Run Test Scripts in Parallel or Sequentially

Leesen Padayachee (9958120) | asked Mar 26 '15, 3:52 a.m.

If you have one test case and multiple test scripts linked to it, can you run this test case and have all the associated test scripts run also (either in parallel or sequentially). At the moment it seems like only 1 test script can be run at a time when running the test case.

It depends on how the test is going to be run. For example, if a testcase has script1 and script2 and owner is tester1 and tester2. An admin can start the test case to run script1 and then start test case again to run script2. Then the tester1 and tester2 can go to execution console to execute the script1 and script2 at the same time. Off course if there are TCERs created beforehand for each test script and testcase, starting TCER respectively may achieve the similar thing.

Hi Don

I am still abit confused about " Then the tester1 and tester2 can go to execution console to execute the script1 and script2 at the same time". How will this be run together? and how will this be shown as 1 result? It looks like only 1 TCER can be run at a time?

it is aimed to run on different clients(each tester should run their own test)at the same time. I don't really understand the use case of updating the result to the same TCER as it does not make sense that you have different scenarios which would update the results to the same TCER at the same time. If there are multiple scripts in a testcase, it usually represents the different aspects of the same test case, and from management point of view, it is reasonable to use different TCER to manage the results for different aspects of the tests even though they are belonging to the same test case.
