    [TTALE-106] Add a brief description of report

    卢声远 Shengyuan Lu Newbie
      Add a method 'outputDescription' which returns a default description String in org.jboss.tattletale.reporting.Report. Then each concrete Report class overrides the 'outputDescription' to define its own description.
      a): In each report:
      Append outputDescription in each concrete Report  writeHtmlBodyHeader(). Example:
      void writeHtmlBodyHeader(BufferedWriter bw) throws IOException{
            bw.write("<h1>" + NAME + "</h1>" + Dump.NEW_LINE);
            //Append Description
            bw.write("<h2>" + outputDescription() + "</h2>" + Dump.NEW_LINE)
         }
      b): In general report:
      Modify Dump.generateIndex(). Example:
      bw.write("<a href=\"" + r.getDirectory() + "/index.html\">" + r.getName() +" ("+r.outputDescription()+ ")</a> (");

      Hi, TTale guys, I am new to here!

       

      I have an idea about issue: TTALE-106 here.

      Add a method 'outputDescription' which returns a default description String in org.jboss.tattletale.reporting.Report. Then each concrete Report class overrides the 'outputDescription' to define its own description.

       

      • In each report:

       

      Modify each concrete Report writeHtmlBodyHeader() in each concrete Report. Of course, we could leave the report alone if we don't want to add description to the report.

       

      Example:

      void writeHtmlBodyHeader(BufferedWriter bw) throws IOException{

            //...

            bw.write("<h1>" + NAME + "</h1>" + Dump.NEW_LINE);

            //Append Description

            bw.write("<h2>" + outputDescription() + "</h2>" + Dump.NEW_LINE)

      //...

      }

       

      • In general report:

      Modify Dump.generateIndex().

      Example:

      bw.write("<a href=\"" + r.getDirectory() + "/index.html\">" + r.getName() +" ("+r.outputDescription()+ ")</a> (");

       

      How do you think about it?

       

      Sample patch for 'Dependant report' and screenshots are attached.

          The property should probably be called "description" instead. And its output go to a <p></p> tag instead,

           

          I don't know about including the description in the general report (index.html).

           

          The text for the descriptions should be read from a ResourceBundle such that the descriptions can be l10n/i18n - at the same time the rest of the text strings in the reports can be moved too.

           

          Thanks for looking into this
