Java—Useful Information »

.NET—Useful Information »

Testing Applications that Use Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0

An application may use components that are built on different versions of the Microsoft .NET Framework. The default behavior of CLR version 1.1 and above is to unify usage of framework assemblies. The runtime version that is associated with an application determines which version of the Microsoft .NET Framework assemblies are used by the application and all of its components. For example, if an application is associated with version 1.1 of the Microsoft .NET Framework and uses the System.Data assembly, then version 1.1 of the System.Data assembly is loaded and shared across all components used by the application. If an application component refers to version 1.0 of the System.Data assembly, the reference is promoted at runtime to reference version 1.1.

The Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 does not perform unification by default. As a result, an application that uses components built with different Microsoft .NET frameworks may load different versions of the same assembly at runtime.

If you want to test applications that use NET Framework 1.0, you must apply binding redirection of framework assemblies (for version 1.0 only) at the machine level, as described below. Note that until you make the required configuration changes, testing applications based on the .NET Framework 1.0 may cause unexpected results.

To manually update the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 configuration after installing the .NET add-in:

  1. Log-in to your computer with administrator permissions.
  2. Open a Command Prompt (Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt).
  3. Type cd /d <QuickTest Professional installation path>\bin and press Enter to change the path to the QuickTest Professional bin folder.
  4. Type NetUpdateConfig /config and press Enter.
  5. This command performs the required changes in the machine.config file under the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 installation. The original file is saved as machine.config.bak.

Notes and Limitations

This section includes information and limitations about QuickTest Professional 9.5.

This section includes notes and limitations on the following topics (each sub-divided according to add-in):

General Issues

Java—General Issues »

Workaround: Before running your test or component, remove the extra step that was recorded.

Workaround: When testing with QuickTest Java support, do not use -Xincgc in your command line, or, alternatively, do not use the dynamic transformation support mechanism. For more information, refer to the HP QuickTest Professional Add-ins Guide.

Workaround: Use a string instead of the original type. For example, instead of 1, use "1". For example: y = JavaCheckBox("Active").WaitProperty ("enabled", "1", 1000)

Workaround: To instruct the Java Add-in record these actions, use the Setting.Java method to set the record_win_ops variable to 1. For example: Setting.Java("RECORD_WIN_OPS") = 1

Workaround: Use other verification methods (such as using GetTOProperty). For more details on verification methods, refer to the HP QuickTest Professional User's Guide.

Oracle—General Issues »

Workaround: Use the numeric index instead of the string as the argument value.

Workaround: Add an OracleTabbedRegion.Select method to the appropriate tab before any replay step on an object inside a tab which is inside another tab

Stingray Add-in—Setting Up Support for Stingray Objects »

QuickTest support for Stingray objects is based on an agent entity in the Stingray application that interacts with QuickTest to enable recording and running operations. There are two different modes for establishing this agent entity.

You set up support for Stingray objects using the Stingray Support Configuration Wizard. You can open the Stingray Support Configuration Wizard as the last step when running the setup application for the Stingray Add-in. The wizard walks you through the steps that are necessary to configure QuickTest to work according to the agent mode that you select and according to the versions of Stingray libraries in your application(s). If the wizard detects problems during the configuration procedure, note the warnings that are issued.

To reconfigure QuickTest Stingray support for different Stingray application versions, launch the wizard by selecting it from the QuickTest program group, or, in QuickTest, from the Stingray tab in the Options dialog box (Tools > Options).

Note for WinRunner Stingray Add-in users working in run-time agent mode: The version of the Stingray agent installed with the WinRunner Stingray Add-in may be different than the version of the Stingray agent installed with the QuickTest Professional Stingray Add-in. By default, if you load the WinRunner Stingray Add-in while QuickTest Professional is running—with or without the add-in loaded—unexpected QuickTest behavior can occur. (There is no restriction on having both add-ins installed on the same computer.)

If you want to work with the WinRunner Stingray Add-in and QuickTest simultaneously, for example, if you want to call a QuickTest test containing Stingray objects from WinRunner or vice versa, you must first ensure that WinRunner and QuickTest are both using the latest version of the Stingray agent. To do this, search for the Stgagent.dll file in <QuickTest installation folder>\bin\StingrayAgent\AgentDll\MFC<##>\OG<####_OT<####> and in <WinRunner installation folder>\arch. Then replace the earlier file with the later one.

For more information, refer to the Stingray section in the HP QuickTest Professional Object Model Reference (Help > QuickTest Professional Help > Object Model Reference).

Tip: A grid cell may display raw data or formatted data. The GetCellData method retrieves the raw data in the cell. To get the displayed (formatted) data, use the GetCellDisplayedData method.
