Why Automate the Tests of your PowerBuilder Applications?

Automated testing is a great solution for PowerBuilder apps.
They are usually data-centric, with a rich UI generating lots of testing scenarios.

  • Define a series of manipulations that the tool will play automatically as often as you need.
  • Get a better test coverage, less regression bugs and a much better testing productivity.

Why most testing tools don't work well with PB?

Most testing tools have difficulties to handle PB applications,
because they cannot properly analyze datawindows and their inner structure.

  • Some tools would suggest writing custom code, reducing the overall productivity
  • The result is often poor

AscentialTest is not a recorder

Unlike recorders that require to recreate tests with each new version of the application, AscentialTest uses the application objects to define test actions.
