What is most valuable?

Most visual components can be defined by simple drag and drop operations. Reusing the defined objects is intuitive. For more complicated components, Identifying windows and window components is flexible and powerful. Complicated test steps... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I have undergraduate Computer Science students entering all of our tests and they have found it easy to master with minimal assistance from me. The savings from using entry-level programmers instead of experienced staff to code tests has more... more»

What do you think of Zeenyx AscentialTest?

Valuable Features It's easy to create tests because you just drag and drop objects instead of writing code. • Improvements to My Organization We have a major upgrade of the two key applications I automated.

What is most valuable?

The application under test gets flattened out with the snapshots and "pathing" the elements is a natural activity, leading to ease of use with the step development. For example, once a browser test was developed it was easy to keep it... more»

What needs improvement?

Limitations are found to be primarily in the ux of the tool; for example when in doubt one often right clicks in an unfamiliar product to get unstuck, and AscentialTest lacks some of these fineries. Having to double click on certain fields in... more»
