“Test Values” Dictionary

New “Test Values” Dictionary for Adding Test-only Symbolic Constants

VectorCAST version 2019 contains a new test-only symbolic constants feature that allows the user to supply constants stored in a portable file (.xml) rather than defined in the source file. This feature helps make test cases more portable by replacing hard-coded scalar values with symbols that can be controlled independently of the tests.

There are several benefits of this feature:

  • Improved test readability. Replacing hard-coded values with symbolic names allows the tests to be understood more easily, since you might see: maximumSpeed in place of value 200, for example.
  • Decreased test maintenance. Using symbolic names allows you to easily change the value of the symbol once rather than changing it in every test where the value is used.
  • Better support for variant testing. Symbolic names can be set to different values for different test contexts, which allow maximumSpeed to have a different value for one customer configuration, compared to another configuration.
