7.12 Event Handlers

Jubula offers Event Handlers to react to errors during test execution and to continue the test in a way you define.

An Event Handler

Image EventHandler Event Handler

is a Test Case used with a special function. It is only executed when a certain type of error occurs. There are four different types of error in Jubula , and each Test Case can have an Event Handler for each error type. You can specify different reactions to each different error type, so that serious errors can stop the test, but unimportant errors will not affect the execution.

Because Event Handlers are normal Test Cases , they can also contain Event Handlers , can do any of the things that a normal Test Case can do. The only restriction is that you cannot add a Test Case to itself as an Event Handler .
