UFT 12.0 Automation feasibility on Main Frame emulators [IBM TN 5250, TN 3270] with
We have an applicaiton which runs on AIX Operating system with emulator IBM TN 5250 with Websphere, we wanted to to know whether UFT 12.0 can suppport these technologies for automation testing.
Need what add-in is required and what kind of setup we need to do?
I have not done mainframe TE for many years. 10 years ago it was worth spending time to find a good terminal emulator that uniquely identifies each field on the screen. In a way it was easier than browsers because there were very few types of objects. Labels, buckets of data, buttons. Also it was good to be able to sync on the lightening bolt. Other than that it was easier to recognize objects.
If you can find a Terminal Emulator with an HLLAPI then you'll be able to work with the TE add-in in UFT without an issue.
As Kevin mentioned, it's worth spending the time to find a 'good' Terminal Emulator.
