Can any one share with me the best of using QArun compare to Rational Robot on functional testing level.And what you think of the using of one of them when testing Delphi applications. What's the best can fit the needs. email@example.com
I feel it depends on the knowledge and experience of your test automators. If they are programers looking to learn another suedo language and suffer with screen coordinates, then Robot is your tool. If they are testers or jr. programers, QARun is much easier to learn and implement without so many dependencies on coordinates. As with any tool purchase, contact the vendors for a proof of concept (POC) on your application. Just be well prepaired for the POC!!! Who knows, you might get a free lunch out of it!
We are using QARun to automate Delphi. I've never used an automation tool before. I have a few years programming background with c++, VB, and perl. The QARun language is easy, but doesn't work all that well with Delphi objects. Especially data grids. I find myself spending a lot of time creating functions to work around QARun's non-support of Delphi data grids(and some other objects). So far I have been able to avoid using mouse coordinates, but I'm not always confident with the work arounds I have to put in place to use the tool with some Delphi objects.

Were you able to retrieve the (Column N, Row M) in QARun without using coordinates?
I was not (at least for HTML tables)!
