need your advise
I am trying to automate certain tasks on UNIX that are necessarily performed with the GUI interaction.
These apps are x based and need xterm to run them.
I am sure that many members of this forum must have faced/resolved this problem.
I tried the Winrunner I was able to perform many of the activities but would like to know if
- Is there any advantage in using the QA apllication on UNIX (rather than WIndows )
- Is there any distavantage using the QA application from WIndows ( like winrunner in analog mode )
Re: need your advise
You should not have any problem to cover functional testing whatever be the setup. But definitely you shall need to repeat the tests, automated or manual, on UNIX and Windows both if you are supporting the application on both platforms.
If your query (advantage/disadvantage) is for resources involved then definitely testing on Windows platform would involve lesser cost, less intricacies but most of the time such cost related advantages/disadvantages are not the criterion but the customer need and deployment scenario.
