FAQ
Snippet 1 below doesn't do much but works (more code is inserted by a
generator). In the next to last line the class name is also used as
argument. I have seen this construct before and have had error
messages tell me that the name is expected. Why is this so? In snippet
2 that I concocted is not required. Is it related to __init__ perhaps?

Thanks,

# Snippet 1 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

from PyHttpTestCase import PyHttpTestCase

# definition of test class
class MaxQTest(PyHttpTestCase):
def runTest(self):
self.msg('Test started')

# ^^^ Insert new recordings here. (Do not remove this line.)

# Code to load and run the test
if __name__ == 'main':
test = MaxQTest("MaxQTest")
test.Run()


# Snippet 2 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

class topClass():
str = 'abc'
def tcMsg(self):
print 'topClass tcMsg'

class one(topClass):
strOne = 'class one'

def classOneFun(self):
print 'this is classOneFun'
self.tcMsg()

if __name__ == 'main':
test = one()
test.classOneFun()

    The arguments are those expected by the class constructor: __new__, and
    initializer: __init__.
    It's up to the class designer to define which arguments are required -if
    any- and which ones are optional -if any-.
    In your case, see the documentation for PyHttpTestCase.
