Narratives

Nov 27, 2009 at 12:59 PM

Hi,

What is exactly a narrative? What does it do with the objects we are giving as parameters?

For example in "Example Four", I don't fully understand what we are doing. We are using a narrative to do something on a narrative, but how and for waht do we use the narrative class?

 

Thank you very much in advance for your help!

Daniel

Hi Daniel

A narrative is a class that storyQ uses. It represents both the human readable text, as well as what should happen when the story is executed (it might pass, fail an assertion, or pend)

I guess the example is trying to be a bit clever by testing itself?

Hi Rob,

Thank you very much for your answer.

I've an other question. I'm using msunit for the tests. Is there a way to show the details of the story like on the outputs for the examples? I'm only getting if the test passed or failed.

Cheers,

Daniel

Hi Daniel

If you're using visual studio to run your tests, then I think you have to double click on a test to see its details (which include the test's console output, which is what storyQ prints to)
