Supported test objects
The RapidRep Test Suite is a test automation solution for the back-end. The large range of test objects includes tables, files and programs without user interface.
RapidRep supports access to data of different origin. Currently, RapidRep can access more than 50 different data sources and use them simultaneously in a test case.
List of supported data warehouses
RapidRep can access the data of the following systems (sorted alphabetically). You can receive the required JDBC drivers from your administrator who supervises the respective database.
|Supported Data Warehouses|
|Apache Derby||IMS||MS Access||SAP HANA|
|CA Datacom||Informix||MS SQL Server||SAP MaxDB|
|Clipper||Interbase||neo4j||Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise|
|CUBRID||InterClient||Nonstop SQL||Sybase IQ|
|dBase||Java DB||OleDB Provider||ThinkSQL|
|H2 Database||Mimer SQL||Pointbase|
List of supported text formats
RapidRep can access the content of files. The required drivers and wizards to do so are an inherent feature of RapidRep.
|CSV||columns are separated by a delimiter|
|Fixed Length||file with fixed sentence structure|
|XML||as a file or as a result of a URL (e.g. web service)|
|MS Excel||cohesive range in an Excel sheet|
Programs as test objects
RapidRep can measure the functionality, stability and performance of back-end programs automatically. Back-end programs process input data and parameters without manual intervention according to a deterministic logic and create (interim) results. Input via a user interface (GUI) is not supported by RapidRep.
In case of the function tests, RapidRep performs a fully automated target/actual comparison. RapidRep can either use the known expected result or determine the result with the help of rulebooks or a model-based approach (RapidRep as so called "test oracle").
