I'm new to the forums but am pleased with the amount of information related to automated test frameworks and such.
Well, I was curious if people would be interested in a tool that was similar to JavaDocs but for WinRunner scripts. I've written one and it's been extremely useful for our team and thought others could benefit as well. Basically the tool parses all of your custom library scripts, pulls out functions from them and you can view them via a webpage.
It's still a little rough around the edges but I could clean it up and perhaps distribute as shareware if people are really interested. If you're curious how it works, I've written the app in Java and will run in any application server like Tomcat. The app can be configured through a property file to look for scripts in directories you specify. When users come to the webpage, the layout is very similar to JavaDocs with a list of functions in the left panel. You can filter by project directories and individual script files. In the right side you view the details of the functions including comments and the actual TSL code. Add a new script to a project depot and it automatically parses those as well.
This tool is great if you've got like 20+ library files and spend time wading through TSL code to find the right custom function!
Anyways, if people are interested I could work on making it available in a relatively short time.
The left panel has two parts. The top left panel allows you to filter by projects (scripts living in different directory hierarchies) and filter by script files. The bottom left shows you the list of functions (filtered by what you specified above.) The Right area shows you the details. Where function lives, parameters, etc.
PS. Sorry about the lack of colors, converting the image to gif seemed to have stripped it all out.
Looks like there is some interest here for the tool... I find it really useful so I would be happy to get it to you folks. I'm really busy the next couple weeks (moving apartments and all) so it would be sometime in Mid-Febuary. I'm not so sure about putting the source files up, but I may consider sending it individually.
