User Assessments By Topic About Worksoft Certify

Parameter-driven action steps (no programming): Able to interact with all application objects, as well as execute all logical, mathematical and text manipulations, with clearly defined parameter-driven action steps. These features, and the basic structure and framework, eliminate the confusion of building a framework for every test. The framework is inherent with Certify. Certify is built on a database where all components are indexed for easy usability and reusability. This concept is difficult to manage with most other tools where tests and components of tests are very possibly on different servers, workstations, and folders. Process and data RecordSet coupling feature: You can import lengthy spreadsheets and, with the framework of Certify, then extract only test data needed by attaching that one imported spreadsheet RecordSet to your executable process and, with just one action step in the process, write to the RecordSet, and build only the test data you need. This feature of a Certify process does automatically read and process the next row of data in the spreadsheet RecordSet without any programming. And the feature of a Write action will write all the variables associated with a RecordSet with just one write action step. Point and click on application objects will automatically create an action step referencing the Object's Attributes and with a variety of actions automatically promoted for selection based on your application object type. This means minimal guess work on how to interact with an object. Easy transition during execution between application development disciplines. Go to SAP, Web, Java, mainframe, or any discipline, all in the same test execution. Easy interaction with DOS files during execution.
Certify has been in perpetual improvement mode since it's inception. Although I don't think it would be easy, being able to edit and change an action and logic flow in mid-test execution would be nice. Of course, with event-driven execution, this would be a bit of a reach. I’m not an expert on compliers however I do have a background as an Assembler coder. I believe most applications now are event driven and most, if not all, automation tools are Interpretive, compiled at execution time. Certify is Interpretive as well as having only parameter driven source (no programming syntax). During execution, the processer is using the Interpretive version of each step, not the actual source created by the developer. Linking back to that original source and maintaining executable sync and content would be a stretch. This is not a restriction of Certify but of any Interpretive complied automation tool. Certify does have a feature to execute just portions of its source, during editing; however, I believe that is more manageable than interrupting execution to then edit the source. I found it difficult to conjure up enhancements to this tool possibly because I have intimate experience with Certify and have always found success using one or more features. However, there is one enhancement request that might have merit. Allow a Variable to be used in the Label parameter of the Execute Process Action. Certify has an Action step ‘Execute Process’ that has a Parameter for ‘Process Name’ and a Parameter for ‘Label’. This Action allows you to execute a sub-Process and begin that execution at any Label in the sub-Process. The Parameter for ‘Process Name’ can be a Variable containing the name of a sub-Process which can be changed based on application and logical response during execution. However, the Parameter for Label cannot be a Variable. If it could, it would provide yet another nice structural feature of Certify.
