Test Case display

Note: This discussion refers to the subtabs that are present under a named test case tab. (It does not apply to the Test Cases subtab which appears under a named test module tab.) You can access a named test case tab by expanding a test module node in the explorer tree, then double-clicking one of the test case subnodes, if any.
A test case is displayed in TestArchitect Client with the following subtabs:
  • Steps: A step-by-step guide to the test case's execution plan.
  • Information: Information fields for the test case.
  • Test Objectives: List of test objectives addressed by the selected test case.
  • Related bugs: List of the marked known bugs contained in the test case (See TestArchitect bugs).

Test Objective display

Note: This discussion refers to the subtabs that are present under a named test case tab. (It does not apply to the Test Cases subtab which appears under a named test module tab.) You can access a named test case tab by expanding a test module node in the explorer tree, then double-clicking one of the test case subnodes, if any.
A test case is displayed in TestArchitect Client with the following subtabs:
  • Steps: A step-by-step guide to the test case's execution plan.
  • Information: Information fields for the test case.
  • Test Objectives: List of test objectives addressed by the selected test case.
  • Related bugs: List of the marked known bugs contained in the test case (See TestArchitect bugs).

Data Set display

A data set is displayed in TestArchitect Client with two subtabs:
  • Data Lines: Worksheet-style test editor for developing and editing the data set.
  • Information: Information fields for the data set.

Action Definition display

A user-defined action is displayed in TestArchitect Client with two subtabs:
  • Editor: Worksheet-style test editor for authoring and editing action lines.
  • Information: Information fields and argument definitions for the action.

Interface display

An interface is displayed in TestArchitect Client with two subtabs:
  • Interface Entities: List of interface entities defined for the interface.
  • Information: Information fields for the interface.

An interface entity is displayed in TestArchitect Client with two subtabs:
  • Interface Lines: Worksheet-style editor for viewing and modifying contents of the interface entity.
  • Information: Information fields for the interface entity.

Interface Element display

Note: Direct editing of interface elements is generally performed in the Interface Lines tab of the parent interface entity. Initial generation of interface elements is generally performed with the Interface Viewer or Identify tool.
An interface element is displayed in TestArchitect Client with a single screen (no tabs) containing both information fields and the element definition fields.
Tip: This screen displays only the first property field for the interface element. If the element's definition involves more than a single property-value pair, the additional pairs must be accessed in the Interface Lines tab of the parent interface entity.

Test Suite display

A test suite is displayed in TestArchitect Client with two subtabs:
  • Test Modules: List of test modules comprising the test suite.
  • Information: Information fields for the test suite, and (in the case of dynamic test suites), the data profile defining the test suite's constituent test modules.

Bug display

A bug is displayed in TestArchitect Client with two subtabs:
  • Information: Information fields concerning the bug.
  • Related Items: List of test modules that expose the bug.

Picture check display

A picture check is displayed in TestArchitect Client with a single screen (no tabs), containing information fields.

Result display

A test result is displayed in TestArchitect Client with two or three subtabs:
  • Summary: Basic information (time, location, operator) about the test run, a summary of test results by test case, and a list of failures, errors and warnings.
  • Result Details: A log of action line-by-action line execution results.
  • Information (repository-based results only): More detailed information fields on the test run.
