  • Hi Srinivas,

    I read that OATS does not support Chrome browser for recording. How can I record my test cases on an application that is supposed to be tested only on Chrome?

    Can we record on some other browser and then run on chrome? Or do we need to do a lot of coding around the web element locators for chrome? Are there any add ons, libraries that need to be included in for this?

    Regards,

      Firstly, The latest version of OATS (12.5) supports recording and playback on chrome browser. I think you should try that.

      Support for angular js based application is not so compelling using OATS, i would recommend to go with some opensource frameworks to automate angular js applications, otherwise you may have to do some research if you want to work with OATS, be aware that record and playback may not work, you should work with DOM for these kind of things. You can search in testingtools.co like get all links using oats you and go through the code you will get some understanding on the code.

      In case you have queries , please ask through comments.

  • Thank you Srinivas for your input!
    So we can use other locators like id, tagname, link, class etc in OATS or only xpath?

    I am not working on OATS currently but we are doing a tool feasibility study for an application where the floe is partly in Oracle (forms) and partly in a web application (Angular). We considered OATS because of the ease of automating forms with it. I read OATS can automate web applications too but since this is a Angular one, we need to do more research.

      Well the ultimatum is xpath when it comes to OATS, but you need to understand there are APIs of OATS which can help you identify objects using even other attributes like id,name, for, etc..

  • hi, i am facing an issue while recording. i set the recording preferences proxy to chain proxy and use browser proxy. the browser used is firefox45.7esr and openscript is 12.5.0.3. the browser proxy settings when opened manually are auto-detect and it works fine. when the openscript opens the browser, the proxy settings seen are some fixed value(don’t know where it came from) and my site does not open due to it. please help!!

      Try doing one thing, once you click on record the browser gets opened. Now try to set the proxy settings and save them. Stop recording and start fresh and see if it works by any chance??
