Component documentation eCATT: extended Computer Aided Test Tool (BC-TWB-TST-ECA)  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

Purpose

Use extended Computer Aided Test Tool (eCATT) to create and execute functional tests for software. The primary aim is the automatic testing of SAP business processes. Each test generates a detailed log that documents the test process and results.

eCATT enables automatic testing in SAP GUI for Windows and SAP GUI for Java. In order to offer a complete test solution that covers other GUIs, eCATT has interfaces to third party tools.

Implementation Considerations

Test cases usually make database changes. Therefore, you should not normally run them in productive systems.

Caution

In general, do not use eCATT to manipulate data in a productive system: eCATT is a test tool. Instead, use techniques such as Batch Input.

Integration

eCATT can be used with the Test Workbench.

You can migrate test cases from Computer Aided Test Tool (CATT) to take advantage of the better features of eCATT.

eCATT is also integrated with the Object Navigator (SE80).

Features

You can:

        Test transactions, reports, and scenarios

        Call BAPIs and function modules

        Test remote systems

        Check authorizations (user profiles)

        Test updates (database, applications, GUI)

        Test the effect of changes to customizing settings

        Check system messages

Constraints

eCATT runs in a system based on SAP Web Application Server 6.20 or higher. However, you can use this system to test systems with Release 4.6C or higher.

Tutorial

You can find a step by step introduction to eCATT in the eCATT Tutorial.
