Pros: What I really like about Ranorex is its wide coverage of technologies, relative easy to learn and use UI, pretty robust and reliable element recognition and very helpful and responsive support. In fact, their proactive and friendly support was one of the major decision points for me. I'm working with Ranorex since 2012 and so far, I was always able to achieve my goals (automating mainly desktop and web-based apps).

Cons: Unfortunately, I really don't like Ranorex API documentation. While the general Ranorex user guide is great both for novice and advanced users, advanced coders may find Ranorex API documentation pretty inadequate and lacking samples. Luckily, Ranorex user forum is already filled with tons of use cases and code examples. Still, Ranorex API documentation really needs an overhaul.

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Pros: I like the fact that it offers a very good API, with which one can write his own software to use the Ranorex testing capabilities. The studio itself is very good too, though our needs are not entirely met (internal reasons), which is why the API came in very handy.

Cons: Sometimes it has troubles with certain browsers and recognizing them, even with the appropriate plugins (firefox), though all problems were solvable in the end.

The API documentation is hard to find and could be improved.

Overall: In general I like working with Ranorex quite much, as it is in general easy to use and easy to integrate via the API into your own project. The support is excellent and updates are frequent enough, but not obnoxiously often. I strongly recommend it!

Pros: C# based, building block structured, a lot of integrations with 3rd party tools, great technical forums, prompt right-to-the-point technical support, listening to the customer voice, working on documentation improvement, convenient development environment.

Cons: Poor Runner capabilities and difficulty to stop/pause its running, performance should be improved, documentation and examples should be improved

Overall: We use Ranorex for testing the family of embedded devices via our management GUI. the automation enables us to implement multiple and thorough tests that is impossible to perform manually since tremendous number of features and setting permutations.

Ranorex was the best platform for us on the automation tools market.

Pros: Test suites can be put together vey quickly using record feature and organised logically using smart folders. Ranorex Spy very useful for creating paths to elements. Easy to add additional code and Ranorex helpers provided for common procedures. White List feature can be used to only include the required processes which avoids interruptions during playback. Ranorex Agents can be installed in remote machines for parallel running (need runtime licence for each active Agent). New features and improvements being added all the time. I have only used the web testing part so far so cannot comment on mobile or desktop support.

Cons: Integrates with Selenium but the number of parallel tests is restricted to the number of Ranorex licences you have which excludes one of the main features of Selenium. No graphic representation of modules and workflow as exists in other products e.g. HP UFT. Does crash occasionally.during record sessions apparently due to McAfee.

I use Ranorex to automate our software suite that spans many windows and web applications. It's great to be able to use one framework to automate all of our software and not have to split it up between web and desktop.

My overall experience has been great with a few hiccups that have always been promptly resolved. For our team, we have a broad range of test cases that we automate on various platforms, web, mobile, and desktop. Using Ranorex, we have been able to integrate our automation seamlessly into our testing environment and we have covered a lot of tests that have saved us time and money. Great experience and once you have the tool under control and some coding experience with C#, the possibilities are endless.

Pros: Ranorex does exactly what I need it to do. Having c# as the programming language has made it possible for us to integrate Ranorex with our own test automation framework. I have successfully used Ranorex to primarily test Qt, WPF, and Html. Ranorex Magic Merger for git has been superb. Saved me a lot of time trying to merge large XML files.

Cons: Lack of support for newer versions of c#

Overall: Overall great experience. I had not heard about Ranorex until I started my new position. It has good support for many technologies.

Ranorex has been fairly easy to learn even without any programming experience.

Pros: It was very simple to learn and use, and I have barely scratched the surface as far as what it can do.

Cons: I am not sure at this time, everything that I have been unsure of I have talked to tech support and they have come up with a solution for me.

Overall: It has me to setup multiple regression tests to test PERSI's retirement system & website that would take someone months to try & test everything & it is all done in less than 24 hours.

Ranorex became industry standard in automation testing

Pros: I've used a lot of tools for automation, but Ranorex is the only one that can automate practically anything. It manage to work with all desktop application and object recognition is now at top level from v8. The team is really responsive and support is on a great level of deep expertise.

Cons: DB use and verification could be improved, since currently one need to deep into code to make otherwise easy sql use and store of var data.

