Running a test suite

Test suites enable you to run multiple test harnesses in a single step.

About this task

In the test suite, each test harness is associated with a test configuration (a TDP with associated configuration settings) and can be run a second time with another test configuration to provide comparison results. This can be useful for validation purposes.


To run a test campaign:

  1. In the project explorer, open the Test Suite folder and double-click the test suite to open the test suite editor.
  2. In the test suite editor, click Run.


After running the test suite, in the project explorer, the Test Result folder contains the test results for each test harness contained in the test suite. You can merge multiple selected test results into one file containing the results of all the test harnesses of the test suite, see Merging test suite results.
Note: In some environments, if you have installed the product in an existing Eclipse, the test result timestamps and verdicts are not properly displayed in the package explorer. To correct this, in the project explorer, click View Menu > Customize View > Content and ensure that only Working Sets, HCL OneTest™ Embedded Elements, CDT Elements, and Resources are selected.
