Work with Sprinter

You can run tests manually from Business Process Testing using Sprinter.

For full details on installing and working with Sprinter, refer to the Sprinter Readme and the Sprinter help, available on the Application Lifecycle Management Add-ins page.

General Sprinter advantages

Because both Sprinter and Business Process Testing are fully integrated with ALM, you can benefit from all Sprinter functionality, including:

  • creating and annotating screen captures

  • capturing movies of your run

  • recording and running macros on your test application

  • automatically entering data into fields in your application

  • automatically including the list of your steps or user actions in any defect you submit

  • replicating your user actions on multiple machines with different configurations

You can use all this functionality without interrupting the flow of your manual business process test.
