Inheriting test classes

Hi,

All my GUI test classes contain this code within the constructor.

class ST_MSE_33
def initialize

start_browser
login

rescue => e
 p "test failed: #{e.message}"
 p   e.backtrace
ensure
 log_out
 close_window

end
end

That is, there is always the same start and same end, but a different
middle.
Is there any way I could use inheritance to avoid duplication?

Thank You

Aidy

I would use the following construct:

class GeneralBehaviour
def initialize
start_browser
login

specific_behaviour

...

end

this is only necessary if GeneralBehaviour can be used

on its own

def specific_behaviour
end
end

class SpecifB1 < GeneralBehaviour
def specific_behaviour
# do sth specific :wink:
end
end
