    Anyone have any experience with using WinRunner on a Citrix Client?

    Re: Citrix Client

    Yes. If you do a search in the Discussion forums of Mercury's website there are a couple of setup guides for doing this. It is not very difficult but can be frustrating. Just remember to not perform any get_text functions... the terminal server will blue screen and reboot.

    I have done some WR work on that platform. Since there are no objects
    for WR to see at the desktop, your're stuck with analog methods or
    OCR.

    In my case, I had to validate a report on the client's screen. The
    validation and the screen navigation were accomplished with WR's font
    recognition and mapping the "virtual objects" to x,y coordinates for
    window navigation. The character recognition works, mostly.
    Unfortunately, "mostly" causes lots of problems.

    Segue gave up putting OCR into SilkTest (and other independent
    attemps were given up) possibly because they couldn't get it 100%
    right. If wish the "much praised" font recognition of WinRunner were
    better.

    Re: Citrix Client

    CitraTest is designed "specifically" for testing Citrix applications (load, compatibility, and functional). This unique solution dynamically searches the desktop (*no x/y) for predefined images (i.e. buttons, windows, icons, anything), has very intelligent OCR, and is very scalable. For more information, check out www.tevron.com.

    I am sorry but you have forgotten a step. To overcome this problem both the AUT and WinRunner client must be installed on the Terminal server. When a Citrix session is opened and the AUT and WinRunner are executed then you have the same look and feel of object oriented testing.

    I sure hope he already has all the copies of WinRunner he needs when he finds out how much this is going to cost per virtual user.

    Re: Citrix Client

    I was able to program Context Sensitive scripts on Citrix earlier this year. The trick was to have both Winrunner and the AUT on the server.

    Re: Citrix Client

    Citratest has good image manipulation but is very poor in every other area, the ocr is a joke, it has no window handling capabilities whatsoever, and screws up if you try to run the citratest front end with vb (which you will have to as you have to write your own libraries to get it to do anything useful). Its a simple tool, generations behind rational and mercury in terms of functionality and stability. We have managed to integrate it into Test Director, but with no help from Tevron (or Mercury for that matter!)

    My advice is to use any other tool, wr, rvt, on the citrix server. Running any tool on the client, where you are basically looking at a series of bitmaps is asking for disaster IMO.
