Parallel Object

Applies to TestComplete 14.90, last modified on June 15, 2021

Description

In TestComplete, you can create tests that will run in device clouds rather than on your local workstation. For such tests, you can orchestrate parallel runs. To do this, you can use methods of the Parallel object or manage the tests by using the project’s execution plan.

Example

The example below shows how to use the Parallel.RunTests method to control parallel test runs. The method runs MyTest1 and MyTest2 in parallel.

JavaScript, JScript

function Main()
{
  // Set a list of tests to run in parallel
  var tests = ['Script|Unit1|MyTest1', 'Script|Unit1|MyTest2'];

  // Run tests in parallel
  Parallel.RunTests(tests);
}

function MyTest1()
{
  var url = "http://services.smartbear.com/samples/TestComplete14/smartstore/";
  // Set the URL of the device cloud server
  var server = "http://hub.crossbrowsertesting.com:80/wd/hub";

  // Set an environment for the test to run
  var capabilities = {
  "platform": "Mac OSX 10.14",
  "browserName": "Safari",
  "version": "12",
  "screenResolution": "1366x768"
};

  // Launch a browser in the environment
  Browsers.RemoteItem(server, JSON.stringify(capabilities)).Run(url);

  var browser = Sys.Browser();
  var page = browser.Page("*services.smartbear.com/samples/TestComplete*/smartstore/");
  …

}

function MyTest2()
{
  var url = "http://services.smartbear.com/samples/TestComplete14/smartstore/";
  // Set the URL of the device cloud server
  var server = "http://hub.crossbrowsertesting.com:80/wd/hub";

  // Set an environment for the test to run
  var capabilities = {
  "deviceName": "Pixel 4",
  "platformName": "Android",
  "platformVersion": "10.0",
  "browserName": "Chrome",
  "deviceOrientation": "portrait"
};

  // Launch a browser in the environment
  Browsers.RemoteItem(server, JSON.stringify(capabilities)).Run(url);

  var browser = Sys.Browser();
  var page = browser.Page("*services.smartbear.com/samples/TestComplete*/smartstore/");
  …

}
