I am looking to implement an Automation Framework for the organisation that I am working for. I see Ranorex as a good tool but am unable to find the information on the following subject, can someone help me or inform please. You may like to extend this post on the ideas on how Ranorex can be used for framework we are trying to implement.
a) We have a Product and 4 different Projects, that needs automating. Product has its configuration but on project level each project has its own configuration. I need to have the framework that test both Product and Project in a single batch
IDEA: Develop the Automation with common functions, which can be shared between different projects and then trigger each automation project as part of a single batch.
* Does Ranorex allow to create more than one Project and then allow a single function to be shared between these projects? Example in Compuware Test Partner you have Higher level (call Common) and 2nd level (call Project) anything written in the Project level is only used for a specific Project but in Common section the function or procedure can be called by any project.
* Can we trigger a Test Agent via Batch file to kick off Testing Task OR can we schedule auto Test kickoff in Ranorex to start Auto Regression Testing every evening 9pm
b) Now Development Team has demand to structure a framework in such way that Development team can utilise the tool for Integration Testing. Because if developer make changes on Product level they want to kick off the test to ensure the changes are not having unwanted impact on any of the project (for example upgrade)
* Can Development Team Integrate with Ranorex to perform Integration Testing once they complete their build >>> If anyone has done this in the past or have similar framework can they please share their Idea.....
I think we can have a good conversation on this and your help is appreciated.
I have tried it, can't post my query. when try to register it ask me to enter "Please enter RXAUT in the following field.:
For protection against spam, Answer the above question. " but there is no question...... Unless anyone of you know what RXAUT is?
But more to your question... You can use the Ranorex API in your own C# automation code from within Visual Studio. So, if you can code it, you can do it. Your limitation is basically your coding skills.
I've been in the process of evaluating Ranorex for my organization as well, and we only decided to acquire it last week - I'm just waiting for my management to complete the purchasing process. According to everything I've read, you should be able to create modules in Ranorex (whether you create the modules via record-and-play or via code) that can be shared across different test suites and projects, though I haven't used that particular functionality yet.
During my trial period, I reached out to technical support for assistance when I ran into a few problems, and they helped me resolve each issue I ran into. The company also extended my trial period for a little while when I ran into a work crunch that prevented me from completing my proof-of-qualification testing during my initial trial period. If you're having problems, you might want to contact the folks at Ranorex directly.
Sorry I didn't see this sooner, but I was dealing with quite a work crunch.
No, I don't work for Ranorex, I'm just a new customer who is very pleased with what I've seen so far.
