    v42 v43  
    2020So what is a test run?

    22 A test run is specific set of test cases for a particular milestone or version of the software under test for a particular tester.  The test managment plugin creates a trac ticket of type testcase for each of the selected test cases.  This is really powerful because you can take full advantage of the custom reporting engine in TRAC to track test results and test progress of each tester.

     22A test run is specific set of test cases for a particular milestone or version of the software under test for a particular tester.  Each tester owns a single instance of a test case in the form of a ticket.  This allows you to track the progress of individual testers as they complete their set of testcases.  This is really powerful because you can take full advantage of the custom reporting engine in TRAC to look for open tickets of type testcase that belong  to a particular tester, and also monitor the progress of a group of testers.  There was some confusion about this as it seemed like a single ticket would be "owned" by multiple testers.  Essentially what happens is the testcase is an xml document stored in subversion.  The testcasemanagementplugin creates a ticket with the test case details as the ticket description and assigns that ticket to a specific tester.

    2524The advantage of having a testcase management tool in trac is that it removes the need to have yet another system that manages testcases...with all the usual problems of maintaing user account, system upgrades, licensing issues.  The other advantage is that it adds more transparency to the testing process as the tool and any testcases are right there for anyone to see.

    2928Note this plugin is designed to work with Subversion, although I don't use any specific subversion code.  Potentially this plugin could work with other TRAC supported configuration management systems.  I just haven't tried it.
