Maintaining a test object map

To maintain a test object map, you update it to reflect new versions of the application by accepting new objects on the map, unifying test objects that are similar, and deleting any obsolete test objects.

To maintain a test object map:


Procedure

  1. Accept New objects on the map. Click Test Object > Accept or Test Object > Accept All on the Functional Tester menu. The New state of the selected test object is removed.

  2. Unify test objects that are similar, taking from each the properties for the new object. Resolve references to the old objects, so that scripts that contain the old objects continue to work. Functional Tester can update these references, but you may need to check out script files.

  3. Delete any obsolete test objects.
