10 Best Practices in Test Automation

Ensure Maximum Test Coverage

Simultaneously run desktop tests remotely in different environments with Ranorex Remote.

Use your time to the fullest by distributing tests to remote machines. Using the Ranorex Remote feature in Ranorex Studio, you can simultaneously test your desktop application in multiple environments – using different system configurations, versions of the application under test, operating systems, and many more. You can continue working on your local machine in the meantime and will receive an automatic notification once a test has been executed and its report is ready. Ranorex Remote is also great for working in teams. Users within a network can access and deploy tests to the same agents, as well as receive all test reports from the remote machines to keep track of the project status and performance.

Deliver the High Quality Your Customers Demand

Perform regression testing to ensure updates to the system do not break existing functionality.

It’s a fact that every modification or addition to existing and previously-tested code may introduce defects to the system – also called regressions. By integrating automated testing into your nightly CI builds, or running automated regression tests before every release, you can automatically verify the functionality of existing software with every build. Automating these time-intensive and repetitive tests counteracts constraints in resources, shortens release cycles, and increases efficiency, which ultimately leads to a higher ROI.

Seamless Integration in Your Existing Ecosystem

Accelerate productivity and continue using the tools you already work with.

Enable your team to deliver the results your customers expect and get the competitive advantage needed in today’s software market. Integrated automated testing increases visibility and speeds up the development lifecycle – empowering you to deliver high-quality desktop apps faster. You can easily integrate Ranorex Studio in your testing and development environment to continue working with tools you are already familiar.

Ranorex projects with their lightweight executable files and their JUnit compatible reports can be easily integrated with CI systems, popular issue tracking and test management tools such as Team Foundation Server and Jira, version control systems SVN or Git, and many more. You can also tailor functional testing capabilities to fit your individual automation needs, by combining it with other tools, such as the load and performance testing tool NeoLoad or the test management tool TestRail.

Why Use Ranorex Studio for Automated Desktop Testing

Ranorex Studio’s intuitive and powerful functional testing capabilities enable teams of developers and testers to efficiently and effectively automate testing of any type of Windows desktop application. Script-free and code-based functional test automation tools with complementary features ensure you and your team can meet software test automation goals, whether you are using a traditional or agile testing approach. Using Ranorex Studio, you will also benefit from:

  • Tools for different skills
    Efficiently create, run, and analyze automated tests with Ranorex Studio. Use the intuitive Ranorex Recorder to create application testing projects without writing a single line of code. Alternatively, you can also access the Ranorex core API to create tests entirely in C# or VB.NET, or enhance existing recordings in code.

  • Real user interaction simulation
    Using the capture & replay feature in Ranorex Studio, you can interact with your AUT just like an end user would. Without the need to code, you can effortlessly navigate through the user interface, click elements and fill out entire forms. All recorded steps are immediately ready for testing.

  • Instant validation
    Easily add validation steps as checkpoints to your automation projects to see if specific requirements are fulfilled. Ranorex Studio enables you to check a large number of control attributes and compare images as well as texts.

  • Data-driven testing
    Increase testing efficiency and coverage by making your desktop tests data-driven. Right out of the box, Ranorex Studio supports data connectors such as SQL, CSV, or Excel. You can use these external or internal data sources to loop over your test scenarios.

  • Comprehensive reporting
    Ranorex automation projects result in comprehensive, JUnit-compatible reports. Screenshots provide you with a detailed overview of the test execution flow. Keep team members updated on the project status by automatically sending the report via email.

  • All-in-one tool
    Ranorex Studio greatly reduces the effort to test applications across desktop, web and mobile platforms, against multiple browsers and operating systems. Once you have created a testing workflow, reuse it for different scenarios merely by changing a parameter.

Report and Analysis

Identify defects and debug tests with our fully customizable report.

Easily analyze test runs with an XML-based test run report that provides a comprehensive overview of the entire test execution flow. A test step has failed? Simply look at the screenshot in the report to easily retrace the failure, or view a recording of the test to determine what happened without having to re-run the test. Jump directly into a failed test step from the report. Generate performance analysis logs for each test to pinpoint which test actions consume the most time and resources and might need to be improved.

Customize the test run report to share and view it on machines without Ranorex Studio, or integrate the JUnit-compatible report into CI systems to enhance transparency and receive instant feedback.

Built for Cross-Functional Teams

Access the Ranorex core API from Visual Studio and enhance collaboration between developers and testers. Test automation is essential to both developers and testers – and so is collaboration in teams.

Right out of the box, a Ranorex test automation project consists of multiple layers, each designed for specific skills in cross-functional teams. While developers and technical testers can access the Ranorex core automation framework and script flexible automation elements, testers can create entire test cases without writing a single line of code, or reuse existing core modules.

Project owners and managers can then review test results and check the project progress using the comprehensive XML-based test report.

This way, regardless of the development methodology used, cross-functional teams can effectively collaborate on test automation projects.
