Summary

This chapter provides you with the knowledge necessary to expand your skill set outside of the realm of record and playback test automation. You should now have the knowledge necessary to handle such tasks as synchronizing your script playback with any latency issues your application might face, acquiring data from the Windows Clipboard, manipulating data in test objects, and so on. Further, you should now possess the ability to turn your custom scripting into methods that can be reused across your project.

You should also note that this chapter provides some building blocks for more advanced code-oriented testing. The ability to create reusable methods is a commonplace task for many scripting activities you might find yourself performing in Rational Functional Tester. Further, you might find that creating custom verification points is more valuable, at times, than using the built-in ones. In any case, you should now have the level of comfort to move onto more advanced scripting tasks.
