Work with functional test scripts (Windows-only)
This section describes the process of creating functional test scripts to test your applications.
- Use script services
The Script Support Functions dialog box contains tabs that enable you to insert code into the current Functional Tester script to perform a variety of tasks, such as inserting a callScript command, a log message. a timer, a sleep command, or a comment into a Functional Tester script.
- Start your test applications
When recording tests on your application, it is best to have IBM IBM Rational Functional Tester start the application during recording. This makes playing back the tests more reliable because the application configuration information is used. IBM Rational Functional Tester can open specified Java applications, HTML pages in your browser, or run executable applications.
- Renaming a test asset
You can rename simplified test scripts, Java test scripts, test object maps, or other files in a project.
- Saving test scripts and files
You can save a functional test script or file in several ways: save the current test script or file, save all test scripts and files, save a functional test script or file with another name in a different location.
- Delete a functional test script
You can delete a functional test script from the Projects view or the Solution Explorer. Use caution, however; deleting a script that is not under ClearCase® source control or a script in a ClearCase dynamic view cannot be undone.
