data file your structure should look like this:

	Test-Set - Representing TC 1
		Data driver
			Data table or excel file etc.
	Test-Set - Representing TC 2
		Data driver
			Data table or excel file etc.

There is one way to run steps within a Test-Case getting data from a data-table using a Test node.
This could look like this:

	Test Set
		Test Case
				Data driver
					Data table or excel file etc.

Best Regards,

OK.  What if each Test Case has its own data file?

Hi Ivan, Chuck,

that's indeed a good way to achieve what Chuck asked. I'd just like to
add that you can shorten this to

--TestSet 1
----Data driver 1
------Data table for outer loop
------Data table for inner loop
----Test case A
----Test case B

i.e you can have more than one level of iteration in a single data driver.

Best regards,

------Test case A
------Test case B

-> TestSet1 contains TestSet2 which contains TestCases

Both Test A and B will be run using data from both drivers.
If driver 1 has 2 rows and driver 2 has 3 rows then there will be 6
iterations. IE: each possible combination Will be run

    Is it possible to have 2 data drivers?  One with 5 rows for 5
    iterations and one with 1 row that will be re-used each of the 5
