  9. 9. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation Feature Walkthrough Record & Playback
  10. 10. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 10 - Automated Recording  Rapise provides a powerful automated test recorder that captures your interactions with the application being tested and uses that to build a reusable object repository and automated test script.  With its extensive set of libraries, Rapise will automate your web, mobile and desktop testing including hybrid applications.
  11. 11. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 11 - Scriptless vs. JavaScript  Rapise comes with an easy to use, highly-intuitive scriptless test authoring language called RVL. This lets testers that are domain experts and not programmers use Rapise to write tests.  For more technically proficient users, Rapise has a full JavaScript IDE to write tests. You can even mix RVL and JavaScript.
  12. 12. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 12 - Intelligent Playback  When you record a test, Rapise translates your actions into a script. When you playback the test, the script is executed.  Tests can be either played-back through the Rapise user interface, directly from the command-line, or from a test management system such as SpiraTest.
  13. 13. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 13 - Test Validation  Rapise lets you add verification points to your test scripts so that you can make sure your tests are producing the expected results and behavior during testing.  You can add verification points during recording or manually after the fact using the IDE.
  14. 14. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 14 - Learn and Go™ Recording  Rapise's unique Learn and Go testing method is much more time efficient than traditional record-and-playback processes.  Objects are edited during the learning process instead of waiting for all objects to be recorded then edited.  Faster, more complete test script generation and automatic script updates significantly reduces testing time and gets your application to market faster.
  15. 15. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 15 - Cross Browser Testing  Rapise is purpose-built for cross-browser testing, supporting multiple versions of IE, Edge, Firefox Chrome, Safari and Opera.  With Rapise you can your test web applications in all of the most widely used browsers. Create one test script and execute the same script without modification across the major browsers.
  16. 16. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 16 - Powerful Reporting  Rapise comes with powerful and flexible reporting capabilities that allow you to quickly see the results of your testing activities.  You can event customize the data being reported by adding instructions within your test script.  Report Filtering lets you specify criteria to filter your view of the test execution report. Rows that do not match your criteria are hidden.
  17. 17. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 17 - Analog Recording  In instances where an application is not well suited to object-based test automation (for instance a graphics application such as MS Paint), Rapise provides analog recording as a fallback solution.  With analog recording, Rapise can take even the worst-case situation and allow you to automate it.
  18. 18. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 18 - Exploratory & Manual Testing  In addition to its world class automation functionality, Rapise brings the power of automation to your manual and exploratory testing.  No more laborious creation of test cases and test steps.

  20. 20. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 20 - Powerful Object Manager  One of the most important tasks in test automation is keeping the test scripts current with changes in the application.  With the adoption of Agile methodologies, the need to be able to adjust the test scripts to account for refactoring is critical.  Rapise's powerful object manager ensures that changes in the application can be handled without any script rewrites.
  21. 21. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 21 - Drag & Drop IDE  Rapise scripts are written in JavaScript (Microsoft JScript).  You can run and debug your script using the full featured integrated JavaScript Editor and Debugger.  Rapise includes a testing API, with methods for manipulating images, spreadsheets, common GUI widgets, and more.
  22. 22. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 22 - Data-Driven Testing  Data-Driven Testing (DDT) is the creation of test scripts to run together with their related data sets in a framework. The framework provides re-usable test logic to reduce maintenance and improve test coverage.  Rapise provides powerful support for DDT with the ability to load in sets of test data from either an Excel spreadsheet or relational database
  23. 23. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 23 - Optical Character Recognition  Sometimes you need to get a text written inside a GUI control or find a place on the screen that contains a given text.  It is not always possible to solve this task using objects natively supported by Rapise or Simulated Objects.  In this case Optical Character Recognition (OCR) may help.
  24. 24. © Copyright 2006-2017, Inflectra Corporation - 24 - Hybrid Application Testing  Applications are not always written using a single technology, so Rapise has been design to test such hybrid applications.  Using a single test script, Rapise can test applications that use multiple different technologies seamlessly.
