Ranorex has its own IDE, Ranorex Studio. It seems that Ranorex does not integrate into Visual Studio very well. The only available Ranorex blog entry describes the bare minimum of compiling a Ranorex script in Visual Studio. It does not offer the full functionality such as recording new objects into the repository, recording tests etc. Also, perhaps I can't reuse my VS Plugins in Ranorex Studio (related question).

For the following 2 reasons I don't want to miss Visual Studio:

Therefore I'm looking for an alternative to Ranorex that integrates into Visual Studio. Unfortunately we have the full technology mix, so it must

  • support SAP
  • support Java applications
  • support Browsers (Firefox and IE at least)
  • support C# Winforms and WPF
  • support Win32 applications

at the same time. This e.g. rules out Silk Test which cannot identify SAP controls and Win32 controls in one session (we have a license and that's actually the reason why I'm looking for something else).

It must work on Windows and needn't support mobile applications. At the moment I don't care about the price. Commercial support must be available.

  • I know. And I said: "It does not offer the full functionality such as recording new objects into the repository, recording tests etc." That's why I asked the question. – Thomas Weller Jan 16 '18 at 8:35

CodedUI seems to be the only solution. Because Coded UI is the new testing framework from Microsoft so,it will 100% support the visual studio too. And;

  • support SAP-No idea
  • support Java applications-Yes
  • support Browsers (Firefox and IE at least)-Yes
  • support C# Winforms and WPF-Yes
  • support Win32 applications-Yes

So because of above explanations i think CodedUI will be the best solution.
