Compiler Suite

A plugin developed by Catch to allow automated generation of multiple test cases containing defined variables and data.  Once variables and data are defined, select one of three generation methods:

    • Row-based : data in each row is generated as a test case
    • Minimum: minimum number of test cases are generated to cover each piece of data at least once
    • Pairwise : based on the observation that most errors are caused by interactions of at most two factors, pairwise-generated test suites cover all combinations of two, therefore are much more efficient and highly effective in finding errors and defects.  Google Pairwise and follow the rabbit.
Why use it?

Smarter test practices mean time is gained and quality is increased, all three generation methods can result in up to 85% time savings when creating test suites. When used in the right conditions, Pairwise testing can provide significant time savings by reducing the number of test cases that need to be run to reveal defects.

How can I use it?

A step-by-step process guides you through:

    • Adding a Compiler Suite template
    • Adding your test name and steps, including variables you wish to add
    • Adding the data for your variables
    • Choosing your generation method
    • Previewing and select the test cases you wish generate
    • Generate your test cases.
Use Cases
  • Creating combinatorial data for data load tests or projects with large amounts of data
  • Quickly creating hundreds of Test Cases where repetition is required
  • Data driven test planning
  • Creating test cases for an already implemented module without any documented specification
  • During review or walk through of specifications or code review.
