Dockerize LeanFT

Step into the world of Docker containers and reap the benefits:

Zero installation. You don't need to set up a LeanFT machine to run a LeanFT test.

Background execution. Run your tests in the background, in a Docker container, and continue to work without distraction.

Execution box. Using one simple command you can run the Docker image, the test, and close the container when the test is done.

CI/CD readiness. Easily integrate LeanFT Docker container into your CI/CD process.

Core functionality enhancements


Use our new reportVerification method in the Reporter class to create custom verifications and add them to your test report.

To learn more, see Create custom verifications and display them in the test report.

Enhanced VRI support

In some cases, Visual Relation Identifiers (VRI) are the most efficient way to identify objects. In this release we have extended VRI support to include Mac and Linux environments, as well as for Identifying objects on mobile applications.

To learn more, see Use Visual Relation Identifiers (VRIs).

New API for launching desktop applications

You can write test code to launch a desktop application using the launchAut method either locally or remotely. This method is available in all LeanFT SDKs.

To learn more, see Run desktop applications using LeanFT SDK.

Application models to object repositories conversion tool

In this version, we've added a command line utility that easily converts LeanFT applications models to UFT object repositories.

LeanFT for Selenium enhancements

Now supported also for JavaScript

The JavaScript SDK extends the WebDriver APIs with additional locators and utilities. By using this SDK you can create more robust or generic identifications for your objects, and use built-in utilities rather than write them yourself from scratch.

To learn more, see LeanFT for Selenium SDK (JavaScript).

New locators

We've enhanced our LeanFT for Selenium SDKs by adding the IsVisible locator, as well as support for regular expressions for the attributes and styles locators.
