    Is it possible to trigger other tests (besides WR) from TD ?

    Hi,
    Can we start/schedule tests other than WinRunner tests from Test Director's web interface.
    For example, can we trigger a sheel script on a machine from Test Director.

    I am looking for a web interface though which I can schedule/run/ manage WinRunner and other non-WR automated tests.

    I would appreicate responses in this regard.

    Thanks.

    Yes, since V 7.5 they have a kind of interface called VAPI-XP where you can start Javascript, VB-Script and Perl from the Testdirector.

    Thanks a lot for your response....Do you know if Unix shell scripts can be triggered too from TD ?
    Is there any documentation available which gives us an idea of all that is supported through TD ?

    Thanks.

    I'd like to do shell scripts as well. Writing a perl script just to kick off my shell scripts would be annoying (but doable I guess).

    Did you ever find the answer?

    The TD documentation is reasonably accurate. Also, Mercury recently posted an updated version of their integrations matrix.

    dkas.
    My question back to you is, what's the purpose of schedule/run/managing your shell scripts from TD? Is your intent to pass results back through to TD for metrics and reporting or are you simply planning to use TD as the triggering device? If the latter, seems overkill to me.
    Resistance is futile.
