Yes, it is definitely possible to use a composite datatype in functional
tests, and a number of tools in the Galaxy distribution do so.
Hooray - I was hoping this functionality already existed but was just
on how to define composite inputs, you can look at the tools in
tools/rgenetics/, such as rgGLM.xml or rgHaploView.xml.
Got it - I see that uses the tag <composite_data> within the <param> tag.
For the outputs, rgClean.xml provides an example of comparing a
composite output dataset with the expected test data.
Here there is a tag <extra_files> used within the <output> tag.
Many thanks Dave - those should be enough to get me started, and
maybe I can update the wiki once I'm happy with how this works...
