Retrieving the location of a TrueLog file

Retrieving the location of a TrueLog file

When replaying a multiple Silk4J or Keyword Driven Tests via a suite, it is possible that a user may need to print or log the location of the TrueLog file to the console or log file so that it can be easily located for review. In order to print such information we must access some internal methods of the Silk Test JTF framework to stop the TrueLog and return its location. To ensure that a complete TrueLog is generated for all tests in the suite, we must add an @AfterClass method to the suite class, that will we use for stopping the TrueLog and retrieving the file location.

package truelog;

import org.junit.AfterClass;
import org.junit.runner.RunWith;

import com.borland.silktest.jtf.internal.TrueLogProxy;
import com.borland.silktest.jtf.keyworddriven.KeywordTestSuite;
import com.borland.silktest.jtf.keyworddriven.KeywordTests;

public class SuiteTest {

     public static void stopTrueLogAndPrintTrueLogFileLocation()
          // caution: only do this at the end of the complete test run! Otherwise you would break your TrueLog.

          System.out.println("TrueLog location: " + TrueLogProxy.getInstance().getActualTrueLogFileName());
