Power Mode Overview

When you run a test in Power Mode, Sprinter learns your application's display and identifies its objects. This information enables Sprinter to track your activity during your test run. It also enables Sprinter to help you perform some of the user actions on your application.

With this information, Sprinter can:

  • Create and run macros to allow Sprinter to perform a set of actions in your application for you.

  • Automatically enter data into fields in your application (for ALM, Octane, and UFT users).

  • Replicate your user actions on multiple machines (for ALM, Octane, and UFT users).

  • Scan the application for potential defects (for ALM, Octane, and UFT users).

  • Keep a record of your user actions. Add comments and reminders to the recorded user actions in your run, for later review.

  • Keep a record of the defects you submitted for each action.

  • Automatically include the list of your steps or user actions in any defect you submit to create a defect scenario.

For Sprinter to be able to learn your application's display, you need to define the application you will be testing.
