Performance Improvements in the DSM Test Case Tool

Test case tool provides the infrastructure to define inputs and expected output for decision services and is very well integrated with DSM and the BRF+ workbench. The Test Case Administration screen looks as below: –

You could read more about the test-case tool via the SCN page: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-57956

Following are some recent improvements done in the tool: –

  • Loading of test-cases for a particular function is much faster now, it takes less than a second to load 400 odd test-cases plus associated test-runs where in earlier it used to time-out – this improvement has been introduced via note: 2217352 – with this correction we read the test-run details on demand i.e. only when a particular test run is clicked
  • Test-cases now can be executed in an asynchronous manner rather than the earlier much slower synchronous sequential manner of execution – this has been enabled via note 2277388 – with this correction the performance of the execution now depends on the no. of free resources available in the system. A simple comparison would be as below: – o 5 test-cases each taking 2s to execute with 5 free CPU processes would earlier take 10 seconds to execute but now would take between 2 – 3 seconds only i.e. almost a gain of 7 seconds
  • The above note provides apis which could help build a report for scheduling of test-execution for multiple functions in the background. A sample report looks as below:-
