How do we do the regression test using the winrunner for GUI application. Here small doubt, how do we compare the two versions of an application.suppose we recorded the script for first version version 1 after some modification again we recorded the script for second version now Question is how do compare these two version in winrunner… and how report the bugs..
The tool creates a baseline from the first recording of the intial version of the software build and then compares the next version (or second build) to the first, during playback of the script on the latest version.
Automated build or version comparison is built-in functionality of all major testing tools.
It is the core requirement of doing testing with automated tools. Once while recording do the baselining by inserting verification points. You can customize these verification points too. During playback of script in the next round, these VPs are compared to baselined ones and according test results are shown. If test results are as desired then it is OK else you may enter defect in your respective defect tracking tool.
Apart from these application handled verification points, depending on your application, you can do it yourself with the help of manual scripting. Just test and compare required checkpoints and log them somewhere. It is just a way out.
