Step 42 – Testing the Manifest File Reader

Time to see if everything works. I’m going to test my code using two different manifest files:

To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever come across a multiple-SCO content package in a real application, but I do need to be able to handle it if I do stumble across it.

So let’s try the single SCO manifest file. When I run my manifest file reader, I get the following output.

Identifier Title MasteryScore LaunchData SCO Entry Point Required Files
P1 Browser Options 80   Simulation.htm Simulation.swf
Simulation.htm
SCORM_support/scorm_support.htm
SCORM_support/scorm_support.js
SCORM_support/scorm_support.swf

This is what I’d expect from a manual analysis of the manifest file. So far, so good.

Now the multiple SCO manifest file. This is more challenging since, if you look at the manifest file itself, you can see that there are a host of linked resources, and that a number of the resources are shared by the two SCOs. So let’s give it a try – here’s what I get.

A lot more complicated but, comparing the output with the manifest file, it would certainly seem that I’ve successfully disentangled all of the dependencies, and identified the two SCOs.

All looking pretty good so far. Tomorrow I’ll post a copy of the manifest file reader code for you to download and play with.
