i have created repository when application was running on IE browser.Now i ran my script on firefox browser but qtp is not recognizing the objects. Would i create a new one or is there any workaround for same?
Please help me out.
Ran, in the future please be a good sqaForum citizen and give your posting a descriptive title, not a generic one like "QTP Repository".
My 2 cents ON...
Tread lightly and think hard about investing time normalizing even a small number of scripts across 2 browsers, let alone 3 or more.
Rather, use some light manual testing through some of the primary workflows to "bless" the non-MS browsers as "compatible". Unless you have a very unusual audience, let the tiny number of customers using the non-MS browsers (MS owns like 95% of the market on Windows) find the incompatibilities in the deep or lightly used application workflows.
Invest the time saved--an hour, ten or 1000--automating more test cases using the IE browser--thereby improving automated test coverage, as I feel it is better to have 100 automated test cases that only run under the MS browser than 50 that run under two or more different browser types.
Don't drink the kool aid about seamless cross-browser compatibility, no matter the tool vendor--it's a fool's errand.
My 2 cents OFF...
There are other comments on this forum (and probably all of the tools forums) on this matter, search using the key phrase (with quotes), "cross browser".
Thanks for good suggestion.
but i will have to run scripts on FF, because it's client demand.i have ran scripts on IE-4,5,6,7.
