This topic explains how to add Set-Up and Tear-Down tests—tests that are executed before or after the rest of the test suite. 

SOAtest’s Set-Up and Tear-Down tests that mirror the setUp and tearDown operations in JUnit test cases. 

To add a Set-Up or Tear-Down test:

  1. Select the Test Case Explorer tree node that represents the Test Suite you want to extend.
  2. Click the Add Test or Output toolbar button. 
  3. In the left pane, select Set-Up Test (if you want the tool to run before the test suite executes) or Tear-Down Test (if you want the tool to run after the test suite executes).
  4. In the right pane, select the tool you want to use.
  5. Click Finish.
  6. Double-click the node added for that tool, then review and modify settings as needed in the tool configuration panel that opens on the right.
