5. Would it be possible for me to verify the business logic in the grid using TestingWhiz?

Yes, it is possible with TestingWhiz to verify the Business Logic of your Application by getting values of each cell in your grid and verifying it with the expected results. This can be done by extracting a value from a cell of the given grid and verifying it with the expected value via String & Compare commands supported by TestingWhiz.

6. How does TestingWhiz handle "object not found" issues which would cause timeout errors?

Time-out errors can be handled in two ways with TestingWhiz via two test commands,

a. Wait for time: This command will wait for the given amount of time.

b. Wait for Element: This command will wait for the specified element until visible or enable.

7. QTP and other automation tools provide Failure recovery scenarios. Does TestingWhiz provide anything similar if I want to execute all the test scripts in a batch?

Yes, there is a minimal setting inside the tool

Steps: Configurations>>Execution Window>>Pause test execution on failure.

Confirming this checkbox will pause where the execution failed, and will prompt you with the available objects to select and continue running the test script.

8. Is there any easier way to identify the objects on IE browsers if the objects are not recorded through TestingWhiz?

If objects are not found during recording than we can provide the element's ID or Class name in an object column in TestingWhiz. We can get an ID or Class name of a particular object by right-clicking on that object and selecting Inspect Element.

9. Does TestingWhiz provide support for automating Captcha?

Yes, we can automate captcha testing using TestingWhiz, but to achieve this developer will have to introduce latching code into the AUT so that we can get an appropriate response from the server to TestingWhiz and thus we can achieve this.

10. The tagline of the tool says it Code Less Test More, I realize that it provides a capable Record and Playback feature. But at the same time for people like me who want some kind of control in their hands, does it provide any capability to include custom code?

If you are good at coding, then TestingWhiz supports JavaScript out of the box via Execute JavaScript command. You can directly start coding inside the inbuilt JavaScript editor or if you want to upload any available JavaScript file then you can do that also.

11. There are multiple pop ups in my application displaying myriads of messages. How do I read the content of those pop-ups and compare it to predefined value using TestingWhiz?

Yes, we can read all the messages from the popup boxes, but only one at a time and then we can compare them with our predefined values and get the result in a pass or fail manner.

12. Sometimes I face the issue running the tool like: Unable to open the tool. How do I resolve this without contacting the support desk?

TestingWhiz requires admin privileges to run the tool might be the reason where it won’t allow you.

Follow simple step and assign admin privileges to open the tool.

15. My Jenkins job is not working with Mozilla Firefox. However, for IE and Chrome, it's working well. Why is it so?

This is because of browser and execution driver incompatibility issue. Please find below steps how this issue can be fixed:

--> Download latest 64-bit Geckodriver from E.g.

--> Extract the zip file and you will get geckodriver.exe.

--> Replace latest geckodriver.exe file in path C:\TestingWhiz Enterprise Edition\plugins\com.cygnet.autotest_6.0.0 (might vary slightly based on installation path and release, this path is valid for TestingWhiz version 6.0.0).

--> Now run job over Mozilla Firefox from Jenkins. It will work.
