Rapise v6.3 Released - Adds Support for SAP Hana UI5

28-Jan-2020 by Inflectra Product News

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest version of our award winning automated software testing solution - Rapise. The new version (6.3) provides support for testing SAP Hana UI5 ERP applications, a new RPA execution monitor for Robotic Process Automation (RPA), the ability to run Rapise tests in a containerized DevOps pipeline (Docker, Kubernetes, etc.) and many usability and performance enhancements.

Support for Testing SAP Hana UI5 Applications

We are very excited to have added support for testing and automating the SAP Hana ERP Platform. Rapise is already a proven solution for other complex ERP and CRM applications such as Microsoft Dynamics and Salesforce, and now that power and flexibility has finally come to the SAP ecosystem.

Rapise 6.3 comes with a new web library dedicated to testing SAP UI5. This provides support for the SAP UI5 (Fiori) platform itself, plus any other non-SAP applications that are using the same OpenUI5 web toolkit.

When you try and test SAP applications using just open source tools such as Selenium or many other testing tools not specifically designed for SAP, the results are pretty poor. This is because the SAP user interface is sophisticated and uses dynamic elements, hidden layers and other elements that make testing by hand quite challenging. The dedicated support in Rapise makes this much easier. Pages that would take several days to automate by hand using Selenium can be created in Rapise in less than an hour.

In addition, the new Self-Healing Mode available in Rapise v6.2 was a crucial foundation from which we were able to create the SAP support in Rapise. The unique Rapise self-healing engine helps deal with complex cases in SAP and makes playback much more reliable.

Ability to Run Rapise Tests in a Container using NodeJS

We are excited to announce another amazing new feature in Rapise v6.3 - running web and mobile tests under NodeJS. This lets you execute Rapise tests not just on Windows where Rapise is typically installed to write tests, but in other places - on Macs, Linux, containers such as Docker or Kubernetes, and build pipelines such as Azure DevOps pipelines, CircleCI, TravisCI and GitHub pipelines.
