I am in the midst of evaluating Work Fusion Express for my company. Using Version 2.1-beta now.
I started by doing simple recording and playing the recording as follows.
- I evaluated by recording the login process to a web application. Recording seemed ok but playing it failed. It seemed to fail to recognise the web application as web application. It’s treated as a windows application. So, it failed miserably. Is there somewhere I have to specify it’s a windows application or a web application?
- I deleted the entire recording and manually “coded” it using xpath based on my experience in robot framework. It worked.
- I evaluated by recording double clicking of MS Word shortcut on my desktop. Then chose a blank document. Keyed in some text. Closed MS Word without saving the file. Recording seemed ok but when playing back, again it failed. It failed at double clicking the MS Word shortcut. I had re-recorded multiple times without any success in playing back the recording. The detailed error message of Java was not that useful at all. I am still clueless on why such a simple double clicking could fail. The selector as follows looked strange to me because I didn’t click or hover on the Sticky Notes. It should be showing something about MS Word rather than Sticky Note:
[CLASS:HwndWrapper[StickyNotes.Wpf.exe;;;;50a05ef6-b0e6-414c-bcc2-966f49b86f44]; NAME:Sticky Notes; TEXT:Sticky Notes]
I have no idea why it’s picking up Sticky Notes instead of MS Word. Is it a bug of Work Fusion Express?
