Build

This page controls the activities that are performed when the Build Process is initiated for a Unified Functional Testing project.

General Settings

The following general settings are available:

Property Description
Build startup script Indicates if the Startup Script defined on the HPE UFT Page should be rebuilt with current settings.
Create object repository XML export shadow copies When selected, all object repositories will automatically be exported to XML. This is useful to always have a backup of your file in the event the binary data is corrupt. It is also beneficial to provide object repository-based IntelliSense on machines without Unified Functional Testing installed. TSR and BDB files will be exported using the same base file name and TSRX and BDBX extensions respectively.
Note:   This option is only available when at least QuickTest Pro version 9.2 or higher is installed on the machine executing the build process. Otherwise it is ignored.
Generate documentation Utilizes the Documenter to build documentation for the project based on the information defined on the Documenter Page.

Test Processing

When the Build Process is initiated, all tests that are part of the project can be processed with the options below.

Tip:    You can exclude a file from processing by setting the Build Action property in the Properties tool window to None.
Note:    Test Processing is only available on machines that have Unified Functional Testing installed because the Unified Functional Testing API is required to make these modifications.

Property Description
Associate function libraries All libraries in the project will be associated to every test to ensure that functions from those libraries are available.
Associate object repositories to actions All object repositories in the project will be associated to each action of every test to ensure object are available.
Update required add-ins Ensure the necessary add-ins for every test are property configured based on the addin selection on the HPE UFT Page.
Use relative paths for file references When possible, paths for file references will be relative to the location of the test from which it is referred.
