I want to create unittest test with two different set up and tearDown methon in same class with two different test.
each test will use its specific setUp and tearDown method in python unittest framework.
could anyone help me.
print "start the process test cases "
if __name__ == '__main__':
In the question, you mention that you have two tests, each with its own setup and teardown. There are at least two ways to go:
You can either embed the
tearDown code into each of the tests:
class FooTest(unittest.TestCase): def test_0(self): ... # 1st setUp() code try: ... # 1st test code except: ... # 1st tearDown() code raise def test_1(self): ... # 2nd setUp() code try: ... # 2nd test code except: ... # 2nd tearDown() code raise
Alternatively, you can split the class into two classes:
class FooTest0(unittest.TestCase): @classmethod def setUp(cls): ... @classmethod def tearDown(cls): ... def test(self): ...
The first option has fewer classes, is shorter, and more straightforsard. The second option more cleanly decouples setting up the fixture, and cleaning it up, then the test code itself. It also future proofs adding more tests.
You should judge the tradeoffs based on your specific case, and your personal preferences.
