Continuous Integration and Ranorex?

Post by p.zott » Thu Mar 13, 2008 8:12 pm


We are planning to use Ranorex in a Continuous Integration process.
Any experiences with this?

Thank you for this question, we made several Continuous Integration projects in the last time and we suggest to use CI for every software project.
In a continuous integration process you automate your build and test. You get feedback on whether your software is working as soon as possible after you have changed it. CruiseControl starts the automated build and testing after such events as a SVN check-in. We use NUnit for unit tests and Ranorex (what else? :wink: ) for the GUI automation.
In the CruiseControl web client, developers and testers can see the output of the build and test process. I would suggest to integrate your test scripts in your daily build system.

Automating every step in the development lifecycle (build, test, setup, documentation) can be a hard work, but I'm sure you can achieve a much higher software quality this way.
