Optimizing and Automating Complex Workloads for Greater IT Efficiency

Optimizing and Automating Complex Workloads for Greater IT Efficiency
Testing teams can often be unhappy with their existing framework due to daily instabilities in execution, resulting in tests hanging or producing false-positive outcomes, leading to significant manual effort post-execution. In 2018, for example, the Workload Automation test team began to prepare for its 9.5 release the following year. This major release brought about a complete redesign of the primary user interfaces. And, such radical change meant that none of the existing test automation assets was usable and that the effort to re-engineer them was significant. The team evaluated updates to their existing Selenium Robot framework, while also looking at Katalon and HCL OneTest, primarily focusing on effort, ease of use and maintainability as the success criteria. Katalon was carefully considered due to its strong out of the box capabilities. However, the team noticed several problems when creating scripts while finding the maintenance effort to be high. Support provided by the community and even third-party vendors, was not enough to satisfy the business-critical requirement for the automation. Hence, HCL OneTest was selected for a pilot program due to its offering of a codeless solution with the added benefits of simple script maintenance and the ability to leverage API and database actions in test scripts. At the conclusion of the pilot program, there were several key findings, including, intelligent object recognition during playback made scripts resilient to changes and easy to maintain. Additionally, the Workload Test Automation team saw a 35% increase in coverage with new tests, and the ability to bridge front and back end components of the application.

Debugging an RT Application in Visual Studio

Debugging an RT Application in Visual Studio
If you are building your RTist application with the Visual Studio compiler, you also need to use the Visual Studio IDE for debugging it. Fortunately, it's very easy to do that. Let's look at the steps needed to use Visual Studio 2017 to debug an executable that has been created with RTist. The first step is to set-up the transformation configuration in RTist so the built executable will contain debug symbols. Open the TC editor and go to the Target Configuration tab. Set $(DEBUG_TAG) in Compile Arguments and /DEBUG in Link Arguments. These two settings are sufficient to be able to debug all generated C++ code. However, if you also need to debug into the TargetRTS code, follow these additional steps. Now you can build your TC as usual to create the executable. The next step is to open the generated project folder in Visual Studio. Right-click the generated CDT project in Eclipse and do Properties. Copy the full path to the project that is shown as Location in the Properties dialog. In Visual Studio do File - Open - Folder and paste the copied path in the dialog. Then close the dialog to open the content of the folder in Visual Studio. If you want you can now set some breakpoints in the generated source code. When you are ready to start debugging, right-click the executable in the Solution Explorer and choose Debug. The application is launched and can now be debugged in Visual Studio. If you need to define command-line arguments, environment variables etc for the debugged application you can use the Debug and Launch Settings command in the context menu of the executable. Choose the Native debugger and edit the launch.vs.json file. For example, to prevent that the debugged application runs under the RTist command-line debugger, set...

Domino Query Language for Domino v11 in Action
With v11, Domino Query Language (DQL) completed its consolidation of all means of searching Domino data, using full-text indices. We discussed and demonstrated this and other vital enhancements — and presented the expansive future of DQL and the problems it can be used to address — in a recent webcast. Attendees asked a lot of questions. We answer them here. Q: Are there any tutorials on DQL?      A: We have published several slide decks and guides. We agree that we should do more to educate developers about the capabilities of DQL. We will publish them here. Q: Is there a possibility to download the slides and demos after this webinar? A: Here is a link to the replay. Q: Are Qbus results updated automatically when a matching document is added to the database?     A: Yes, the result set will contain any documents matching the query. Q: What if the search query contains umlauts (e.g. Müller) or Unicode characters? Is it going to work in v11?     A: Accent sensitive searching will be honored through the FTSearch calls, but not the view or NSF ones in v11.  We have this as a backlog item going forward. Q: Is it possible to search with DQL under a specific Notes view like FTSEARCH? It looks like the research is global to the entire DB. A: Yes, it is possible using the IN clause ANDed with the FTSearch criteria: in ('myview') and lastname contains ('Schmidt', 'Rose*')" Q: Can I query a range date or number for field now with DQL?     A: Yes, it is supported in DQL using View and NSF Scanning. 11.0.1 will support dates and numbers using FTSearch in the future. Q: Are aggregate multi-database searches planned for next release?     A: We're currently working on it and have designs....
