Ranorex 6.2 Released

Dec 7, 2016 | Announcements, Product Insights

Ranorex 6.2

We’re excited to announce that Ranorex 6.2 is ready for you to download! In this release, we’ve focused on providing you with an advanced technology support for desktop and mobile applications as well as on making it easier for teams with mixed skills to collaborate on test automation projects.

Advanced Technology Support

We’ve made the support of innovative technologies a priority and now enable testing of Chromium-based frameworks in desktop apps and WKWebView objects in iOS apps.

Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) support

CEF is one of the most frequently used frameworks for embedding web content in desktop applications. Next to Google’s native CEF implementation, we now also support testing of these Chromium-based frameworks:

  • CefSharp
  • Electron
  • NW.Js
  • Qt WebEngine

WKWebView support

The WKWebView class enables you to embed interactive web content in your iOS mobile applications. Using Ranorex 6.2, you can now test your embedded WKWebView objects.

User Code Library

Sometimes, you need to add further functionality to your tests with user code. We understand that in a team with mixed skills, not everyone wants to code. That’s why we’ve introduced the user code library with Ranorex 6.2. It gives you direct access to the user code methods your colleagues have previously created in a test automation solution, so you can add additional functionality to your tests without writing a single line of code.

A quick overview of the workflow:

If you’re a developer or tester with programming skills, you can start by filling the user code library with user code methods. You can logically organize methods that relate to a specific workflow or application area. A tip: Add a description to each method. This makes it easier for your colleagues to find the right user code method .

As a tester in your team, you can directly access the library from the action table and select a method from there to use it as an action. This way, you can add further functionality to your tests without having to dip into code!

We hope you have as much fun using this update as we’ve had creating it!
