I'm very excited to announce that VI Tester 1.1.2 has been released on the VI Package Network. As lead developer of VI Tester, I'm happy to tell you that this release fixes all of the known user-reported issues to date, as well a few other issues that we found internally at JKI.
If you're a VI Package Manager user, VI Tester 1.1.2 will automatically appear in your package list and you can install or upgrade in just a couple clicks. If you're not a VIPM user, you can get started for free with VIPM Community Edition and be up and running with VI Tester in a few short minutes.
The biggest changes in VI Tester 1.1.2 are the following:
- TestSuites can now contain multiple instances of test cases and/or test suites. This makes reusing tests easier as you can create test properties that get set during the TestSuite initialization step and reuse tests much more efficiently.
- Added support for Test templates. You can create a method called testTemplate.vit and it will never get executed by the test framework, but you can use it as a template to create other real test methods. We've also changed our TestCase template to include a testExample.vit file! (hat tip to Daklu)
- VI Tester is now built using LabVIEW 2009 instead of 8.2. There were some issues that we just couldn't fix easily in 8.2 so we decided it was time to upgrade. This means VI Tester 1.1.2 now requires LabVIEW 2009 or later.
Please download and install VI Tester and keep sending us your feedback; it's greatly appreciated and really helps improve VI Tester!
Now, go squash some bugs :).
