Publish TAP Report

TAP, the Test Anything Protocol, is a text-based interface between testing modules in a test harness. See more details in its website below:

Since QuickBuild 6.0.9, TAP report can be published as other test reports. To publish TAP report, you need generate TAP reports first. Below is a TAP test stream copied from TAP website:

 ok 1 - Input file opened
 not ok 2 - First line of the input valid
 ok 3 - Read the rest of the file
 not ok 4 - Summarized correctly # TODO Not written yet

If the TAP is published successfully, QuickBuild can show you tests information like below:

QuickBuild will use your TAP file name as test set name automatically and then calculate the total tests, failed, passed for you, below image as an example:

TAP report by default has no duration information, but some test tool will add duration information in the diagnostic data like below:

 not ok 2 - First line of the input valid
     duration_ms: 123.456
     message: "Board layout"
     severity: comment

If you need duration information, you need add duration_ms in your diagnostic data.
