Functional testing using Threaded approach thru componentization of screen
Has anybody tried the threaded approach of testing in Winrunner or any other tool.
I want to componentise the screen I have recorded.
For example I have recorded a screen which must be able to take a predefined input from any previous process in the end-to-end business process and also to output predefined values. But the predefined values may be multiple in nature. (for example a delivery process may be call()ed after creation of 3 sales orders but should create 1 delivery record against 3 sales orders). The delivery process is however recorded only once.
I want to handle this without changing the script.
As a possible solution Can we output sales order no;s into Excel spreadsheet or put the Sales order no. in global array. This could then be a input to delivery process.
The idea is that each screen should be considered as an reusable object anywhere without changing the script. by doing that each end-to-end process should be thru a scripts which has a series of call()s.
I appreciate a good solution.
