Migrate/Move Coded UI Tests into Ranorex

Post by sneha pitambare » Mon Jul 08, 2019 3:38 pm


We have almost 450 test scripts written in Coded UI tool and we are looking at replacing Coded UI with Ranorex.

So could you please suggest whether it is feasible to migrate our coded UI tests into Ranorex with minimum changes.

I'm afraid, there is not an easy way to convert CodedUI tests to Ranorex tests. They are simply too different. If there are too many existing tests, I would personally keep them as they are, i.e. in CodedUI format and simply create new tests with Ranorex. By "new", I mean tests, which are not yet covered by existing CodedUI tests. The downside of this approach is, that you will have to keep and maintain two code bases, which may be a burden in a long term run ;) On the other hand, rewriting too many tests from Coded UI to Ranorex may take a lot of time, depending of the complexity of tests?
