Generating Test Containers

How to generate a Test Container

If you have already developed your SW Version model you have to make it available to the TestResults.io portal. The portal expects a .testcontainer file created out of your SW Model. The container consists of:
  • Images associated with your SW Version Model project
  • SW Version model DLLs (the code you have written in Visual Studio)
To generate such a container simply :
  • Open the Visual Studio Solution Explorer
  • Right click on the SW Version Project
  • Select the TestResults.io context menu
  • Select the Generate software version test container option
A successful generation of the test container will be also indicated in the Visual Studio output section as follows:
Container was successfully created. C:\Projects\MyFirstTrioSolution\MyFirstSoftware_1_0\bin\Debug\PortalUpload\MyFirstSoftware_V1_0_20190506_154207.testcontainer

Test Container file

The test container file name is always named according to the following schema
SWName_SWrevision_GenerationDate_GenerationTime.testcontainer
Therefore the following test case container MyFirstSoftware_V1_0_20190506_154207.testcontainer can be decoded as follows:
  • SW Name: MyFirstSoftware
  • Version: 1.0
  • Generation Date: 2019-05-06
  • Generation Time: 15:42:07
The next chapter (Publishing SW Models) explains how to make the testcontainer available in the Portal.
