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.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated a few tools but there was a lot of coding required. Since it was an application with limited requirements and budget, our customer preferred AscentialTest… more»

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.

The ability to switch to Z mode is very convenient: it aids the test… more»

How has it helped my organization?

As a platform corporation a primary strategic goal is to develop coherent tests across platforms, and this is where Ascential Test shines. Our open source projects benefit from being harnessed from this central point of control, as the projects are incarnated in wpf clients, Docker containers and AWS back-ends, open source DBs and web browsers, with imminent migration to micro-services… 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 order to get into edit mode is a bit non-standard, and again some care needs to be put into the ux so that the user does not get stuck.
