Custom Engine

Wednesday, December 12, 2012
Is there any way to create a custom engine for RemoteLaunch?  We are currently using XStudio for our automated test execution and result reporting; and for automation, it is an amazing tool.  It has an open launcher that can be customized for whatever you need and it works great.  However, we find XStudio lacking on the manual test/requirements side and we've decided to use SpiraTest for all that.  Is there any way to create a custom engine for RemoteLaunch?  I would like to possibly get everything into one tool, but we have a custom automation framework solution that sits on top of Selenium RC.  I am sure that your default Selenium RC launcher won't work with our framework.  Our framework is more of a java framework that just uses Selenium for the automation actions; all our scripts are self executable java files.  We also have custom startup and teardown functionality, as well as custom pass/fail/warning code, etc.  Would it be possible to customize an engine to work with our framework or are the standard engines you offer the only ones that will work with RemoteLaunch?

Hi Steve

We actually have two options for you:

1) We have a generic command-line launcher that can be used to launch any custom automation framework that runs as an executable. It then parses the results from the console and uses that to report back to SpiraTest.

2) We have a SDK (see at the bottom of the page). It includes a sample C# project for creating a RemoteLaunch extension of your own. If the command-line option in (1) is not sufficient for your needs, then this would give you ultimate flexibility.
