    Multi-Instance GUI Testing

    Our company needs a testing tool that could run multiple scripts simultaneously.

    Currently we have a number of C# scripts recorded with TestComplete, which does not let us run multiple instances. So we are in need for some other tool that would do the job.

    Any suggestions are welcome,
    Thank you.

    Re: Multi-Instance GUI Testing

    I don't have an answer on your question, but I'm curious and would like to know why you need multiple scripts running simultaneously?

    Can't a single test script that switches between different GUIs do the same? The tools are very fast in doing this...
    With a mix between keyword- and data-driven approach the "simulation" of running multiple scripts (within a single script) might be possible (and maintainable).

TestComplete comes with TestExecute to allow you to execute your tests on more than one machine.

    Re: Multi-Instance GUI Testing

    To bru,
    I was just thinking about the same thing that you suggested, about having one script switch between different GUIs. I'm going to look into that.
    Originally we planned to write scripts and while running one script keep incrementing 'users' to test the system (Visual Studio had LoadTesting tool is a good example of this). Unofrtunatelly that did not work out.

    To smacl,
    TestExecute works just like TestComplete - no multiple instances on one machine, which is my problem.

    Re: Multi-Instance GUI Testing

    What type of testing are you trying to do?

    At first it sounded like you wanted to functional/regression test an application with several instances at once, but in your last description it sounds like you want to conduct performance/load/stress type testing.

    The tool recommendations may be different based on the type of testing you want to conduct.

    Mercury: LoadRunner
    Compuware: QALoad
    Segue: Silk Performer

    These are all performance testing tools that can be running a script on a series of test boxes and then you can "Increment users to test the system."

    What is your testing goal?

    Problem,

    When the help here gets to a solution, will you be changing your handle from problem to "no problem"? [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">Yes, i'm doing testing described above. And it's goal is to test the server using clients.
    Using front end oracle application to 'test' the back end.

    Nanook, thank you for suggestions. I cannot use Mercury, but shall look into others.

    Re: Multi-Instance GUI Testing

    @"happy and relaxed" (assuming that you'll soon have to change your name [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] ):
    TestComplete has a "Load Testing-Add On". If you're already using TestComplete, this might be a choice for you...
