Introduction

The SAP Business One SDK is a very powerful tool that gives plenty of capabilities to interact with the B1 business logic and with the B1 application itself. Using all these capabilities programmers can modify the standard behavior and user interface of B1 by using standard development environments.

As SAP Business One desktop is based on proprietary technology; automation testing tools for this technology are then necessary to align to SW development best practices and ensure high quality solutions at a reasonable cost.

SAP Business One Test Composer (B1TC) covers this necessity by providing the following functionality:

  • Record a sequence of operations on the B1 desktop together with a set of checking points,

  • Save it in some persistent format,

  • Generate an STD (Software Test Document) in plain English,

  • Replay a saved sequence while verifying the satisfaction of the defined checking points in real time or scheduled.

B1TC can be then a very valuable support during several phases of a solution lifetime, from the initial unit tests, to regression tests, integration and support.
