Excellent product for Automation Testing

“I have great experience using Ascential Test, There are only few tools in the market which provides automation testing for power builder. I have found Ascential Test as best tool for power builder applications. Because, with other tools i had issues like recognition of object and they were too complicated to resolve for each of the object. But, with Ascential Test, it was much easier to find all objects and use them in my scripts. It saves a lot of time. Excellent support and compatibility with power builder objects.”

Very suitable program for automated testing of PowerBuilder applications

“Ascential Test is the most suitable program to test Powerbuilder applications. The basic tests are easy to compile in the editor, and with the help of scripts almost anything you want can be automated. The support from Zeenyx is excellent.”

What we liked most: The application has a logical structure and is fairly intuitive to use. Working with screenshots from which objects of the application can be collected for use in the test is very user-friendly. Although there are possibilities to always set up the interface optimally for a task, the many panels are often all used and so it is best to buy a large monitor. It is nice that all tests are in one single structured file. This also applies to all steps, objects, scripts, data and settings. In this way, an extensive set with a lot of tests and steps remains a well-organized whole. The files can be viewed and edited in the own script editor, but also in an editor such as Notepad ++, which is useful for example to look up something quickly. What I use a lot is the possibility to save values in a text file and read them again later. In this way, data can easily be passed on to a subsequent step or test. The help desk responds very quickly and adequately to questions and offers webinars where various practical matters are discussed.

Factors Considered:

Strong customer focus; Product functionality and performance
Other Solutions Considered: LEAPWORK; Ranorex; SmartBear

Reasons for Purchase:

Reasons for Purchase: Our applications are quite complex and contain a lot of configurable options so that the various customers can work well in their own country. Going through the basic flow for the regression test is an intensive job and it saves a lot of time if this can be done automatically.

Best Automated Testing Tool For Maintainability And Reusability.

“Overall, AscentialTest has been a fantastic automated tool, performing way better than any manual testing. The maintainability of test suites are super easy. Regressions take significantly fewer man-hours and UAT is much faster. We can conduct intensive performance testing, specifically volume and stress testing that was not possible before. Defect tracking has become much more streamlined.”

What we liked most: We appreciate that you don’t need to be a coder to use it. The snapshot feature to define app objects is incredibly helpful. However, the best thing is the maintainability. The ability to maintain is huge. If something changes in the app, only have to change it once within AscentialTest and it will update that object throughout the rest of the test. Also, enjoy their amazing customer service. Whenever there is an issue we are able to get on a call the same day and Zeenyx is always very patient and willing to help sort it out.

Discover AscentialTest®

AscentialTest is an automated testing tool, manual testing tool and test management tool. It is a productivity tool for software testing. AscentialTest provides a highly visual environment for developing manual and automated tests and managing the testing process.

Zeenyx understands that the cost of maintenance erodes the return on investment in test automation and has given it the highest priority in the product’s design. The step-based approach allows testers to create durable tests that are as easy to maintain as they are to create. By eliminating the need to build a costly test framework, AscentialTest reduces the level of effort, increases productivity and lowers the cost of software testing.

The Primary Components of AscentialTest®

How To: Automated Testing

Test frameworks are costly to build and maintain. Unlike keyword-driven testing, AscentialTest does not require the development of a test framework. AscentialTest is a productivity tool for software testing. It has been designed to lower the learning curve, reduce test creation time and minimize the level of effort to maintain tests. Instead of investing time in building frameworks, software testers can spend more time testing. AscentialTest provides a highly visual environment where test components are created using drag and drop in an easy 4 step process

Users point and click to capture Snapshots, which contain all of the data required to expose and organize application objects and attributes. Users define objects by dragging and dropping to the object repository.

  • Uniquely identify objects using a rich array of descriptors
  • Visually confirm object definitions
  • Reduce ‘noise’ by filtering out unwanted levels in the application hierarchy
  • Text and images are recognized as application objects
  • Powerful object recognition for complex objects like tables and grids
  • Table wizard guides definition of web table objects
  • ‘Selectors’ provide easy interaction with objects in tables and lists
  • Capture list of values from dropdowns, listboxes and other list-based controls
  • Capture and compare image-based application components
  • Refactor project automatically when renaming objects
  • Locate object references throughout the project
  • Build Snapshot series to storyboard test transactions
  • Create object classes to define objects that display on multiple pages
  • Special object recognition for PowerBuilder, dotNet (Windforms and WPF) and PDF
  • Special object recognition for Java and Terminals (5250 and 3270)

AscentialTest marries the usability of a recorder with the strength of script-based testing. Reusable steps are created by point and click. Actions are automatically generated by interacting with Snapshots.

