Re: TestComplete 12.5

Thank you for the updates . How about the TestExecute ? Will TestExecute 12.42 work with testComplete 12.5 ?

 

Thanks

Re: TestComplete 12.5

Hi Nishchal,

 

Any reason to upgrade TC and leave previous TE?
Usually, projects are compatible between major TC releases... However, I noticed that some project files (NameMapping in particular as it is mentioned in the What's New section) were modified after been opened in TC12.5. Though I did not check yet if TC 12.42 is still able to use these modified files.
Note, that if you are using Network Suite functionality, then it is highly recommended to use exactly the same versions of TC and TE on all participating machines.

Regards,

The short answer to this question is: yes... with some caveats.

 

The longer answer:

 

I haven't fully explored it yet but there is one thing that I've found that makes projects that have been converted to 12.5 not work well with 12.42.  As @AlexKaras has mentioned, the NameMapping file has had some internal structural conversion.  Specifically, conditional name mapping is in a different format in 12.5  than it is in 12.42.  So, if you are using conditional name mapping and have converted your project, you will lose that conditional mapping if you try and run your project in 12.42.  My recommendation, at this point, is that if you're using conditional mapping in any point in your project, you should upgrade everything (TestComplete and TestExecute both) to version 12.5.

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.

Re: TestComplete 12.5

What errors are you getting? What code are you using? What type of application, object, etc?  The more details you can give the better.
