This topic describes the changes made to TestComplete 3.05. For information on the changes made to other versions of the product, see Version History.
- Java support has been extended. Now TestComplete supports Sun JDK (or JRE) v. 1.1.8 and later.
- The WebClient plugin includes
a new option - Add
comments for Wait method. It has effect when TestComplete
is recording user actions performed over Web pages. If the option is
on, TestComplete inserts the Web page address before the
Page.Waitmethod that waits until that Web page is loaded. This approach makes the recorded script more readable.
- The DbgServices plugin
includes a new group of options - Exceptions.
The options of this group regulate exception tracing in the applications
under test. Now if the Exceptions | Active option is enabled, the plugin traces exceptions
in all the processes launched by the methods of the
DbgServicesobject. This makes the
TraceExceptionsmethod of the process object obsolete. This method has been removed.
- Network suites sport the following improvements:
- Communication between master and slave computers have been improved.
A new method of the
GetRemoteOLEObject, lets you easily get a reference to any COM object that is running on a remote computer. Using this COM object you can perform any actions you need. For instance, you can create a COM object that will restart either a remote computer, or the TestComplete instance running on that computer after a network suite run is over.
NetSuiteobject now contains the
Addressproperty. It specifies the IP address of the computer where TestComplete is installed.
NetSuiteobject also includes a new
Hostsproperty. This property holds a collection of all
Hostobjects that are available in a network suite.
- The new
SharedPathproperty of the
NetSuiteobject lets you share a particular folder during the network suite run.
Hostobjects are now read/write.
Taskobject now includes the
Routineproperties. They specify the project file (.mds) and the script routine that the given task should run.
- Communication between master and slave computers have been improved. A new method of the
- Changes in the Object-Driven
- Now you can specify boolean values for properties and variables in the Object-Driven Testing panel. To do this, simply type true or false in the Value column. To specify a string value, enclose true (false) in quotes (that is, "true" or "false").
- To indicate that a variable or a property holds a reference to an object that was not created via the Object-Driven Testing panel or via the ODT programming object, TestComplete displays OleObject as a property (or a variable) value.
- The class name OleObject is reserved. You cannot create classes with this name.
- The Watch List dialog holds a new column, Enabled, that lets you temporarily enable or disable watch expressions.
- The Visual Studio Emulation key mapping scheme has the Ctrl+Del shortcut for deleting a symbol to the right of the caret.
- A number of bug fixes.
