Need help with few general questions.

Post by VamsiN » Fri Oct 10, 2014 11:14 am

Hello,

I am trying to understand if Ranorex will be ideal for our needs. Your response will be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

We have an automation lab having multiple systems each of which have a QTP node license. So, every time we need to run a full regression (mostly monthly), we create a batch (test suite) of multiple scripts in each system & execute them.

However, we do not place the scripts, test data or the object repositories on each of the system, we use a shared repository (folder) where we place all our scripts, object repositories & test data & this location is accessible to all the systems in our automation lab. So, when ever a test is triggered on any system, the associated scripts, test data & object repositories are read from this shared location & the scripts are executed on the remote systems & results posted to the database from where we access & review them.

Now my questions:

1. Should we buy Ranorex Studio licenses for each of the system we use for execution (like we did for QTP)? Or, is it sufficient if we buy few Ranorex Studio license for our development needs & can go with Ranorex Runtime licenses for the remaining systems?
2. Can we place the scripts, test data & object repositories on a shared location like we did for QTP & have Ranorex Studio/Runtime tools on each system access them?
3. Do we need to manually creates batches (test suites) on each of the systems (again like we are currently doing for QTP) or do we have any inbuilt feature in Ranorex through which this can be centralized & controlled from a single system?

Thanks.

Hello VamsiN,

Please find the answers to your questions below.
1. Should we buy Ranorex Studio licenses for each of the system we use for execution (like we did for QTP)? Or, is it sufficient if we buy few Ranorex Studio license for our development needs & can go with Ranorex Runtime licenses for the remaining systems?
Yes correct, you only need a Premium License for your development needs. For the execution only a Runtime license is required.
A detailed description about our license types can be found at the section Editions & Pricing on our website.
2. Can we place the scripts, test data & object repositories on a shared location like we did for QTP & have Ranorex Studio/Runtime tools on each system access them?
In order to do that I would recommend a Continuous Integration tool as described in the blog Integration on our website.
3. Do we need to manually creates batches (test suites) on each of the systems (again like we are currently doing for QTP) or do we have any inbuilt feature in Ranorex through which this can be centralized & controlled from a single system?
As mentioned above I would also recommend to read the section Integration blog on our website.

In order to get more information I would recommend to send an e-mail to [email protected].
My colleagues will be happy to answer all your questions.

Regards,
Bernhard
