When TextTest doesn't do what you expect it to, the best way
to find out why is usually to enable its own logging mechanism
for the relevant aspect of the functionality. This is enabled
primarily by using the “Write TextTest diagnostics”
check box under “Running” and “Advanced”
tabs in the static GUI (-x option from the command line).
TextTest uses log4py
for its own logging. To configure which loggers will output and
where they will do so, you will need to edit the log4py
configuration file. The location of this is set by the field
“Configure self-diagnostics from”, in the same
location as above (-xr on command line). It defaults to
$TEXTTEST_HOME/Diagnostics/log4py.conf, and an initial file with
everything disabled is provided with the TextTest download in
this location (where the “tests” subdirectory is set
You can then open this file and look at the various loggers
in that file and enable any that seem to be related to your
problem, generally by changing the “LogLevel” to
“Normal” for it. Most loggers by default write a
file to $TEXTTEST_HOME/Diagnostics, but of course you can
configure it to write anywhere you like, either via the file
itself or from the static GUI tab given above.
It's time to mail the TextTest mailing list at sourceforge
. We should be able to respond within a day or so.
