New Features

For this patch, we have added the following features:

Distributed Execution: Performance improvements during workspace preparation (since Patch 04)

With this patch, you can deactivate the check whether your TestEvents contain TestSteps that you created with Classic Engines. This reduces the start-up time.

To do so, disable the setting Check for Legacy Steps which is located at Settings->Commander->DistributedExecution.

If you are working with Slim Execution Agents and your TestEvents contain Classic TestSteps, leave this setting turned on. Slim Execution Agents do not support Classic TestSteps.

DB: More effective memory management of the database process (since Patch 03)

With this patch, non connection objects are disposed after the TestStep. This makes the memory management of the database process more effective.

SAP Web Extension 3.0: new Module for steering the search box in SAP Business Client (since Patch 02)

New module is available in the Standard.tce subset to steer the search bar in SAP Business Client.

For detailed information, see chapter "Steer SAP Business Client search box".

API Engine 3.0 sets resource type automatically now (since Patch 01)

The API Engine 3.0 automatically creates LastRequestResource or LastResponseResource TBox resources when sending or receiving messages. Depending on the format (XML/JSON/Text), the resource type is set automatically now.

With this feature, these resources can be loaded directly to a XML or JSON engine TestStep for further processing.

With a new feature of Exploratory Testing Scenario Manager improved the screenshot selection and improved scenario documentation.

Tricentis Analytics: Tricentis Tosca and Tricentis qTest

With this patch, you can see both Tricentis Tosca and Tricentis qTest projects in Tricentis Analytics, if the same user exists in Tricentis Tosca and Tricentis qTest.
