Detailed Description

Boolean expressions to determine validity of elements

OTX documents may contain a list of validity terms. This is required for the validities concept. A validity term is a uniquely named, reusable Boolean term which is defined at global level. Validity terms are primarily used to configure test sequence behaviour according to runtime context. In contrast to Boolean context variables which can be used as validity, too, validity terms allow describing compound Boolean expressions which may depend on more than just one Boolean value. Validities can be addressed cross-document; this allows defining a set of popular validities in a central OTX document which can be reused by other OTX documents. Action nodes, Group nodes and Procedures can be connected to validity terms by the validFor attribute. At runtime, the Boolean term value of the referenced validity term is evaluated; it determines whether an ActionRealisation, GroupRealisation or a Procedure is valid or not.

◆ realisation

BooleanTerm OpenTestSystem.Otx.Core.Validity.realisation

The condition for the validity

The BooleanTerm given by the realisation element represents the validity condition: The validity term holds if and only if the term evaluation returns true with respect to the runtime context.

◆ visibility

Visibility OpenTestSystem.Otx.Core.Validity.visibility
