HCL OneTest™ UI overview
HCL OneTest™ UI is an object-oriented automated functional testing tool that tests HTML, including HTML 5, Java, Windows, .NET, Visual Basic, SAP, Silverlight, Eclipse, Siebel, Flex, Ajax, Dojo, GEF and PowerBuilder applications. With its ability to test HTML 5-based applications and UI frameworks, HCL OneTest UI also tests the user interface of Web applications on the desktop and on mobile devices.
Task flow for Setting up HCL OneTest™ UI
The diagram in this topic shows the task flow for setting up HCL OneTest™ UI.
Creating a project
The tests that you create, and the assets associated with the tests, reside in a project on your desktop. You can create the project separately, or you can simply record a test, which automatically creates a project named testproj.
Getting started in the UI Test perspective
With the UI Test perspective, you can find information and task flows to create and run functional tests for web applications.
Getting started in the Functional Test perspective
With the Functional Test perspective, you can find information and task flows to create and run functional tests for native or hybrid applications.
Task flow for integrating HCL OneTest™ UI and HCL OneTest™ API
You can run integration tests in HCL OneTest™ UI by using HCL OneTest UI Extension for HCL OneTest API. In HCL OneTest UI, you can create a compound test to run the integration tests by using agents.
You can learn to start using HCL OneTest™ UI by reviewing the information in the Tutorials for the UI Test perspective and Functional Test perspective.
Tutorials for testing in the UI Test perspective
You can use the tutorials to get started with testing in the UI Test perspective in HCL OneTest™ UI.
Tutorials for testing in the Functional Test perspective
You can use the tutorials to get started with testing in the Functional Test perspective in HCL OneTest™ UI.
You can find the sample project that you can use with HCL OneTest™ UI to test the functionality of an application.
Sample project to test a Java application
The sample functional test project is created using the first few lessons of the "Create a functional test" tutorial . You can look at the test assets while you do the tutorial or after you complete it.
A HCL OneTest™ UI project to test an HTML application
This is a sample functional test project that contains various functional test scripts for testing an HTML application. In this sample project, the IBM® Rational® Team Concert™ web client is used as an application under test.
Functional testing proxy SDK technology samples
Functional testing proxy SDK samples are simple examples of proxy source code and applications under test (AUT).
This guide describes how to install HCL OneTest™ UI software. After you install the software, you can perform administration tasks such as license configuration and integration with other products. This guide is intended for administrators.

Starting HCL OneTest™ UI from the command line
You can start HCL OneTest™ UI from the desktop environment or a command-line interface.
Integrations in UI Test perspective
In this section, you will learn about the supported integrations for the Web UI Test perspective.
Integrations in Functional Test perspective
In this section, you will learn about the supported integrations for the Functional Test perspective.
This guide describes how to create test scripts and enhances them by applying different test elements such as dataset, variables, and verification points.
Testing in the UI Test perspective
When you develop web applications, Windows-based applications, or mobile applications, you can use HCL OneTest™ UI to create functional tests for these applications. You must first record the tests and then use HCL OneTest UI to run the tests before you can view the test results.
Testing in the Functional Test perspective
When you develop Java, HTML, or Terminal-based applications, you can use HCL OneTest™ UI to create traditional functional tests for these applications. You must first record the tests and then use HCL OneTest UI to run the tests before you can view the test results.
Extending the UI Test perspective with custom code
You can use custom code to extend the default Web UI testing capabilities. You can write custom Java™ code and call the code from the test. You can also specify that results from the tests that are affected by your custom code to be included in reports.
Extending the Functional Test perspective
You can use custom code to extend the default functional testing capabilities. You can write custom code and call the code from the test. You can also specify that results from the tests that are affected by your custom code to be included in reports.
Experimental Features
HCL OneTest™ UI contains a set of pre-releases that enable you to test various experimental features. These experimental features, while still in progress, are introduced early in the release to seek your feedback on its overall functionality and performance. You can play around with these capabilities before they are made available and supported as a general feature in an upcoming release.
This guide describes how to automate the playback of the tests by using different methods such as Docker, IBM Cloud Private, Jenkins and so on. The test results can be pushed to HCL® Quality Server.
Configuration of test runs from the UI Test perspective
When you create Web UI, mobile, or Windows tests, you must configure the play back of the recorded tests as test runs from the UI Test perspective before you can view their test results.
Configuration of test runs from the Functional Test perspective
When you created functional tests, you must configure the run of the recorded functional tests from the Functional Test perspective before you can view the test results.
This guide describes how to keep track of the performance of the application by evaluating the test results. Following topics cover how you can work with the test results.
Publishing test result to HCL OneTest™ Server
The test result indicate the quality of the application under test. There could be different stakeholders to the application who do not have the product installed but want to check the quality of application. You, as the user of the product, can publish the test result to HCL OneTest™ Server so that others can view it from the web browser.
Publishing specific results to the server
If you have a single test result or multiple test results that are not published to HCL OneTest™ Server, you can publish a single or all of them simultaneously.
Unified reports
Unified reports in HCL OneTest™ UI provide a detailed overview of the test results. Unified reports also provide an extensive user interface that you can use to analyze or apply filters on the test results.
