What is Zeenyx AscentialTest?
AscentialTest™ by Zeenyx Software is an enterprise level Test Management System that encompasses Test Planning, Development, Data Management, Execution and Defect Tracking for applications running on Windows, the web, java, dotNet, terminals and PowerBuilder. This “next generation” testing solution allows users to build robust automated and manual tests from reusable components created by its powerful object recognition engine without recording or scripting. Our patented ‘snapshot’ technology generates graphical representations of the application under test which allows users to build ‘Steps’ by dragging and dropping objects in a visual test editor. Reusable Steps are combined to form a multitude of automated and manual tests that are easy to create and maintain. With AscentialTest, companies realize a dramatic reduction in test creation and maintenance times, resulting in increased productivity and lower costs.

Our university students who enter our tests have found it easy to master with minimal assistance, but classes could be more object-oriented.

What is our primary use case?

We have a desktop software solution written in PowerBuilder. We have limited personnel available and need to automate as much testing as we can.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature of AscentialTest for us is that it fully supports PowerBuilder."
  • "Classes are not as object-oriented as I would like, but I am a programmer and not QA so I expect a lot."

What other advice do I have?

Great support, powerful tool, easy enough for entry-level staff to use. I am very happy with AscentialTest and would recommend it highly.

Enables us to have a single test run across multiple sets of data

What is our primary use case?

We have an insurance application where the tests need to be executed in both a testing and production environment (the difference between the two is the database). Each of the tests should be developed to address different sets of data (Data Driven Testing). A large volume of data is analyzed by comparing multiple Excel worksheets.

Pros and Cons

  • "If you use the PowerBuilder application, do choose AscentialTest without thinking twice."
  • "I would like to see an improvement in the User Interface."

What other advice do I have?

If you use the PowerBuilder application, do choose AscentialTest without thinking twice. It is the best choice, with capabilities to identify custom classes.

AT has got Unique features like snapshot technology, drag and drop. Easy to work and develop

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of AscentialTest is for automating Powerbuilder application. We have two environments (Dev and Prod) which points to different databases where we need to verify the expected data with actual data. These data's are huge and are present in excel format. Needed a single test framework which works across all the environment. AT perfectly suited for these kind of environment as a single object , step and test worked across both environment tests. AT has a very simple way of handling both the application tests.

What other advice do I have?

AT stands out as best test automation tool for powerbuilder application for sure !

Enables us to automate two of our key applications in just a few months
I still meet people struggling with automating their testing. And thanks to AscentialTest those days are long behind me. The only thing I can't wait for is for Zeenyx to add automating Mobile apps. In 2015, after my company went through several failed attempts at automating one of the key applications at my company, my boss and I decided I would give it a try. We were somewhat invested in Selenium and I had past experience with QTP, but I hadn’t done any coding since 2003 and really didn’t want to script. I decided to do a formal tool evaluation. I evaluated tools, services, and scripting languages. See the list below. Note AscentialTest is not on the list. We selected SmartBear’s TestComplete.
