We are currently using the Compuware suite of testing software: Client Vantage, Vantage View and TestPartner as well as QTP. We would like to consolidate all our scripts to Auto-IT to save costs.
I am happy with the scripting side of things, but in order to replace the Compuware products we need to have something equivalent to Vantage View to display the results of the test scenarios. Vantage View is a very customizable and extensive product, but we don't really need anything that advanced - we just want to be able to easily produce a graphical view of the data.
Does anyone have any suggestions of software which would fit the bill? If there is anyone who uses AutoIT to script scenarios, what do you use to display the timing data?
Here are a list of requirements (off the top of my head):
Preferably SQL Server based
Web interface - php or asp
Flexible/programmable - not overblown with unused functionality
Free or cheap!
Already a Microsoft Office house? Try Excel.
Or, if you have an SQL DB backend already, why not script it yourself to write to the DB. Then write your own web page to read the data from the DB and display as you desire. It will take a little time to get it all done but all in all would probably turn out better since you wrote it to your own specs and would be in essence free in the long run since you own the code.
If this or any response has helped you, please reply to the thread stating that it worked so other people with a similar issue will know how you fixed your issue!
My free tool XStudio (http://www.xqual.com) can display results from any kind of test (including autoit scripts). An autoit launcher is even provided (to be possibly customized to your specific needs).
There is 1 of your requirements not met though: there is not yet a web interface available.
Hey, Thanks for all the suggestions. The two tools mentioned don't really fit the bill as the data is already written to an SQL database, and also not having a web interface is a bit of a show-stopper. However the suggestion to build my own code is probably the route to take. I have been playing with dotnetcharting and although it's not free (around 400 dollars) it does seem very, very comprehensive. Also I found $400 underneath the matress!
If any body has any experience with it I'd be really pleased to know of your opinions - good or bad!
