What is the latest version of the RunTestSet Utility?

Hello!

 

I am looking for the RunTestSet Utility that is supported by ALM 11.52.

 

I have found the version for QC10,and QC/ALM 11 in this KB Article:

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM1395031

 

Is this version supported by ALM 11.52?

 

Where can I get the ALM 11.52 RunTestSet Utility?

Knowledge document information    
      
Title:   How to schedule test sets to run periodically for Quality Center 
Document ID:   KM191021 
Product:   Quality Center 
Version:   
OS:   Unspecified 
Updated:   2013-Jul-12 
Summary:   How to schedule test sets to run periodically for Quality Center  
   
      
TestDirector for Quality Center (TD for QC) enables users to create sets of tests (test sets) and plan their execution: start time, planned host or host group, and dependency. But, there is no option to schedule these test sets to run periodically. Currently, TD for QC does not have a built-in test set scheduler.
Please refer to this article if using TestDirector 7.6 or 8.0:
Document ID KM304985 - How to schedule Test Sets to run periodically for TestDirector 7.6 or 8.0
 
  
 Solution 
  
 Example RunTestSet application that works with Microsoft Scheduler for QC
The existing OTA API enables you to run external tools that can execute any test set on any host. An example RunTestSet application (with Visual C++ sourcecode) is supplied as part of proposed solution.

Any scheduler application can be used to launch RunTestSet application, for example Microsoft Scheduler (part of Windows installation).

The example Run TestSet schedulers are attached below.

- CPT38343A.zip is QC 8.2 SP1 TestSet Scheduler Solution

- CPT38343B.zip is QC 9.0 TestSet Scheduler Solution

- RunTestSetScheduler.zip is an updated version for QC 9.x and QC 10.  There is an updated TestSet Scheduler Solution.doc as well.

- CPT38343C.zip is the TestSet Scheduler Solution complying with QC10 and compiled with Visual Studio 2005. It also contains a release working with QC10 in the "Release" folder.

- CPT38343D.zip is the TestSet Scheduler Solution complying with ALM11 and compiled with Visual Studio 2005. It also contains a release working with ALM11 in the "Release" folder.

 

The downloads include ZIP files that contain:
1. Console program
2. How to use Document
3. Source (VC++ over OTA API)
4. For QC10 and ALM11, release of a build.

Notes:


•The readme file indicates that /h and /l are optional. This is not exactly correct. You will need to select one in order to execute the test set. This option determines where the test set will be executed.
•Note that this has been updated recently to contain another command line function to have mail notification if a test fails (only if a test fails).
•Support for test set folder path is provided with this version.
The utility has not been QA'd by HP/Mercury and is NOT supported. Full source is provided with this utility. Feel free to modify the source to suit your specific needs.

Re: What is the latest version of the RunTestSet Utility?

Is this for use when invoking UFT tests via ALM?

Thakn you for this information. Right now I do not have a test environment to test this in 11.5, so I am not sure this will be approved. Maybe I can build a VM and test it there...

Thakn you, John!

Re: What is the latest version of the RunTestSet Utility?

Hi Laura,

Correct QTP via ALM. Yes, please test it out and let us know. This seems to be the last version created by HP this past July.

Anytime!

Re: What is the latest version of the RunTestSet Utility?

another question, John...

In KB Article here -http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/​KM1395031

It talks of a RunTestUtility.

Is this the same utility that you are talking about, TestDirector?

Or are these different utilities?

Re: What is the latest version of the RunTestSet Utility?

What version of ALM/QC are you using?

What is the OS, service Pack, and bit level of the system where you are running the Utility?
