    Good job!


  2. Great Blog!

    How can I print the parameters of my test case?


  3. Hi Anna,

    Thanks a lot for this tutorial, it's been a big help. I have a question though. Are you able to generate a test report showing the detailed passing/failing steps of the test cases? I seem to only be able to generate a basic overall test run summary document. Can you email me at seveswim@yahoo.com? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
