Hope you had a happy Deepavali.
October continued to be busy. We worked towards the next open source release, with lots of fixes and enhancements. Release was made on 3rd Nov. 2010, just before Deepavali. Part of the focus was on better integration with test management tools. A detailed post on integration shall follow. The new build can be downloaded here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/sahi/files/sahi-v3/2010-11-03/sahi_20101103.zip/download
We did a 2 day online training of Sahi for Advance Internet Inc. We also delivered proof of concept of flex automation to a prospective customer in the banking domain. The flex solution does not need re-compilation of flex code, so may be suitable for environments where modifying code may not be possible.
We could not conduct a webinar last month, but we shall be conducting one on 16th Nov. 2010. Click here to join our webinar: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/301637230
We are streamlining the process of support and sales for Sahi Pro online, which should be done by the end of November. Meanwhile, if you have queries on Sahi Pro, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I did get invited to GTAC on the second day, and managed to talk a little about Sahi's object recognition mechanism. But it would have been much better if I had had time for a full presentation on Sahi. We also had discussions with the WebDriver developers to see if we could adopt WebDriver underneath Sahi. Preliminary investigations reveal that we need to wait some time for WebDriver to mature before we can adopt it. Currently WebDriver supports only one instance of IE on a machine, which may work if you had a Google farm at your disposal, but will not work for Sahi's users who are used to running multiple IE instances simultaneously on a single machine.