Overall: All in one automation tool with great customization capabilities

"Automate your business Process using Ranorex"
What do you like best?
Automated testing is the best way to meet all the goals related to the testing, but it is equally important to have the best automation tool to simplify your business processes and Ranorex, is one such automation tool which works with all the technologies and devices. It works with desktop and web applications.

The best part is that it is even mobile compatible. You can even perform cross device or cross browser testing using Ranorex. It has a good amount of documentation and user guides, it even includes image recognition, which is a challenge in most of the automation tools.

What do you dislike?
Ranorex is a bit complicated for the non programmers to start off with. Templates or solutions, which ease the testing process, are not separate for web/forms projects.

What do you like best?
I especially like because Ranorex is a test automation framework for testing GUI desktop , web and mobile applications -based .

Having a Ranorex not own programming language , using standard programming languages ??instead

"One of the greatest tool for Automation Developer!!"
What do you like best?
The way Ranorex work in using Repository and Tracker tool is simply great. I do not have to worry about finding XML paths manually and storing them in variables. Ranorex does it all for me. :D

What do you dislike?
I figured that Ranorex doesn't have a huge audience for support as some other tools like Selenium has. But whenever I asked for any questions or queries to Ranorex support team, they reached back to me with a solution within 24 hours which is great!

Recommendations to others considering the product
Just try to use the product for evaluation period. I am pretty sure, it will do the job you need to do in simplest manner. Especially makes it easy to code Automation using OOP concepts.

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

What do you like best?
I like that you can do a lot of things programatically. I like that it allows my agents to focus on more important tasks versus focusing on smoke testing. Plus, it allows more issues to be caught during smoke testing, as there is less room for human error due to repetition.

What do you dislike?
It's a little inflexible when it comes to older VB6 applications. I do not like the record function. It's very slow and occasionally off the mark. For applications that use Dynamically Named forms, there is very little help and I find the forums and it's participants very unhelpful. I also find the website is a nightmare to navigate through and that it's hard to find exactly what you are looking for.

"Ranorex is the most versatile and lightweight automation tool I have used."
What do you like best?
Ranorex is lightweight, fast, and easy to use. We do not do record and playback but I understand you could do this with Ranorex Studio. We simply use Ranorex Spy to determine Rxpaths and put them in the code of our in-house automation application.

What do you dislike?
Out of all of the automation tools I have used, Ranorex is the best. Their support is responsive and they release updates frequently. The only thing I can think of that I dislike is how they changed their pricing model to charge more for use on VMs.

Recommendations to others considering the product
With update 5.3 you now need a special "floating" license to run or develop automation on a virtual machine. This hit me by surprise when I was asked by support to update to the latest version for a bug fix.

Friday, May 22, 2015

What do you like best?
Ranorex minimizes the pitfalls of other test automation products. Maintenance is super fast and easy. Not only can you capture and playback, but you can add steps manually, and code in C# for robustness. Image processing is available with great post-processing options, and the reports are wonderful for debugging and very informative.

Variables and data-driven testing is a breeze, allowing the tester to create one test and iterate though it any amount of times.

Instead of straight programming, Ranorex uses modules which contain steps. These can be dragged and dropped into test cases. I prefer drag and drop any day over typing a method ten times over!

Ranorex recognizes more than just WPF for desktop applications. I've automated everything from .NET, webservices (Html, CSS), Java, PowerBuilder, and mobile devices. The only applications it has a little trouble with is some legacy applications, but what tool doesn't have trouble with that?

What do you like best?
Standard platform that everyone can contribute - manual testers, developers, product managers, technical publications, etc. all have a visual voice into the run configurations that we can regress. It plugs into continuous integration. It plugs into our test repository. It categorizes our object repository. It gives us an OO language to interface and show developers. It reveals things in our application that we can't see and developers forget to tell us. It can do all this from one environment and with one licensing server. You should see our iPad automation! Plug ins, plug ins, plug ins.

"Best Automation Tool I've worked so far"
What do you like best?
There are so many to state: Visual Studio like IDE, Visual Studio compatibility, Source Control Software integration, Object repository (especially Awesome Xpath to make your life easy), practical and affordable licensing, frequent releases (with patches and updates) and finally great/quick support.

What do you dislike?
The test execution result reporting can be better. Though I like Ranorex as a programmer, it is bit difficult for the testers without good programming background.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We use Ranorex for automation of regression test suit. The benefits are reliable automation scripts, cost reduction and quality software delivery.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
