Connected Application performance?

I was wondering if there are any known performance benefits or drawbacks related with writing connected applications for testing in TestComplete. I thought maybe there would be a performance benefit since connected applications are compiled instead of interpreted, but on the other hand it seems the commands still have to go through the OLE server to actually do anything. Any ideas?

  • Hello Paul,

    A Connected Application works with TestComplete wrapper objects via RPC, that is why, an action performed by a Connected Application will take longer than the same action performed by a script.
