NAME ^

Integrator::Test::ConfigData - Configuration information transfered in the TAP output

VERSION ^

$Revision: 1.11 $

SYNOPSIS ^

This module provides test functions to automate measurement and state information gathering from a test script to the TAP output with the intent of loading the information in the Integrator tool from Cydone Solutions. These functions are mostly wrappers around ok functions. See Test::Simple on www.cpan.org as a reference. If you need more information for the TAP format see Test::TAP::Model on www.cpan.org.

Each of these functions is considered a single test statement and must be counted in your test plan. This module is a sub-class of Test::Builder.

    #... your typical test.t file ...
    #!/usr/bin/perl
    
    use Test::More tests => 3;                  #you declare your tests as usual
    use Integrator::Test::ConfigData;           #you add this to have access this module's functions

    # a test to produce a measurement in the TAP output.
    my $fan_speed = function_that_returns_some_fan_speed();
    measure( 'fan speed on FAN1', 'FAN_TACH1', $fan_speed, 'RPM', 0.1, 'TACH_123' );

    # a test to declare a component state in the TAP output.
    component( 'locking a blade in place', 'CPU_BLADE', 'SN0010023', 'HANDLE', 'LOCKED' );

    # a test to store a config file in the TAP output.
    config_file( 'last night temperature log', '/var/log/heat.log.00');

    # a test to store config data in the TAP output.
    my $string = 'SERIAL_NUMER=1234;18Sept1970';
    config_data( 'last night temperature log', 'serial_number_and_date', $string);

FUNCTIONS ^

measure

This function is used to generate integrator_measurement tags in the TAP output. In turn, this data will be interpreted by Cydone Integrator as a measurement. The arguments to the function are:

 measurement ( COMMENT, MEASURMENT_NAME, VALUE, UNIT, TOLERANCE, EQUIPMENT );

Where COMMENT, MEASURMENT_NAME and VALUE are required. Fields are evaluated as SCALARs.

If fields are empty, the corresponding values in the test results will be blank, which is valid but not a good practice since the measurement is not traceable.

component

This function is used to generate integrator_component tags in the TAP output. In turn, this data will be interpreted by Cydone Integrator as a component and state declaration. The arguments to the function are:

 component ( COMMENT, COMPONENT_NAME, COMPONENT_SERIAL_NUMBER,STATE_NAME, STATE_VALUE );

Where COMMENT and COMPONENT_NAME are required. Fields are evaluated as SCALARs

If fields are empty, the corresponding values in the test results will be blank, which is valid but not a good practice since the declaration is not complete.

config_data

This function is used to attach text data from a string in the TAP output. The string will be encoded and the data will be interpreted by Cydone Integrator as a log file with a name coresponding to the NAME parameter for the current test case. The arguments to the function are:

 config_data ( COMMENT, NAME, STRING );

Notes: No string size limit is specified in this version. Use with care...

config_file

This function is used to attach a file in the TAP output. The file will be encoded and the data will be interpreted by Cydone Integrator as a log file for the current test case. The arguments to the function are:

 config_file ( COMMENT, FILE_NAME );

Notes: No file size limit is specified in this version. Use with care...

Other Note: If you must specify a file in a different directory, beware that your test might not be portable because different path specifier conventions (forward slashes versus backslashes).
