This paper describes how to use the macro system in the Dexterity runtime to record test cases for use in regression testing.

  • This document explains how to use the macro system provided by the Dexterity runtime to record test cases for your integrating application. After the test cases have been recorded, they can be used for regression testing. In regression testing, the macros are played back on future builds of your integrating application to verify that it is still functioning properly.

    This document does not explain how to write test cases. Instead, it focuses on how to use the macro system to record test cases so that regression testing can be automated. Topics covered include:
    • Starting Data
