XSpec Helper View Add-on

Oxygen XML Developer offers an add-on that contributes an XSpec Test Results view, that provides the ability to run XSpec test scenarios and view the results directly in the application.

To install the add-on, follow these instructions:
  1. Go to Help > Install new add-ons to open the add-on selection dialog box.
  2. Paste https://www.oxygenxml.com/InstData/Addons/community/updateSite.xml in the Show add-ons from field (or select it from the drop-down menu).
  3. Select the XSpec Helper View and XSpec Framework add-ons (both are required), and click Next.
  4. Read the end-user license agreement. Then select the I accept all terms of the end-user license agreement option and click Finish.
  5. Restart the application.
The add-on contributes a Run XSpec test scenarios button on the main toolbar. Click that button to execute an XSpec file and open its results in the XSpec Test Results view. At this point you can do the following:
  • Switch to the XSLT and use the Run buttons in this view to execute a particular scenario.
  • For each test, there is also a Show button that selects the corresponding test in the main editing area.
  • For failed tests, you can click a particular test to open a diff comparison between the expected and actual results.
