SERVICE_TYPE

Ada Test Script Language

Purpose

The SERVICE_TYPE statement indicates the type of service tested.

Syntax

SERVICE_TYPE <type> {,<type>}

where:

  1. <type> is a user-defined service type identifier

Description

The SERVICE_TYPE instruction allows you to specify an identifier indicating the type of service tested. This identifier is included in the test report.

You can use this functionality to specify whether a service is internal or external.

If SERVICE_TYPE is placed within a SERVICE ... END SERVICE block, it indicates the type of the current SERVICE block.

If the SERVICE_TYPE statement is placed outside a SERVICE block, then it indicates the default service type for all SERVICE blocks that do not contain a SERVICE_TYPE statement.

Example

SERVICE_TYPE internal, external

SERVICE count

  SERVICE_TYPE internal

  ...

END SERVICE
