6. Benefit of using Global Web Page?

Answer:  While interrogating a webpage there is a interrogator popup having different interrogation options. Beneath that checkbox is available to create global webpage. When interrogating web applications that contain multiple frames, you can use the Create Global Web Page option to assign the interrogated objects to an independent global page. This is required when objects in a frame can exist on various pages within the web site, depending on the user’s interaction with the site. This feature should also be used when there are different versions of Internet Explorer in your environment. If not used then interrogator also interrogate the IE controls like address bar, button etc. So, when same automation will be launched in different version of IE will be failed.

 8. What is HookChildProcesses in OpenSpan?

Answer:  The HookChildProcesses property applies when one application starts other applications and the spawned applications are required for the solution. In this case, you have one application that launches another, that may in turn launch another, and so on. Each of the applications will require some interaction via an OpenSpan solution. Therefore, OpenSpan must hook into each application process. Unlike where you are only interested in interacting with the final target process (i.e.,TargetPath application), here you set the HookChildProcesses property to enable OpenSpan to work with the starting application and each Windows application starting afterward.

An example is where a user launches a single sign-on application. Once the user completes the sign-on, each business application is signed into and launched. If the solution will be interacting with each of the business applications, OpenSpan must inject code into all of the application processes. To support this scenario, set the Path property to the path and file name of the application that initiates the launch process and set the HookChildProcesses property to True…..
