A while ago I asked something similar with no response. I hope
somebody will know the answer and help me this time.
I would like to incorporate a final sanity checks for the produced executable.
Note I have tons of unit tests in place and I build and run them with
the rules dedicated for that. This is not what I am asking for.
What I need is to execute tests that will validate that everything was
put together correctly.
Say if I have
How I can do:
execute app : $arg ;
<testing.arg>--app_path= ... ; #what that will be resolved to the
location of the app executable
# also something that will make sure that validate-app
# will be executed after app is already built/updated
