Iteration table

Tmar tests are based on iterations.
Basically an iteration is a group of values and expected results for a test case.
The simplest way to define iterations is to use a sequence table where each line of the sequence table is an iteration.
Example :
Sequence table syntax :
  • A sequence table is introduce by the /sequence statement
  • following by a table header with column names, used as fields name for each iteration
    • Column header start with a '[' and each column are separate by a '|'
    • When a column name is followed by a '?' Tmar will compare the value of this column value with the value returned by the test 
      • ​Note : If there is no value in the column, Tmar will display the value returned by the test
    • Camel case convention is applied when fields are given to the test method, eg :
      • Number 1 => number1
      • First name => firstName
  • Once header is defined, texts and iteration lines can be mixed, eg :
A simple Tmar description file with a sequence table

Iteration inline

To be even more expressive Tmar supports the /inline statement.
It allows to spread the fields of an iteration in a text bloc

Note : Sequence inline and sequence in tabulation can be freely mixed in the same description

Sequence inline syntax :
  • As sequence table, sequence inline is introduce by the /sequence statement and the header definition (see Iteration table)
  • Each iteration is introduce by the /inline satement
  • Inline bloc may be closed by the optional /endInline statement
    • This statement is optional as Inline bloc are implicitly closed by any new Tmar statement
      ( /inline, /sequence...). However it's some times usefull to be able to start a new text after an inline definition
  • Values are spread in text between [ ] in the same order than header
    • If a different order is needed it's possible to redefine the sequence header as many times as necessary
  • Inline syntax also supports text fields value longer than one line of text using “”” “””
