NAME ^

Test::Presenter - A module for results Presentation.

SYNOPSIS ^

    my $report = new Test::Presenter;
    
    $report->close();
    $report->output()
    $report->dump();
    $report->set_debug(0);
    my $dbg = $report->get_debug();

DESCRIPTION ^

Test::Presenter is is used to create the initial Test::Presenter object for use in processing various test results. Test::Presenter operates around the DBXml database from Sleepycat Software. DBXml was used due to it's support for both XQuery and XPath, as well as it's ease of use and implementation with Perl.

Test::Presenter receives as input a TRPI-formatted XML file. These files can be generated with Test::Parser, or any other tool that supports the TRPI format as output. The TRPI format was chosen because it is robust enough to handle results from many different kinds of tests. This wide usability comes with a drawback, however, in that TRPI files can sometimes become overly large.

TRPI files are really used as an intermediate data format between raw test results and an intelligible easy to read set of test results. This set of test results can be fed into various tools for final presentation and further human analysis.
