LeanFT as standalone console or Windows application?

Can LeanFT be configured into a standalone console or Windows application?  If so how would one do this?

I need to set it up with different input datasets to support various repeatable aspects of high-volume functional testing, regression testing and smoke testing against a web form with custom result logging to a network filesystem.  Or, would pure Selenium be a better option?

Any assistance ould be appreciated.

Re: LeanFT as standalone console or Windows application?

Hi

I have a couple of questions:

1. Which LeanFT version are you using ?

2. What exactly are you trying to achieve ? LeanFT code (inside NUnit/JUnit) can be inside any type of app that you write, it's pure code.

3. If you dont mind sharing - what organization are you working for ?

Thanks

Re: LeanFT as standalone console or Windows application?

I'm a contractor working for a Queensland government agency.

I assume that it is LeanFT v14 that came with UFT v14.

We are trying to run multiple different types of tests against an Adobe SmartForm.  

At the highest level we wish to pump through the existing client data (duly customised of course) to prove that the new form and associated logic will produce similar (not necessarily the same) results as the client's existing processes.  This could effectively replicate a data-migration using the new business logic/objects however that is not what it we intend to use the results for.  We will be using the results to confirm that the new process can handle typical existing Applicant requirements.  A comparison of the existing business database and the new resultant database will simply be used to provide a rough indication as to the consistency of the new internal processing logic with the existing business requirements.

Further tests will be established to place a reasonable load on the host servers by varying the Application content on each request to ensure that any intermediate cacheing servers or internal cacheing (including garbage collection) is appropriately exercised and quantified when the service is placed under load.

Further tests will be established for regression testing against any changes made to the application's internal logic.  As well as potential Smoke tests to ensure that all aspects of the service are available prior to allowing general user access following any type of scheduled or unscheduled service outage.

We are not interested in whether minor layout changes have been made to the form but more-so the general logic flow and results.  Part of each testing process will be to confirm against expected results.

The software is being developed off-shore, so we do not have a need for typical JUnit / NUnit test setups.

It would be desirable to include any of these data-driven test capabilities within a typical support process hence the desire to have the process stand-alone.

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi

LeanFT is a library which can be used as part of any project and can be leveraged for data-driven tests.

So i believe you can use LeanFT for your use case.

Thanks
