The experience of automating web elements becomes even better. The overhauled search procedure helps faster recognition and automation of web elements. There are some improvisations in terms of RanoreXPath generation also. Now you have shorter RanoreXPath’s that ensure robust identification of web elements for cross-browser automation.
Ranorex provides modularization features using which the related steps of the test code/ recorded test case can separated into modules, and these modules can be reused to create altogether new test cases. The modularization capability is taken a step further by addition of features that enable users to specify parameters for each module group providing more flexibility to the user in organizing the test cases.
Ranorex Object Repository can be used to manage GUI objects for recordings or test automation code. The RanoreXPath identification information and test automation can be separated with the help of a repository thereby significantly reducing the time to maintain the tests. Improvised editing of repository items and adaptation of attributes in the new release makes the maintenance process easier.
