General Information

Ranorex is a Windows GUI test automation framework which provides seamless testing of a wide range of desktop, web and mobile applications. As every robust test automation project requires reliable user interface object recognition, Ranorex focuses on providing the best possible recognition for all types of desktop, web and mobile software applications. Ranorex’s award winning object recognition relies on smart RanoreXPath technology – RanoreXPath reduces effort in maintaining tests and at the same time simplifies the testing of dynamically built user interfaces.

 Few comments from LinkedIn

 I've been evaluating Ranorex recently. I have 6 yrs experience with QTP and have architected solutions using QTP, C#, VBScript Libraries and SQL drivers.
 Ranorex seems pretty good. It is great to have a full programming language at your fingertips, with try-catch, inheritance, class modules, etc. It takes a while to come up to speed in terms of best practices, organizing projects and solutions, passing arguments between scripts, recorded scripts vs modules, using ranorex tags vs xpath elements, etc. Also, you have to sort of roll your own data drivers and reporting tools. That being said, the support is great, and the tool is quite capable.
 I'm leaning towards purchasing the product for use internally at my company. I'll be able to share some libraries with the dev team, in terms of support modules for reporting and data driving (they will be using nunit). We are primarily targeting ASP.NET\C# web apps with no big time commercial controls (we're using DHX grids and windows).
 I've evaluated TestComplete twice, at 2 different companies. also, we're currently using SmartBear's ALMComplete.... however, I have quickly dismissed TestComplete each time and moved onto other tools.
 QTP is great, especially if you don't have great development skills on your team. A lot of functionality out of the box, and a great deal of work is abstracted away from the user (reporting, data driving, global configuration data, parameter passing). I can do pretty much anything I want with QTP, and have extensive libraries developed over time for web based testing, file system manipulation, office automation, etc. However, there's the cost and error handling considerations. Also, no 'run time' version, limited support (but, a lot of good forums) and HP has eliminated the free test driver called MultiTest Manager. I have integrated QTP with ApTest Manager and Bugzilla, creating a Quality Center like suite for little effort. Also, there are a lot of people who claim to be QTP engineers (be careful, many simply run scripts from Quality Center, they don't develop!), so a large pool of potential employees. But, it's VBScript, node locked and difficult to integrate into the automated build process.

give Ranorex a decent shake... if you don't buy it, you'll at least be impressed with what it can do.

We were also using Ranorex from Last 2 years and their customer support was first class as Scott said and also we can develop tests in or C#.Net.We can play with the Objects in Ranorex using RXPath(Ranorex Path). (By Linkedin member Naga Sham N)
