Test application domain support
IBM Rational Functional Tester is an object-oriented automated testing tool that tests Windows , .NET, Java , HTML, Siebel, SAP, AJAX, PowerBuilder, Flex, Dojo, Visual Basic and GEF applications. You can also test Adobe PDF documents, and zSeries , iSeries , and pSeries applications.
- Adobe PDF documents support
IBM IBM Rational Functional Tester supports testing of Adobe PDF 7.0 and 8.0 read-only documents. You can test PDF documents that are displayed in a browser or in a stand-alone PDF Reader. A functional test script that is recorded for documents that are displayed in a stand-alone PDF Reader can be played back when the document is displayed in a browser and vice-versa.
- AJAX support
IBM Rational Functional Tester supports testing AJAX-based Web applications.
- Application Response Measurement support
The Application Response Measurement (ARM) standard helps measure the end-to-end transaction performance of an application, including service levels and response time. IBM Rational Functional Tester uses the response time breakdown to view the statistics that is captured while running a test.
- Dojo support
IBM Rational Functional Tester supports testing HTML applications that contain Dojo controls on Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0, 7.0, 8.0 and Mozilla Firefox 2.x, 3.0, 3.5 and 3.6 browsers. Improved performance in recording is seen in Firefox 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 browsers. You can test applications that are developed using Dojo Toolkit version 1.0 , version 1.1, version 1.2, version 1.3.2, and version 1.4.2.
- Eclipse support
IBM Rational Functional Tester support testing of applications based on Eclipse 3.0.x, 3.1.x, 3.2.x, 3.3.x, 3.4.x and 3.5.x.
- Flex support
IBM Rational Functional Tester supports testing functional aspects of Adobe Flex applications. You can record and playback scripts against Flex-based user interfaces inside a Web browser and verify that the application functions correctly.
- GEF support
Rational Functional Tester allows testing the functionality of GEF objects that are implemented using standard GEF editors and non-standard GEF editors. GEF editor is based on Eclipse Modelling Framework (EMF) that provides many features for manipulating models. GEF displays a model graphically, employs MVC (model-view-controller) architecture and aids user interaction with that model.
- HTML support
Functional Tester can test HTML pages loaded into the browsers that run on Windows and Linux .
- Java support
This functional testing application supports the following Java versions for testing Java applications and HTML applications with applets.
- .NET support
IBM Rational Functional Tester supports recording and playing back user applications built using .NET Framework 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 or 4.0. You can also test Win32 applications that contain .NET controls.
- Windows support
IBM Rational Functional Tester supports testing of Windows applications with Win32 controls.
- Nested domains support
Functional Tester recognizes two different kinds of nesting of objects, a parent-child nesting and an owner-owned nesting. A parent-child nesting occurs when one object is contained within another, such as a button on a form. An owner-owned nesting occurs when the owned object has its own top-level window, such as a dialog box that is owned by a top-level window.
- PowerBuilder support
IBM Rational Functional Tester supports testing .Net applications and Win32 applications that are created using Sybase PowerBuilder versions 10.5, 11.0, 11.2, 11.5 and 12.0.
- SAP support
IBM Rational Functional Tester supports extended functional testing on SAP GUI controls for Windows and HTML (mySAP). This allows Rational Functional Tester to test the functional aspects of an application built using the SAP framework.
- SAP NetWeaver Enterprises
IBM Rational Functional Tester supports testing HTML applications that contain WebDynPro controls on Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 , 7 browsers. You can test applications that are developed using SAP WebDynPro framework and accessed through SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Portal Client 7.0 (2004s).
- Siebel support
IBM Rational Functional Tester contains extended functional testing support for Siebel applications.
- Visual Basic support
IBM Rational Functional Tester supports testing Visual Basic 5.0 and 6.0 applications.
- Terminal-based applications support
Rational Functional Tester Extension for Terminal-based Applications supports functional testing of Mainframe or zSeries (TN3270, TN3270E), AS/400 or iSeries (TN5250) and pSeries or Virtual Terminals (VT default, VT100, VT420-7, VT420-8, VT UTF-8).
