    Tool that compiles / EXE

    Do any of the Auotmation tools compile into a EXE that can be sent to customers to do some smoke testing.

    Re: Tool that compiles / EXE

    I've messed with TestPartner, WinRunner, QTP, and Rational Robot and they don't. I can't speak for any others, but those I know.

    Re: Tool that compiles / EXE

    Here's a question about that, though - and this is speaking from relative ignorance about these tools - knowing that, for example, QTP is building vbscript code underneath the script, would there be any value in pasting that script into another launchable app?

    That would work if you don't have any screens. You can't paste the object map (or whatever QTP calls it) into VB.

    Re: Tool that compiles / EXE

    Here is the problem we face

    A customer buys your software, then they expects you to validate it on every microsoft patch that comes out. If we were able to compile our suite into an EXE and sell it to the customer, then they could validate their enviroment. This would also enable us to update the tests and sell updates.

    Re: Tool that compiles / EXE

    WinBatch, a tool with very limited GUI testing abilities (at the level of mouse clicks, keystrokes and screenshot comparisons) offers a compiler that will create an exe-file out of WinBatch scripts.

    But as I said - very limited use for GUI testing ...

    Re: Tool that compiles / EXE

    Rafiki,

    That sounds like a backwards relationship. When you sell the software, you certify it to run at a certain patch level. If the customer wants to install further patches, they are altering their environment, and you no longer certify the software. Simple.

    Sounds like the customer is blackmailing you into doing QA they should be doing themselves.

    Re: Tool that compiles / EXE

    Python and Perl scripts can be compiled into EXE's. You can write any sort of test harness you want (including GUI level stuff).
