Settings

The application that you want to test on a mobile device, the device metrics that are collected, and the actions taken on the application before and after each test run.

  • Application. Click the Select button, and select an application you want to test.
  • SAPUI5 technology (optional) Select SAPUI5 technology if you are working with SAPUI5 technology in mobile applications. Sprinter will launch the application with the SAP UFT agent in order to record all controls.

  • Advanced Settings. Determine which device metrics are collected, the action taken on the application before and after each test run, and the network virtualization profile to use.

Additional Settings - only available for ALM users

Close the browser when the test closes. Automatically close the browser at the end of the test.

Location. The path to the desktop application (if relevant).

Parameters. Any parameters you want Sprinter to use when it starts the application.

Working folder. The working folder for the desktop application. The working folder is used by the application to search for related files. If a working folder is not specified, the application's executable folder is used as the working folder.

Technologies - available for ALM and UFT users

The technologies used in developing the application being tested.

  • For Power Mode to work, you need to ensure that all the technologies that were used to develop your application are selected. Consult the application developers if you are not sure which technologies to select.

  • Some technologies depend on other technologies to run. Some of these dependencies are automatically selected and disabled in the Technologies list.

  • For best performance it is recommended to avoid selecting unnecessary technologies.

  • Web is selected by default for Web applications.

  • You can make use of Web Extensibility packages developed for QuickTest /Unified Functional Testing to enable Power Mode to support objects that are not supported out-of-the-box. Extensibility packages can be developed for Web, Java, .NET Windows Forms, WPF, and Silverlight. For details, see Using Web Extensibility Packages.

  • For SAP GUI for Windows troubleshooting and limitations, see Troubleshooting Power Mode.

Start the application when the run begins - available for ALM and UFT users

Instructs Sprinter to automatically start the application when you start your run.

It is recommended that you configure Sprinter to start your application when the run begins or manually start your test application after you begin your run.

For desktop applications that use Java, ActiveX, and Web applications:

  • Sprinter can only work with these applications if they start when the runs begins.

  • If you do not configure Sprinter to start your application when the run begins, you need to manually start your application after you begin your run.

  • Sprinter will work with any Java application that is started when the run begins or after the run begins.

For desktop applications that do not use ActiveX:

  • Sprinter can work with these applications that were already running before the run begins. Sprinter is set by default to not start these applications when the run begins.

Record on any open application - available for ALM and UFT users

Instructs Sprinter to record user actions on any open application and not only the application defined in the Add Application dialog box. This can be useful when your test involves using more than one application and you want to record the user actions for all applications.

Selecting this option may affect performance.
