A new test is a bad idea.
But that doesn’t mean that it can’t be used to test how a test is performing.
In this article, I will discuss the test preparation and testing aspects of the test, and the benefits and drawbacks of the tests, and how we can improve the performance of our tests.
I will also discuss the tests themselves, and whether or not we can get a significant performance benefit from them.
Finally, I discuss the pros and cons of the different tests, how they compare, and where we might be looking for improvement.
Test Preparation The first thing we need to do is prepare ourselves to perform the test.
In order to perform a test, we need a few things: the test set up, a test suite, and a test configuration file.
The setup file is the first thing that we will need, since it provides the configuration for the test (and it’s the only one that you need to make sure everything is set up correctly before you take the test).
The test configuration files are usually located in the test suite directory, which we will name Test.cfg, or Test.ini in some other way.
We will discuss this in more detail in the next section, but in brief: a test consists of a series of tests, called steps, each of which must pass the test and each must be tested in a certain order (typically order A is to order B, order C is to take order D, etc.).
The tests in a test set are executed in sequence.
The test suite is used to organize the tests and to build the test results.
It is a collection of tests that are run in a sequence, so that they all pass, and each step is followed by the next step.
If the test runs, it can create an executable that can be executed by any program, as long as it is a valid program, and it can be compiled with a standard compiler (if it is compiled with the right compiler, it will be run with a default test suite).
The configuration file is where all the information about the test is stored, so it’s essential that it is easy to edit.
We’ll discuss editing the test configuration in detail in Part 2 of this series.
I found the configuration file a bit confusing, so I’m going to try to simplify it by describing it in a simple way: all of the variables in the configuration are in the form [Test name] , where [Test] is a string or number.
These variables are all named Test .
If the Test is set to something other than Test, it’s a variable named TestName .
(Note: this is how the test names are specified in the Test.xml file; this is a common practice for tests.)
A TestName is a constant that is used for each test in the suite.
The values of the TestName are relative to the Test .
When we run the test file, the Test names are printed to the screen.
When we open a new test file (for example, by clicking on a test’s name), the TestNames printed to our screen are replaced by the values printed in the text of the new test.
We can also use this variable to indicate that we’ve run a test.
If we have a TestName that contains a colon (:), we have run a Test.
In other words, we have “run a test”.
If the string TestName contains a dollar sign (dollar), then the Test has been run with the specified test set.
(Note that we cannot use a colon as a Test name, since that would imply that the Test was run in order, which it wasn’t.)
The Test is not a special test that is run with all the other tests in the testset.
A test is only run once per test suite.
In particular, the test run with an empty TestName will fail, because the test has not been run at all.
(In this case, the file name of the failed test is Test.fail.txt .)
The Test configuration file contains the following configuration variables: TestName: The name of a test to run.
A name that’s unique for each Test in the testing suite.
TestType: The test type.
Possible values are: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H. Dependency: The dependencies for the tests in each test suite to run, as well as for any other tests that depend on the same dependencies.
The Test type specifies which tests should be run on the tests specified in TestName, and which tests are not.
Executable: The program that will run the Test if it’s run with test-suite (i.e., the Test that is running in Test.run ).
ScheduledTest: The date that we are scheduled to run the tests (this is also used in TestSetFile).
ExecutionScheduler: The execution scheduler
