Importing 'TestComplete' library to my Python based framework


Importing 'TestComplete' library to my Python based framework

Hi Folks,


Need a urgent help here.

I wanted to call 'TestComplete' library to my 'Python based Framework'.

I am aware about COM based support

But, can we do same for python.

Would be glad if someone worked on similar scenarios share their thoughts.

Hi Santosh,


Could you clarify your problem, please?

Basically, TestComplete can be controlled from the command line, user interface or through the COM.

Hi Alex,


I dont want to use TestExecute.exe to run, i simply wanted to run a TestComplete script, without using TestComplete/TestExecute. Can i do that, if yes, could you please provide a pointer.

Generally speaking.... you can't.  TestComplete automation depends upon the TestComplete engines.  You can set up your Python Framework, but somewhere in there it will need to make a call out to TestComplete to execute the test, either triggering a commandline of TestExecute or TestComplete.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
