Does Ranorex Support test execution in Android &iOS parallel

Post by aravin » Thu May 14, 2015 8:10 am

Hi,

Consider I have same application for two viewers (say iOS and Android).
Like Flipkart app for Android & Flipkart app for iOS.
Can we run same testcase on both the app at same time using Ranorex?

Ranorex Version: 5.3.2
System OS: Windows7
iOS: Writting in Objective C (Hybird app).
Android: Hybird app.

Ranorex is not designed to run any parallel tests from a single instance of a Ranorex test.

In my opinion you should not even attempt it as there could be unknown side-effects.

The best approach is the have multiple systems available for testing or to test one thing at a time on a single system.

Ranorex is a functional UI testing tool and as such should not be used for distributed or concurrent testing from the same system. There are other tools (like Jenkins or Bamboo) that will enable concurrent running of tests, but Ranorex only runs one at a time.
Shortcuts usually aren't...
