      Hi Amitha,

      Thank you so much for reaching out to us, could you please provide more details about your query, as what you want to do ? / Why do you need to modify xpath that is stable?

  • Hi Srini,

    In my case, I want to modify the XPath mostly because of frequetly changes in ID or Name.
    How could I use the regular expression or other mechanisms to handle such issues?

  • Hi Srinivas ,

    Can we perform parallel execution of script using OATS same like we have Grid feature available in Selenium ?

      Hi Yugandhara,

      yes, there is something called Oracle Test Manager, where you can configure multiple nodes and trigger parallel executions

      Thank you,

  • Hello,

    Can you please describe how to create hierarchy of objects as we can in UFT ?

    • Author

      I think, it creates in a hierarchy by default when you are using Object Library to record a script or spy and add objects to Object Library.. Are you experiencing something different? if so could you please share a link where we can see the image of the Object Library expanded and give some explanation as what you are looking for
