Ready to Start Leveraging eCATT? Take Your Existing CATT Tests with You!

Since its introduction in R/3 3.0, SAP customers have come to rely on the Computer Aided Test Tool (CATT) to test their centralized SAP installations and standard UIs. Testing distributed systems, controls-based UIs, and web applications, which are now commonplace in most installations, is a different story. To support these developments, SAP released the extended Computer Aided Test Tool (eCATT) as part of SAP Web Application Server 6.20. But what about all your existing CATT test procedures and modules? This article shows you how to safeguard your current CATT investment and leverage eCATT’s new capabilities by migrating your CATT objects to the new eCATT environment, leaving your CATT objects as-is in 4.6C and calling them remotely from eCATT, or doing both.
