Which adapters can be used for the "Run a test suite in test script mode" option in RQM?

Dawn McMannama (515) | asked Jan 25 '17, 6:31 p.m.

 Is the feature "Run a test suite in test script mode" in RQM only available with the Selenium adapter?  Does it work with the Command Line Adapter?

Hi Dawn,

The short answer to your question is "No, it does not work with Command Line Adapter as it is." A little detailed response why it is so is given below. 

The Junit based Selenium Tests can have single Junit script but multiple test cases where we can automatically extract the test case names from the Junit script. So a sample implementation for Selenium Adapter was done which extract the test case names from the Junit Script and maps them with test cases names created under RQM Test Suite. This implementation was to be used as Sample Implementation to let other adapter owners know how this can be done using new capabilities provided with RQM server. 

One of the important purpose of this feature was to upload the results of user's tests getting uploaded in to Test Suite as test case results which may or may not be run using the RQM Adapters. 

Now as far as command line Adapter is concerned, do you have multiple test cases in your command line script? If yes, then do you have a well defined boundary to separate one test case from another one in your script? The challenge with command line adapter is that two users may not have common rules regarding test case boundary in a command line based script. Hence it is expected that users would develop their custom adapters ( connecting to RQM server ) to make use of this functionality which could facilitate running all the test cases from your command line scripts under purview of a single RQM Test Suite. 

Please let me know if you still have some more question regarding this.
