Our company has just bought QARun and is looking to implement it for Client Server Apps. I have yet to see the product up and running. Could anyone advise me what the Scripting Language is like and ease of use - even paste a piece. I have only ever used Silk Tests 4Test b4 so any advise would be most appreciated.
Compuware QARun is a good product. Have you also brought some of their other tools like FileAid and QA Director they are also good.
The language is not like 4Test but it is similar to C and VB. The learning curve is quite short.
It can do most things that the other tools can do e.g. query databases, has functions to make your script data driven, Can check object properties, bit maps, you can create your own custom functions as well as call external ones (in Dll's). They also have a new product that is more towards web testing called TestPartner.
Compuware is the largest software company of all the tools vendors. Support is reasonable. They have more tools then any other test tool vendor (Rational possibly the exception).
Code snippet from their manual below: (you should have it)
DB query:dbConnect( "DSN=qademo" ) ; ODBC connection to datasource
dbSelect( "SELECT * FROM CarList" ) ; select records
dbMoveFirst( ) ; move to first record
While dbEOF = 0 ; while not at end of result set
MsgBox( "", dbGetField( "Make" ) ); display record
