some questions regarding 1.5

Post by jasong » Tue Jun 03, 2008 4:55 pm

First, is Ranorex Studio going to be the fourth product available thus yielding the free, pro, premium and studio products?

Next, what exactly is 'Resource based GUI mapping'?

Finally, is there any plan to support Python exceptions in the future? This would greatly increase the power and maintainability of Python scripts and assuming different types of exceptions allow for many choices in handling action failures.

Thank you,
Jason

No, Ranorex Studio will be part of the Premium Version in V1.5.
You (and every Premium user) will get Ranorex Studio automatically with the next Ranorex Version V1.5.

Next, what exactly is 'Resource based GUI mapping'?
The main target of a resource based mapping is to store identification information of UI elements within one single file/location. In short, with RanoreXPath you're able to define your GUI objects to test within one single file. Changes in your application under test would cause changes in your testautomation code too. To maintain one single file would be much easier, than updating identification paths in every source file directly.

Currently RanoreXPath is only available with the Ranorex WebTest feature. In future (Ranorex V2.0) the RanoreXPath search mechanism is also available for standard UI elements (Win32, .NET, ...).

Exceptions for Python are currently supported only when using Python for .NET to access the RanorexNet API (read this blog for more info).
