Executing one test on several browsers

Post by Joppen » Wed Aug 18, 2010 7:25 am

Hi,

I did recently get my hands on your trial version and have a question.

As I am testing your product on a web application i will run tests on several different browsers. My question is: Is there a way to run recorded test on several browsers without having to record a test for each browser?

This is very critical for me as if I have to record a test for each browser this will potentially quadruple the amount of tests I need to create.

Hi,

The Ranorex Web Plug-ins (for Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox) allow you to test the UI of web applications in the same way you would automate standard desktop applications.
Creating tests for Firefox does not differ to creating tests for Internet Explorer. All web UI elements are specified through RxPath, which uses HTML attributes and values for identification. For this reason a single web repository can be used for testing both types of web browsers.

Please, take a look at the Ranorex WebTestSample!

Excellent! That was exactly what I was looking for.

Are there any plans on adding support for Chrome and Safari?

Hi,

Chrome and Safari is on our roadmap. This two browser will be available in a future release of Ranorex, but I cannot tell you an exact date when this will be.
