I am looking for advice on how to organize a testing suite using QAWP and MS Visual Sourcesafe. Our software has many separate functional windows. I'd like to have a well organized testing environment, with different directories of scripts for each window, but I have noticed that the workspace in QAWP doesn't allow subfolders.
In order to organize our files, we considered naming the files according to the window and submenu they are in, but the names would be unbearably long.
So now I have successfully hooked up QAWP with SourceSafe, which seems like it will allow more flexibility in file organization.
Has anybody been through this? Have advice on the most logical way to organize your scripts in the testing environment?
Create the subfolders in VSS. Then set up the repository to point to the sub folder.
Other experience with the repository:
I use the Export repository functionality once a week and check it in and out of source safe.
Using Source Safe connected to QAWP and having different versions of the repository was buggy for me (I didn't report it). Version 1.0 was check into Source safe first, then version 2.0 was created and checked in. When I needed to restore version 2.0 after the PC crashed I ended up with 1.0 from source safe. Lots of rework.
Exporting the repository seems to work best and you can organize the exported files into folders. Yet I don't have a distributed team around the globe so exporting the repository is not a big deal.
Its very nice having the two options with QAWP.
