.rxtst file schema definitions

Post by pazra » Fri Jul 15, 2016 6:39 pm

Hi, I frequently get merge issues with Ranorex .rxtst files, partly due to our setup in our version control software. Our team codes in two versions (e.g. a major and minor release), and merge our code changes from minor to major. Automation test development occurs in both minor and major versions, but merges only occur from minor to major. These merges cause issues with the .rxtst files, where the xml is either bad or dupe xml nodes are created. These issues cause the .rxtst file to error when trying to open a project in Ranorex studio.

I am working on a program to help me validate the .rxtst file's xml. Is it possible to get the xml definition for .rxtst files?

So I discovered that Visual Studio comes with a tool to create the .xsd file. If you open an xml file in Visual Studio, an XML toolbar option will appear. Click 'Create Schema' under that menu. More instructions can be found here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms255829.aspx

I was able to create schema definition file for .rxtst files, and used that to help validate my .rxtst files.
