I have few queries related to Ca Devtest. Currently I am using version 10.2. We are in the process of finding out whether this tool would be a best fit for the functionalities/features described below. Appreciate your earliest response in this
1. Does Ca Devtest support IOS and Android based Mobile Automation?
2. In some of the project we have the requirement where in the response need to be verified on the Splunk. Can we do this with CA Dev Test?
3. Is it Compatible with Gemfire? Any built in support available for connecting from Ca Devtest to Gemfire interface?
4. I understand the tool support at API level but does it Support UI Automation for the Application build using Angular JS based platform.
We have your support case. We will answer and also post here as well.
Thank you very much Marcy
1• Does it support IOS and Android based Mobile Automation?
Answer: We had Mobile testing functionality for prior versions of DevTest but as of Aug 1, 2017 there is no mobile support.Please see doc link below:
End of Life Features - DevTest Solutions - 10.3 - CA Technologies Documentation
2• In some of the project we have the requirement wherein the response need to be verified on the Splunk. Can we do this with CA Dev Test?
Answer: Unfortunately, there is no splunk add-ons for DevTest. However, it is possible to build a JSR step to execute a Splunk query to retrieve the data.You would need the Splunk JAR files, a login account within Splunk and an understanding of the query and query syntax that needs to be constructed.When the query responds with information, the JSR step logic would need to parse the query response and manually validate the information.
For more information, research the following classes for the implementation:com.splunk.Job, com.splunk.JobArgs, com.splunk.ResultsReaderXml, com.splunk.Service, com.splunk.ServiceArgs, com.splunk.SSLSecurityProtocol
The Splunk login information would include the Host Server, user name, password, and port. It is likely that some sort of security protocol would need to be established for the login – probably TLSv1 or higher.Once logged in, some type of Splunk query would be executed using Splunk query syntax (index, source, context, etc.The query result would be returned in some type of reader (i.e., ResultsReaderXml) and the information would need to be extracted.Once extracted, the information could then be validated against the business requirements.
Please consult with CA Services about creating this mechanism.
3• Is it Compatible with Gemfire?
Answer: You could either use our “Execute External Command” Test step or the REST step via App Test to call the Gemfire API over command line.
4• I understand the tool support at API level but does it Support UI Automation for the Application build using Angular JS based platform.
Answer: We support Selenium. Please Check out the documentation - https://docops.ca.com/devtest-solutions/10-3/en/reference/test-step-descriptions/selenium-integration-steps
