Using Pilot Mix-Ins
Examining Pilot Run Results
7. To locate Pilots to add to the scenario, select the Pilot check box, and then click
8. To add all of the Pilots found, click Accept. To add a subset of the Pilots found,
, select the Pilots to add, and then click Accept.
9. To specify the order of steps in the script segments that the lead Pilot generates,
select each Pilot listed, and then use the Up and Down buttons.
10. To run the Pilot scenario on your local machine, click the lead Pilot in the
application map, and then click Start at the bottom of the Pilot properties page.
Using Pilot Mix-Ins to Test Random Interactions
A Pilot mix-in is useful for testing how functional areas of the AUT interact when
you combine them randomly. For example, if the AUT is a word processing
application, and you want to test how the AUT responds when
the spell checker is
used occasionally during an editing session, you can insert Pilots that access the
functional areas that you want to test, and combine them in a mix-in.
You can also add a mix-in Pilot to a scenario. As part of a scenario, a mix-in is a useful
way to include a step that a user might occasionally perform in the course of an
otherwise predictable action sequence. For instance, if you created a scenario Pilot
for the customer tracking AUT, you could mix in a Pilot for a Delete Customer
Record dialog box that a user would only open infrequently.
NOTE: To achieve results that are easy to track and analyze, we recommend
that you include no more than five to eight Pilots in a scenario.
