  • Does Oracle Functional testing tool recognizes .net forms and objects? OR it works well only with Oracle Forms?

  • Hi Srinivas,

    Is it possible to integrate Sikuli tool with openscript?
    I want to use sikuli for automating desktop applications like JDE(Mainframe), Is there any alternate way or thirdparty freeware tool for the automation of desktop applications which can be integrated with Openscript OATS as well.

    I am using OATS 12.

    • I am using OATS Version: Build 1012

        I think it should be possible to invoke sikuli scripts from OATS too.. Recently some additional tools have come in to market which are opensource… and can automate windows apps tooo…

      Hi Srikanth,

      Thank you for reaching out to us, ideally there is no hard and fast rule that you need to follow a certain approach:
      Sometimes it is just easy to record and customize the script.
      Sometimes, you may have to code without recordings, cases especially when you have re usable libraries as per your framework or you cannot automate few things generically with just recording of the script.

      I suggest, which ever suites you to script fast can be adapted, as long as it fits to your framework and other aspects.

      Thank You,
      Srinivas P.
