2 way automation

Post by andrewpowell98 » Tue Jan 12, 2016 3:17 pm

Hi there
I am looking at automation tools and ranorex is a tool I keep comming back too as it has been very easy to use. However I have a question, I am looking at testing 2 way interaction similar to a messenger type conversation where 2 computer systems are talking to each other, e.g Android browser sends messages to windows UI system.
Is this possible?
What I was looking at was launching the app on 2 systems and allow the 2 seperate computers to talk to each other. Is it possible to use Ranorex this way?

Hi Andrew,

Basically, it is not out of the box possible to automate a synchronized Ranorex test between two computers.

Since Ranorex is based on the .NET framework you can of course write your own C# or VB.NET User Code to interact with the second computer to achieve what you are looking for.
