Ranorex 6.2 Released

Ranorex.com: Latest News - Wed, 12/07/2016 - 12:29

We’re excited to announce that Ranorex 6.2 is ready for you to download! In this release, we’ve focused on providing you with an advanced technology support for desktop and mobile applications as well as on making it easier for teams with mixed skills to collaborate on test automation projects.

Advanced Technology Support

We’ve made the support of innovative technologies a priority and now enable testing of Chromium-based frameworks in desktop apps and WKWebView objects in iOS apps.

Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) support

CEF is one of the most frequently used frameworks for embedding web content in desktop applications. Next to Google’s native CEF implementation, we now also support testing of these Chromium-based frameworks:

  • CefSharp
  • Electron
  • NW.Js
  • Qt WebEngine

Find out more about the CEF support

WKWebView support

The WKWebView class enables you to embed interactive web content in your iOS mobile applications. Using Ranorex 6.2, you can now test your embedded WKWebView objects.

User Code Library

Sometimes, you need to add further functionality to your tests with user code. We understand that in a team with mixed skills, not everyone wants to code. That’s why we’ve introduced the user code library with Ranorex 6.2. It gives you direct access to the user code methods your colleagues have previously created in a test automation solution, so you can add additional functionality to your tests without writing a single line of code.

A quick overview of the workflow:

If you’re a developer or tester with programming skills, you can start by filling the user code library with user code methods. You can logically organize methods that relate to a specific workflow or application area. A tip: Add a description to each method. This makes it easier for your colleagues to find the right user code method .

As a tester in your team, you can directly access the library from the action table and select a method from there to use it as an action. This way, you can add further functionality to your tests without having to dip into code!

Find out more about the user code library

We hope you have as much fun using this update as we’ve had creating it!

Seapine Software Launches TestTrack 2015 Featuring Interactive Task Boards

Seapine Software Press Releases - Wed, 12/10/2014 - 08:00

Version 2015 promotes collaboration, delivers new organization and data visualization features.

[CINCINNATI, OH December 10, 2014] Seapine Software, a leading provider of process centric product development solutions, has launched TestTrack 2015, the latest release of its core product development management solution. Interactive task boards, which enable real time project visibility, take center stage in this release.

“Unique to TestTrack 2015, and the market in general, is the combination of rich drag and drop task board functionality with an incredibly powerful workflow engine. This enables TestTrack to support agile practices, including in safety critical compliant environments that require electronic signatures at key state changes,” said Rick Riccetti, President and CEO of Seapine Software. “So, behind the simplicity of the task board is a flexible workflow engine that can enforce the most arduous processes. Artifact traceability, a key strength of TestTrack, is also created and maintained while working with cards, which is important to many of our customers.”

TestTrack 2015 features task boards to help development teams communicate and measure progress during a sprint, release, or other milestone. With task boards teams can:

  • Organize and visualize work with cards, columns, and swimlanes
  • Plan and collaborate during stand ups, retrospectives, issue, triage, and other team meetings
  • Gain real time visibility into work at the project, sprint, and user level

"It's important to note we have not replaced the ability to work with development artifacts in list views, which is necessary to quickly manage large amounts of project information. Users can easily switch between list views and task board views in one click, based on their work context," added Riccetti.

Additional updates in TestTrack 2015 include Matrix report enhancements for a quick view of end to end traceability from issues to source code, new sample projects to help users jump start agile projects, and help file improvements.
