[erlang-questions] Test system for automatic testing of an application
Tue Apr 2 18:43:11 CEST 2019
I am thinking about creating a test environment for automatically
The application produces several files (logfiles and binary archives)
and acts as a network server (GUI via HTTP, some other socket interfaces).
The test harness will have to
* start the application (with parameters)
* check that it successfully starts (checking the logfile, listening ports)
* run a test suite for all interfaces and scenarios
* shutdown the application
I already have an erlang application which can act as a protocol
simulator for the socket interfaces.
The test harness can run on the same node as the application, so the
test harness can start it via os:cmd() or a port.
I am considering to use Common Test for the job.
Has anybody used Common Test to verify the correctness of a non-Erlang
Would it be a good choice? So far, I think that I can map all my test
scenarios to test cases, groups and suites.
