Automated Testing with Ranorex : Actions

December 11th, 2019 Posted by Embarcadero, Ranorex No Comment yet

The other day I posted about how I’m increasingly becoming a fan of the automated testing tool, Ranorex Studio. I listed a bunch of reasons and mentioned I would dive into more details about some of them.

 

So today, I’d like to start that, by looking at Actions.

Testing your RAD Studio Applications with Ranorex Studio

December 3rd, 2019 Posted by Embarcadero, Ranorex No Comment yet

Over the last few months we’ve been doing more and more work with Ranorex Studio.

 

If you’re not aware, Ranorex Studio is a Test Automation tool covering desktop, web and mobile applications. It supports applications written in dozens (or maybe hundreds, I didn’t count them all) of technologies and languages, but importantly for many of you reading this, RAD Studio is one of them.

 

I’m increasingly falling in love with this tool, for a bunch of reasons: (more…)

Network Licensing in RAD Studio

May 24th, 2019 Posted by Embarcadero No Comment yet

Many developers we talk to are not really aware that RAD Studio offers several different types of licenses. I don’t mean different Editions (like Community Edition, Professional, Enterprise, etc), I mean license types, specifically Named User, Network Named User, and Network Concurrent User.

However we regular run into customers who have requirements that are much better served by one of the Network licenses, but for whatever reason they’ve always been less well known.

So after explaining the difference for the umpteenth time recently I realised I should probably just write it up publicly so I have something to point people at. (more…)

Operator Overloading Explained

November 19th, 2018 Posted by Embarcadero 3 comments

In a recent Embarcadero webinar, Marco was demonstrating some new features of Records, including a new Assign operator that can be overloaded.

Afterwards I had a number of questions from people asking what it was all about. Why do we need an Assign operator? Why would you want to overload an operator anyway? After a bit of a discussion with them, I realised that rather than me trying to throw off a couple of sentences to explain it, I should probably write up something clearer.

If you already know what operator overloading for Records is, then this article possibly isn’t for you. But if you’ve seen this mentioned before and not been really sure what it was all about, then hopefully this article will help. (more…)

Public Information on Upcoming RAD Studio 10.3 – Updated!

October 30th, 2018 Posted by Embarcadero, News 1 comment

Over the last week or so Embarcadero has started publicly disclosing more information about the next major release of RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder, 10.3.

This is usually a pretty good sign that the release is not far away, so we thought we’d  create a single post with links to all the public information that we have, and keep it updated as more is released.

Back in August, Embarcadero updated their Public Roadmap. (Of course, something appearing on the roadmap is not a guarantee it’ll be released when they planned, but it was the best we had to go on, until recently). Here’s what they said about 10.3 at the time: (more…)