  • Visually build steps in drag and drop interface
  • Generate input and verification actions
  • Parameterize steps with the touch of a button to make them reusable
  • Drag flow control and conditional statements from the ‘Actions Explorer’
  • Test data objects automatically generated
  • Data types are automatically handled by AscentialTest
  • Access interfaces to DLLs, database, xml and the operating system
  • Powerful scripting language available for users with scripting experience
  • Run individual steps out of context to aid in debugging
  • Build steps from Snapshots even when offline to the target application
  • Steps are organized in a library that can be organized by user-defined groups
  • Refactor project automatically when renaming steps or step parameters

Reusable tests are built by dragging and dropping steps. AscentialTest automatically generates data tables and binds to the data fields of the test. As the library of steps grows, the pace of building new tests accelerates. The most important benefit of the Step-Based approach is not realized until the target application changes over time. When the target application changes, only the impacted steps need to be modified. All the tests that use those steps are automatically updated. This not only saves time and resources, it assures that tests are ready when you need them.

  • Create tests by dragging and dropping re-usable steps
  • Data tables generated with fields in the correct data type
  • Pass parameters between steps or access shared parameters
  • Build cross-browser tests without need for modifications
  • Access built-in startup and error recovery
  • Refactor project automatically when renaming tests or test parameters
  • Tests kept up to date automatically as reusable steps are modified
  • Tests can be ported to multiple languages at a fraction of the time required with other tools
  • Combine manual and automated steps

Data tables are automatically generated by AscentialTest based on test input fields. Data tables offer significant advantages over spreadsheets for maintaining test data. Instead of storing only strings, AscentialTest data tables store data in the type that is required by test actions including complex lists and records. Users can automatically generate data tables from tests or build them visually using a specialized editor. All the user has to do is provide the test data.

  • Data fields are generated in the type expected by the test
  • Pick lists reduce input errors and save time inputting test data
  • Data tables can contain complex data structures including lists and records
  • Import test data from .csv
  • Special encrypted data parameters available for passwords and other sensitive data
  • Data can be designed to be reused by multiple tests
  • Standalone applet available for editing test data
  • Random data generation available
  • Easy access to ODBC databases, ASCII, XML and INI files

How To: Manual Testing

AscentialTest provides a unique way to create and execute manual tests. Manual tests are developed by combining and organizing re-usable steps by drag and drop. At test execution time, the tester is prompted with instructions for each step and provided a way to capture outputs, notes, images and attachments. Results are stored along with automated test results, making it easy to generate comprehensive reports. AscentialTest provides a highly visual environment where test components are created using drag and drop in an easy 4 step process

Build reusable steps to reduce test maintenance when the target application changes in the future.

  • Parameterize steps with the touch of a button to make them reusable
  • Drag flow control and conditional statements from the ‘Actions Explorer’
  • Steps are organized in a library that can be organized by user-defined groups
  • Refactor project automatically when renaming steps or step parameter

Reusable tests are built by dragging and dropping steps. AscentialTest automatically generates data tables and binds to the data fields of the test. As the library of steps grows, the pace of building new tests accelerates. The most important benefit of the Step-Based approach is not realized until the target application changes over time. When the target application changes, only the impacted steps need to be modified. All the tests that use those steps are automatically updated. This not only saves time and resources, it assures that tests are ready when you need them.

  • Create tests by dragging and dropping re-usable steps
  • Outputs captured in one step can be linked to input instructions of subsequent steps so        that the tester is provided with session specific data
  • Data lookups can be embedded within instructions so that the tester is provided with current and relevant test data. Significant time is saved searching for records and eliminating input errors due to out-of-date data
  • Data tables generated with fields in the correct data type
  • Pass parameters between steps or access shared parameters
  • Refactor project automatically when renaming tests or test parameters
  • Tests kept up to date automatically as reusable steps are modified
  • Combine manual and automated steps

  • Data can be designed to be reused by multiple tests
  • Standalone applet available for editing test data
  • Random data generation available
  • Easy access to ODBC databases, ASCII, XML and INI files

The manual test prompter invokes on the tester’s computer and provides instructions along with the ability to capture outputs, notes and attachments.

  • Application images can be captured during execution for display in test results or defect reports
  • Test results including date/time, tester and executed actions are recorded for audit or regulatory review
  • AscentialTest Manual Test Edition can be purchased separately as a standalone solution for manual-only testing

How To: Application Lifecycle Management

AscentialTest is designed to make it easy to manage test plans, test data, manual and automated tests, test results and metrics. It supports collaborations and integrates easily with version control, defect tracking and continuous delivery solutions.

The Test Plan Editor is a planning tool used to describe test requirements in outline, list or scenario form. It provides links to manual and automated tests and to test data stored in built-in data tables.

