Development Roadmap

About

This roadmap document outlines the functionality planned for the future releases of Rapise. We are responsive to feedback so the contents of each individual release will be subject to change.

Releases will also include lower level enhancements and bug fixes. We do not provide a public list of open bugs or enhancement requests at this time.

If you have any feedback or suggestions regarding this roadmap, please email us at support@inflectra.com.

Version 8.0 (Q2 2023)

  • Framework 2.0
    • Improved framework structure with test cases, test case folders, shared modules/page objects and scripts
    • Import, rename, move test cases in Object Tree
    • Simplified way of defining parameters and configurations
    • Easy way of defining test sets
    • Put whole framework into Spira with a single button click: automatic creation of test cases and test sets
    • Fast way of storing framework files in Spira
    • PageObject pattern support. Allow to define global objects with own object repository re-usable across test cases. Also may be used to cover API entry points.

Q3 and Q4 2023

  • SAP desktop GUI support
  • GutHub Actions - run Rapise tests as a step of GitHub CI/CD workflow
  • FileCompare - add FileCompare UI to assist with adding file checkpoints on recording, updating checkpoints and analyzing differences after execution for files (txt, PDF, doc, JSON, csv) and text fields of runtime objects (Window text, Object Value).
  • Hierarchical test execution status report
  • Include RVLMerge into setup, RVLMerge is used to see the differences between RVL files
  • Enable JS Formatter/Beautifier for JS Editor to simplify code formatting

2024

We will continue to work on deep integration between Rapise, Spira and Git. The focus is on simplicity of building test frameworks and execution of tests. Also as usual we will keep up-to-date our support for selected CRM/ERP systems: Microsoft Dynamics family of products, Salesforce, Oracle and SAP.
