Re: Regd Testing tool

HI,

Like load runner or qtp , is there any testing tool which is supported by O/S VAX/VMS.

Re: Regd Testing tool

from a quick look qtp appears to be a UI based test tool so DTM would be the VMS native equivilent.

loadrunner appears to be a system test tool which is not available for VMS. I guess the nearest equivilent is UETP

Re: Regd Testing tool

It may be helpful to know what (kind of) application you intend to test, and what kind of test: functionality, performance (response time? throughput?)

You mention VAX/VSM.
Is that how they call OpenVMS in you shop?
What platform, what version? VAX? Alpha? IA54?
Why is this needed now? Is this a new development?

Does everything run on the VMS system, or is there a front-end tier? green-screen ('VT100') application or some gui?

Cheers,

Re: Regd Testing tool

VAX/VSM is probably intended to be VAX/VMS here and as the name of the operating system, and the most common and traditional automated testing tool is a component of the old VAXset or newer DECset package known as DEC Test Manager (DTM).

DTM is separately installed.

Details on DTM are in the DECset documentation.

If you're really as far back as the VAX/VMS V5.5 version and still using what OpenVMS VAX was known as back then, then you're back into the era of VAXset product, too. The more recent versions of those packages are known as DECset.

DECset documentation is available at:

http://www.hp.com/go/openvms/doc

Now there have been some VAX VSM packages around, there's one for automated migration from VAX over to Solaris, IIRC.

Now if this isn't VAX/VMS and it is VAX/VSM or some other widget VSM or such, please consider adding some specific and full product names and product versions around your request for testing tools. Some of what sort of applications you're looking to test could be helpful, too. That extra detail and that background can help us answer your question, and to better target our answers.

Re: Regd Testing tool

While we may not know the exact requirements, if the user has VMS sessions available on his desktop via an emulator, any automated test package will allow "automation" of user input - this can be tests, or even data entry. I know for a fact that QA Run works well.

Re: Regd Testing tool

Answers have been given.
Google for stuff you don't understand.
Then come back with a SPECIFIC question.
DecDTM could be an OpenVMS-only solution.
But you are likely to find more happyness in general purpose windoze tool where the green screen is 'just an app' with the fact that it is openVMS based being largely irrelevant for the purpose of the test. You may also want to google for 'expect'. That could run on a unix based test driver.

Re: Regd Testing tool

It appears you're on entirely unfamiliar territory, and there's not much we can do to help with that.

Please go talk with your manager, and obtain some guidance from your manager with your questions here.

However you learn best about a new topic -- whether that is reading manuals, attending classes, using and experimenting with the packages, watching or listening to podcasts or reading guides or books -- is what you're going to be doing to learn about OpenVMS and about DECset DEC Test Manager will be next after that discussion.