  • Link tests to plans via drag and drop
  • Link test requirements with test data by point and click
  • Test plan attributes provide the ability to locate tests using a powerful query tool
  • Automatically generate test plans from test data tables
  • Specify number of iterations to repeat tests n times
  • Group test plans into suites for execution
Test Execution Management 2

AscentialTest is integrated with Jira for defect tracking to provide a way to manage the relationship between test results and defects. (Figure 1)

Failures can be associated with defects so that testers will be notified when defects have been fixed and ready for re-testing. (Figure 2)

  • Create a defect
  • Assign a test to a defect
  • Get prompted to create defects for failed tests
  • Check the current status of a defect
  • Get prompted to re-run tests as defects are fixed
  • Get prompted to close defects for ‘passed’ tests
  • Access a defect to modify status and details
Figure 1:
Figure 2:

AscentialTest offers several collaboration features by integrating seamlessly with other software development tools. By integrating with version control systems like Subversion (SVN), large teams can contribute to the test development effort. Integration with GIT and TFS will also be offered in the near future.

  • Check out/check in components to SVN repository
  • Merge files with integrated merge utility
  • Review project history
  • Restore to previous revision
Version Control

Test Sets provide test execution management and reporting. A Test Set may be created for a build, a sprint, a test cycle or a project, depending upon how your organization tests and delivers software. Test Sets help manage test results.

  • Combine automated and manual tests within a Test Set
  • Manage test results in a centralized database
  • Indicate and specify reasons for blocked and failed tests
  • Annotate Test Set to explain test results
  • Generate and export reports to PDF, HTML, EXCEL, RTF, TXT or TIF formats
  • Email results automatically
  • View real-time results in web portal
  • Attach documents of any type to results
  • Execute tests locally, remotely or on multiple machines

What Makes Our Software Better

Why our software is so easy to learn, easy to use, easy to maintain.

Object Recognition

AscentialTest recognizes application elements regardless of complexity without coding hacks or reliance on fragile OCR

Why it’s Important

Object recognition is the foundation of GUI test automation. Object-action based tests rely on stable definitions of all application elements especially complex tables and grids.

How We Address It

The patented AscentialTest Snapshot displays a document-object-model that enables stable recognition of all application elements regardless of their relative position in the object hierarchy.

How Others Do It

Other tools recognize each object by its full path in the object hierarchy. Future changes in the target application GUI will break object definitions requiring changes to path/locator to resolve recognition problems.

Why Our Approach is Better

Changes in object hierarchy in the future have no impact on object recognition whatsoever.

Drag & Drop

Creating tests with our drag & drop editors is faster and more efficient than recording or scripting

Why it’s Important

Testing productivity is about time, cost and level of effort to develop and maintain tests utilizing the skills of the existing test team.

How We Address It

The patented AscentialTest snapshot provides a way to generate object definitions and object-actions by dragging and dropping. The AscentialTest UI is designed so that project components are within easy reach to enable drag & drop to build tests from reusable steps, to bind test data to tests and to bind tests to test plans.

How Others Do It

Tools that rely on recorders to generate object-actions look great in a demo but when you actually try to use one, you find out that the recording requires a lot of time-consuming editing, requiring a long chain of user actions to select values from dialogs loaded with text fields and dropdowns. Other test solutions that rely on scripting require special skill sets and long learning curves.

Why Our Approach is Better

Building test automation through Drag & Drop reduces the learning curve, does not require a specialized skill set and provides the fastest, most efficient way to build robust automated tests.

Video will show D&D quickly through the entire process of defining objects, creating a step and parameterizing it, building test, binding a data table, binding to a plan and building a test set.

No More Frameworks

Stop creating test frameworks and focus on your testing

Why it’s Important

Time should be focused on building tests that validate the target application, not on test frameworks which can take weeks or months to build.

How We Address It

Based upon information captured from the target application along with our class library, AscentialTest automatically builds pre-test and post-test actions as part of the Test Class from which every test inherits. Users can add actions to customize for the target application.

How Others Do It

Other solutions require a framework to be developed and then implemented for each test.

Why Our Approach is Better

The AscentialTest Test Class ensures that every test is independent, starting and stopping from known ‘base states’, so that a failure in a test will not produce a domino effect where all subsequent tests fail.

Video will show how appstate is automatically generate and how OnFinish is configured with Close Windows function.

Test Management

Testing projects can get messy without good management tools

Why it’s Important

Over time, testing projects might contain thousands or tens of thousands of tests. Good management tools are needed to keep track of test components, provide a way to locate those components and integrate the pieces together seamlessly.

How We Address It

AscentialTest includes all the test management features that you need to inventory, track and integrate steps, tests, test plans and test data tables.

