Need to create automated regression test scripts for desktop application UI created with PowerBuilder 2017. Is there any automated testing tool with out of the box support for PowerBuilder 2017?

A number of tools... HP UFT (formerly QTP), IBM Rational Functional Tester, SmartBear TestComplete, Zeenyx AscentialTest, etc.

The latest version of SmartBear Test Complete is not working anymore with PB. Our customer provided a sample case to SmartBear but they can't find a solution. If you need the lasted version of Test Complete because you e.g. need to automate browsers as well this is a dead end.

We experiment some issues using new Powerbuilder 2017 and our testing tool HPE Unified Functional Testing (UFT).

Here is an example of differences in HPE UFT vision, after compilation, on TreeView objects with the same powerbuilder code.

New version

PbWindow("PbWindow").WinObject("PBTreeView32_100").Click 13,42

PbWindow("PbWindow").WinObject("PBTreeView32_100").DblClick 88,74

Treeview entry name is missing, we obtain only click position


Old versions

PbWindow("w_mainwindow").PbTreeView("tv_menu").Expand "Market"

PbWindow("w_mainwindow").PbTreeView("tv_menu").Activate "Market;Deal Capture"

We were able to get the entry names in old versions and our testing scripts are build using those entries.

As far as I understood, there is no successful case related to PB desktop apps automation, right?
