Has anyone used WinBatch?...
... for automated testing?
If so, what were your experiences? I used it several years ago in its infancy and had some success with it, in terms of automating business processes as a precursor to testing. I've noticed it has matured in terms of robustness and comprehensiveness. I'm not certain if it would currently fall into the same class as the tools spoke of here at QAF. Your thoughts?
BTW - I am in no way affiliated with the vendor. This is not an ad! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Re: Has anyone used WinBatch?...
I have used WinBatch for testing in the past. I liked it.
In my opinion, WinBatch and other general automation tools (I currently use WinTask), can provide a high percentage of the functionality of the major test tools at a fraction of the cost.
You give up some of the testing-specific bells and whistles, but often more than make up for that in simplicity.
The general automation tools tend to have somewhat less capability in the area of verification, but that can often be overcome with a bit of coding.
WinBatch has been around for a long time. It has many "extenders" and a large, worldwide user base. I suspect you could solve many of your test automation needs with it.
