The following new features and improvements are introduced in TestArchitect version 8.1 update 3 running under Windows.


TestArchitect Automation

Enhancements to existing features
  • Each HTML <input> type control is now mapped directly into a unique TA class. (Note: In earlier versions of TestArchitect, this only applied to pre-HTML5 <input> type controls: that is, <input-button>, <input-password>, <input-text>, <input-submit>, <input-checkbox> and <input-radio> were mapped to distinct TA classes; all others were mapped into the general input-text TA class.)
  • If you captured HTML5 <input> type controls in a previous version of TestArchitect, your TA class mappings of those controls are no longer recognized by the current version in its default mode. You have two options:
    1. Recommended: Recapture the controls so that they are mapped into their appropriate TA classes. (For example, remapping an <input-color> control will change its TA class mapping from the legacy input-text class to the new input-color class.)
    2. Leave your legacy mappings intact and set the ignore html input types built-in setting to yes in all tests that interface with HTML5 <input> type controls.
      Note: ignore html input types built-in setting: Determines whether, during the test execution, the TA classes of legacy-captured HTML <input> type controls are taken into consideration.
