Parent page: Generating Test Reports
The previous post sets a lot of requirements altogether. Let’s try now to put some answers.
How we can have a free, portable, yet powerful viewer?
If we go with a web-page format, we can use a web browser for that purpose.
If we go with XML format for log files, we can present reports as HTML (web-page) through XSL scripts, while retaining organized data structures that can be processed quite easily.
Within a web page, we can post hyperlinks to any supplemental items (rich text notes, captured data, etc.) and embed screenshots.
