This is probably an easy one...but presently it has me stumped!
What is the best way to tell if the AUT is running?
That seemed too straighforward. What do you mean by "running?" Do you mean if it is just there, like Tony addressed, or do you mean there and not locked up?
Always gotta be the pessimist, eh, Mr. Gray? <grin>
Well, if that's the case, I suppose you could fire up the Task Manager (taskmgr.exe) and check to see if the application is in a Not Responding state.
A concerned Borland customer, a fly in the ointment, a wrench in the works.
You can do AUT.Exists() or if you want to check to see if the AUT's process is running, there are freebie tools to check running process's. One I use is SysInternal's pslist.exe
Have you ever noticed? Anybody going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac.
Ha! Yeah, it's the tester in me. The developer assumes it works because he/she wrote it to work. I assume it is broken and I just need to find out where.
sks04? Did Tony & Dave answer your question?
I was searching for the '.exists ()'...but had a brain-drain at the time. thanks guys!
