CSV Connector and Application Version Change

Post by Jenny » Fri Apr 29, 2016 10:23 pm

Hi,

I have a TestSuite that contains a testcase with three test scripts. In one of the scripts I have attached CSV file using CSV data connector and then made data binding and the rest of the scripts are data driven type. I have NOT made the connection programmatically. This test Suite I created on Application Version1. If my application version changed to Version2, Will I be able to get to run the same test suite and it's scripts without fail? Does the CSV data source connection get lost if the application version changes to a newer one?

Thanks
Jenny

Hi Jenny,

The Ranorex data connector is completely independent from your AUT version. However, the success or failure of your tests running on different AUT version, depends on the fact, how version-independent is your repository and reference data in data connector.

The most common mistake many people do is recording test case steps without further 'cleaning' and optimizing of stored repo elements, which may contain version number strings. Eventually, some GUI strings may differ between the AUT versions. So once you finish with designing your tests on one version, check the repository/data connectors and do necessary changes to make them version independent.
