In TestComplete, you can export test results to an external file to view them outside of TestComplete. You can also parse the files containing the exported results.

The Structure of Exported Test Results

When exporting log data in the HTML format, TestComplete generates several files:

  • .htm, .gif, .htc, .js, .css - These files are needed to view the exported logs in Internet Explorer.

  • _root.js - Describes the hierarchy of the exported logs.

  • _*.js - Contain log data:

    • _ProjectSuiteLog.js - Contains the exported data of the project suite log.

    • _ProjectLog.js - Contains the exported data of the project log.

    • _TestLog.js - Contains the data of the exported test log.

The Structure of Test Results Exported to XML

If you launch TestComplete with the /exportLogToXMLAlso command-line argument and export test results in the HTML format, in addition to files described above, TestComplete will generate the following XML files:

  • root.xml - Describes the hierarchy of the exported logs.

  • *.xsd - Contain data schemes for the exported logs.

  • *.xml - Contains log data.

Type Description
aqds:string String type.
aqds:text Text of memos and descriptions that may contain line breaks and tab symbols (for instance, the Remarks section of the Script log).
aqds:image The file name (*.jpg) of a log message icon.
aqds:picture The file name of an image (.jpg) associated with a message.
aqds:datetime The date/time field.
aqds:boolean A Boolean value (True/False).
aqds:int An integer value.
aqds:float A floating-point value.
aqds:hyperlink A link to a Web page, file or any other resource.
aqds:table A compound (tabular) type.
