Overview of WinRunner - Testing Tools

Mercury Interactive's WinRunner is a testing tool to do functional/regression testing. Using WinRunner, you can record GUI operations. While recording, WinRunner automatically creates a test script. This test script can be run automatically later on for carrying out unattended testing. The important aspects of WinRunner are:

  • You can do functional/regression testing of a variety of application software written in programming languages such as PowerBuilder, Visual Basic, C/C++, and Java. You can also carry out the testing on ERP/CRM software packages.
  • You can do the testing in all flavors of Windows operating systems and different browser environments such as Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator.
  • You can record the GUI operations in the 'record' mode. WinRunner automatically creates a tesi script. This test can be modified if required and can be executed later on in unattendaAmode. The recovery manager enables the application to be brought to a known state in case there is a problem during the unattended testing. Rapid Test Script Wizard creates the test scripts automatically.
  • You can add checkpoints to compare actual and expected results. The checkpoints can be GUI checkpoints, bitmap checkpoints and web links.
  • It provides a facility for synchronization of test cases.
  • Data Driver Wizard provides the facility to convert a recorded test into a data driven test. So, you c*i replace data with variables within a test script. For example, you can test a login process by taking the input for username and password fields from a database.
  • Database checkpoints are used to verify data in a database during automated testing. The records that are inserted, deleted, modified, or updated will be highlighted so that you can ensure database integrity and transaction accuracy.
  • The Virtual Object Wizard of WinRunner is used to teach WinRunner to recognize, record, and replay custom objects.
  • The reporting tools provide the facility to generate automatically the test reports and analyze the defects.
  • WinRunner can be integrated with the testing management tool TestDirector to automate many of the activities in the testing process.
