The package is mandatory on the target that is being tested, in this
case a MeeGo device that has core as its repository. Having the package
also in Tools:Testing is more a matter of convenience - you can also
test your Qt applications running your host machine. The tools:testing
repo doesn't offer anything else to the target device (at least right
now), so I'd rather have this mandatory package on the target.
A simplified cut-through overview of the components involved in the
testability driver for anyone interested:
- The Testability Driver is a driver for running automated tests. Ruby
is used for test description.
- This translates to: TDriver (ruby library) finds SomeButton object
with property "name" with value "MyButton" in myapplication, and tries
to tap (click) it.
- If the object target was found, TDriver core sends the operation to
the target via TCP/IP.
- qttas-server (on our MeeGo device) receives the command and relays it
- myapplication, via a plugin it automatically loads from qttas-server
package, finds SomeObject Qt object and sends the QEvents for the tap
operation. SomeButton is tapped.
The Testability Driver core is two rubygem packages
(testability-driver, testability-driver-qt-sut-plugin) and the entire
test could be executed on the target. But for now we want to enable host
based testing, and for this we need qttas-server in trunk.
