Abstract

A method is described to provide a user interface to coded test cases written to test Virtual Resource Manager (VRM) function interfaces. In accordance with the new method, a set of user-interface routines is made available to testers, so that they can better control the execution of their test cases coded in PL.8 code. The test case should follow a common format shown in Fig. 1. The external procedure and variable declarations provide the user interface: TLINIT - Initializes all variables and displays the tool menu for the user. TLBREAK - After each step in the test case, execution control variables are checked. Execution continues according to these variables. (Image Omitted) TLTERM - Allows the user to terminate the test case, or dump the error logs.
