Subject: [Boost-build] testing an application

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

exe app

How I can do:


execute app : $arg ;


unit-test validate-app
     <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
