Object Identification in IBM iSeries application

Post by aumohanraj » Mon Jun 06, 2016 10:34 am

Hi,

I am trying to automate IBM iSeries application using ranorex. But when i do the recording, ranorex could not able to identify the iSeries objects. Instead it identify the terminal emulator object and pass the keys to it. Hence i could not able to place my cursor on particular object in emulator.

Is there any support/add in available for iSeries automation with ranorex?

thanks,
Mohanraj Kesavan

Hi Mohanraj,

Ranorex is a Windows-based test automation tool, with additional support for Android and iOS apps. I don't know IBM iSeries apps, but if they cannot be run on windows, you are most probably out of luck with automating them.

Please add these details to your questions:

  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration

Hi,

Finally i found the answer. Ranorex does not have the support for identifying IBM iSeries application objects.
But as i work around,

1. we can do the automation by image based recording.
2. We can do the validation by using windows clipboard feature.

Thanks,
