We are currently using Katalon 220.127.116.11 and evaluating Katalon 7. Katalon has mentioned one important feature “Smart Wait” and i would like to get answers to my below questions so that i can run my existing test script in V7 which is developed in V6 and see the difference as how “Smart Wait” is making difference. We have given delay at different steps as application behavior is not consistent on page load. Also, when there is more load on system then there are more failures because of delay issue
Is “Smart Wait” Feature available in Free edition of katalon 7?
Currently we have given static delay and dynamic delay (Wait for element clickable, Wait for element visible, verify element present etc). Do we need to remove these delay if we enable “Smart Wait” at Project Level?
Do we also need to remove other delay given at Project Level and just enable “Smart Wait”
How Katalon is handling xpath in 7 as we have seen because of DOM structure change xpath gets changed and automated scripts fails. Other tools (like Provar and TOSCA) use Salesforce meta data to identify element/object and in that case there is no failures.Our automation is mainly for Salesforce
Please answer these questions and also provide guidance to judge difference between 6 and 7 in context of “Smart Wait” and xpath
Thanks with Regards