How Others Do It

Most other testing solutions require the purchase of additional tools that are either part of suite or from third parties where integration is cumbersome.

Why Our Approach is Better

Built-in test management increases productivity by speeding up the process of building and executing tests which reduces the duration of test cycles and increases the probability of meeting project target dates.

Watch Test Management Quick Demo

Integrations

Testing productivity involves meaningful integration with collaboration tools

Why it’s Important

Testing tools don’t exist in a vacuum. The ability to interface smoothly with version control, defect tracking and continuous integration impacts tester productivity.

How We Address It

AscentialTest integration for version control and defect tracking is built right into the User Interface. Users can acquire locks and commit changes from the Project Explorer. Changes in defect status automatically mark tests to be run when bugs are fixed. Plug-ins are available for popular CI tools.

How Others Do It

These features are lacking in most testing tools. Other solutions provide lose integration with collaboration tools often using the Windows File Manager.

Why Our Approach is Better

Productivity is increased when users can access integration with collaboration features from within AscentialTest.

Video will demonstrate lock and commit with Subversion integration and Mark tests by change in status from Jira integration.

Complex Objects

Let AscentialTest do the heavy-lifting when it comes to tables, grids and trees

Why it’s Important

Complex objects like tables, grids and trees exist in most target applications. Recognizing rows, columns and elements contained in cells is imperative. Likewise the ability to locate a row even when scrolled out of view is a basic requirement.

How We Address It

The AscentialTest class library contains in-built intelligence regarding the structure and behavior of the table family of elements. Whether the target application is DotNet, PowerBuilder, Terminal or Web, AscentialTest recognizes all of the element components. A unique action called a ‘selector’ locates a row by searching the table and finding a specified value.

How Others Do It

Other solutions require some combination of OCR, image recognition or a lot of coding in order to make sense of a complex object and interface with it at the row and column level.

Why Our Approach is Better

The AscentialTest table interface allows users to select, input or edit rows in complex objects using drag & drop as seamlessly as interfacing with a simple edit field without any coding.

Video will include drag and drop definition of PB and DotNet tables and the webtable wizard. It will also demonstrate how selectors are used to locate rows.

Reusable Elements

Reuse promote faster building and maintenance of tests

Why it’s Important

Test maintenance is the most important consideration when evaluating a testing solution.  In our years of consulting work, we discovered that teams were spending as much time keeping tests up to date as it took to build them in the first place. Clearly the return on investment was being lost with every change cycle.

How We Address It

We recognize that tests need to be built on a stable foundation. Our object and step libraries provide a single point of change to maintain tests when there is a change to the business or application logic of the target application.  In AscentialTest objects, steps, tests and test data are all reusable.

How Others Do It

While there is a smattering of reuse employed by many of the competing solutions, we have not seen any other solution that allows a single point of change for objects, steps, tests and test data.

Why Our Approach is Better

Because objects, steps, tests and test data are reusable, there are fewer components to build and maintain. Changes to the target application will result in the fewest possible changes to the testing project so that test are quickly and easily modified and ready to run when you need them.

PowerBuilder Expertise

Extremely Capable Automation Test Tool For PowerBuilder Applications
Very suitable program for automated testing of PowerBuilder applications
Top testing software for PowerBuilder
Excellent product, particularly for PowerBuilder

Why PowerBuilder users choose AscentialTest: AscentialTest provides PowerBuilder automated testing support for applications from PB v6.x right up to the most current version of Appeon PowerBuilder. The Datawindow is recognized regardless of its presentation style: Form, Grid, Group, Tabular. The image below displays a Datawindow in the form of what we call a PbTable. It has rows and columns that can contain any number of control types (checkbox, popuplist, textfield, etc.).

PB Table Support: The image below displays a Datawindow in the form of what we call a PbTable. It has rows and columns that can contain any number of control types (checkbox, popuplist, textfield, etc.). AscentialTest provides a special feature called a ‘selector’, which makes it easy to locate a row in a table based on a target value. In the example below, the selector has located the third row in the table because it contains the test value ‘Table Management”:

PB Form Support: AscentialTest also recognizes the Datawindow in the form of what we call ‘PbForm’. Notice that the PbForm displayed below contains many different types of application objects including PbText, PbTextField, PbRadioGroup and PbCheckBox. These are only some of the control types that can be included on a form.

PB Toolbar Support: Most PowerBuilder applications include tool bars with icons that represent application tasks. AscentialTest provides special recognition for those tool bar icons to make it easy to select them:

PB Ribbon Support: Appeon recently introduced the ribbon bar as an alternative to the toolbar. As compared to the standard tool bar, the ribbon bar can contain PowerBuilder elements like Checkbox, TextField, PopupList and ComboBox:
