So where is everyone going once this closes shop in March?

My team has already jumped to Testim.io and honestly I’m loving it (I don’t have to automate mobile apps so that feature isn’t a big deal, but it’s coming to Testim in the near future from what I hear. ). I mentioned it months ago that this is a dead end software and people didn’t want to believe me, yet here we are. I heart goes out to the teams that will have to rebuild thousands of test regardless of the application you decide on, you have my sympathy and I hope it’s a mostly painless transition.

Happy Trails

We are on a shortlist with another vendor to try their mobile testing solution when they release it. Until then, I’m going to be watching this thread for recommendations.

I am looking for a mobile solution as well.

Anyone has any idea if existing tests could be imported in other tools like Katalon if i export the current project in Java ? I tried to import it, but i don’t see any solution when it comes to libraries/addons/packages related to test project used by the java files.

I am considering also cypress or playwright, but this would require rewriting everything from scratch which is very time consuming.

Any suggestion would be more than welcome. And good luck everyone!

Currently considering accelq and testsigma since I need mobile testig

Hi @mshiamma. You can also export to C# or Python. The result is almost pure selenium or appium except when you are using addons. Please read this TestProject documentation for more information.

Hi @sboehm. Testim will launch mobile testing features soon! Sneak peek

Hi @btovar. Testim will launch mobile testing features soon! Sneak peek

Really sad! I also liked TestProject a lot…
Having used a few other programs, I must say that repeato.app appears to be an excellent substitute. They provide no-code test recording, integrate with all of the popular CI/CD pipelines (such as Bitrise, Github Actions, etc.), and also provide a free subscription.

Our company read the writing on the walls earlier this year and have been trying to move to Robot Framework. Whether it works or not, we do know that we’ll be staying away from any Tricentis products.

We have a web application. We tested out

  • Selenium
  • Cypress
  • Testim
  • WebdriverIO
  • Protractor
  • Playwright

Winner by far was Playwright (stable, fast, parallelism, CI/CD integrations, well documented, good support). Cypress came in as second, the reason is their trade-offs. The cost is the cost of time spent creating and maintaining the tests, it’s open-source as is Cypress and Selenium.

The test recorder (“codegen”) of Playwright is not, and probably will never be as good as TestProjects, but at the end of the day it wasn’t a problem.

For API testing we use Postman.

Curious if anyone has tested out Katalon? It seems to have a lot of good features similar to Test Project but I understand it’s written almost on it’s own code base or something?

I tested katalon for a few weeks and felt it was cumbersome for no good reason. It took a few meetings with their engineers to solve a very basic interaction with our web application. I’d say the best way for me to describe it is archaic in it’s use to me. Others may feel differently and their applications may respond differently with the tool.

It definitely has an older feel to it since it’s a desktop App, but I do like the way it seems fairly easy to duplicate/change steps in the app / add delays etc. I also like that the UI components are all on easy display for me to tweak. We have an application built on a super old-school UI framework where the ID’s are generated on load (so change everytime the page is re-loaded) which makes latching onto elements super annoying!

I might try out Playwright also as per Wilho’s suggestion
