Suppoted test objects in Back-End


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
DB2 Intersystems Cache NuoDB Teradata
dBase Java DB OleDB Provider ThinkSQL
Firebird LDAP OpenIngres Times Ten
FoxPro LucidDB Oracle VSAM
Frontbase Mckoi Paradox  
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.

File format Comment
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").
