Testing is an integral part of any JD Edwards EnterpriseOne change event project. More than just a “necessary evil” the test phase of any project is a fundamental quality assurance process. Identifying and eliminating process errors before they make it through to production will save time, money and effort in the long-run.
The bigger the change event project, the more testing is required. The ability to automate some, or all, of the functional testing elements of any project will help reduce the resource burden of script creation and execution. Plus, it can eliminate the risk of input error during a manual, run and repeat process.
DWS introduced Dimension SwifTest™ in 2016. Since then, it has rapidly become one of the leading test automation solutions for JDE E1. Savings of up to 60% can be realized during test execution; with further savings of 70% achievable during the creation and maintenance of test scripts.
DWS Dimension SwifTest v18.104.22.168, released on 12th February 2018, introduces a range of new features.
- Repeater – feedback from users suggested a simple repeat feature would help save even more time. Users can now run tests that cycle through repository datastore rows; enabling tests to be driven by soft-coded data.
- Datastore – the runtime datastore is used to collect data from E1 during the execution of a test. This data can then be used in a later test stage, or by other tests within the same scenario. Enhancements include a new “manually set value” action and greater functionality within the “store from value” and “store grid value” actions.
Further speed enhancements have been made throughout the product and it now supports both dropdown/combo boxes inside grid cells and supports pure custom E1 pages.
