Re: Location of 'techniques' in TCDL

Hi Christophe,

you wrote that with the first option ('techniques' in 'locations' after
'location') we would be able to describe how a location and a certain
technique relate. The current schema would allow the following:

<locations>
   <location>
   </location>
   <location>
   </location>
   ...
   <technique>
   </technique>
   <technique>
   </technique>
   ...
</locations>

But what does that indicate? That the first <location> belongs to the
first <technique>? 
I see no possibility to express relationship between a location and a
technique from this example.

Wouldn't it be better to construct something like:

<locations>
   <location>
      <technique>
      </technique>
      <technique>
      </technique>
      ...
   </location>
   <location>
      <technique>
      </technique>
      <technique>
      </technique>
      ...
   </location>
   ...
</locations>

Looking forward to read your thoughts on that...

Regards,
Daniela

Hi,

While cleaning up the last issues in TCDL, I noticed a curious bug/
feature in the schema: 
'techniques' can be added 
* either in 'locations' (after 'location', which is the first child 
element of 'locations'),
* or in 'rule', after 'locations'.

The second option is what I originally proposed [1], but the first 
option would allow us to describe more accurately how a 'location' and

certain 'techniques' relate, especially if a test case uses several 
techniques in different locations. The latter may not be a use case in

this task force, but it would be interesting for BenToWeb or other test

suite efforts. Are there any objections to removing 'techniques' from 
'rule' and allowing it only in 'locations'?

Best regards,

Christophe
