Re: Using Databanks within e-Tester
OK, I think I get your meaning here. Let me restate it just to let you know where I am coming from. Your application generates the current balance of an account and you want to be able to either use that current value (different from the recorded value) during playback OR you want to use that dynamically generated balance later in your script for something. In case 1 you can use the properties of the parameter to specify to e-Tester to use the default value (right click on the parameter and bring up its properties). In case two you need to use some vba to grab the value on one page and then set it on another. You can do this in a variety of ways. Once you grab that value (let's say you parsed for the value attribute of the input box) you can store it in a variable and then do what you want with it from setting other parameters to comparing it to other values on the page.
I hope all this helps. Generally speaking I find that there is always a way to get something done in e-Tester. I have been using e-Tester for two years now and I am still learning new and clever ways to do things. Many of them from folks posting to this forum.
Using Databanks within e-Tester
My corporation is currently utilizing e-TEST suite for its e-Load and e-Tester (web regression only) capabilities and are looking into how this suite can be used for full functional testing.
Our application is web-based banking product and we need to be able to work with data (ex. account balances) that would be dynamically changing with each script run.
Basically, we want to be not only able to 'get' but also to 'put' data to the databanks. Also, possibly perform certain calculations with the data in the databank.
Does anyone know if this is possible with this tool or can it be accomplished with another? I have seen other tools with datasheets that appear to be able to do more than e-Tester. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
