Re: [QF-Test] possible to run multiple QFTest instances on a server?

Hi Adesh,

it is possible to a limited degree. There's nothing preventing QF-Test
from running parallel tests on a single desktop but there's going to
be contention for keyboard focus and for the mouse cursor in case you
need hard events.

For the record: Running parallel tests on a single desktop is not
advisable and in many cases it simply won't work. If, however, your
tests are simple enough and appear to run fine in parallel then by all
means go ahead and implement that solution.

The only way to find out whether it works for your tests is to try.

How you start the tests is up to you. You can use Jenkins and run
multiple QF-Test instances in parallel or you can run a QF-Test daemon
and trigger multiple tests there. But before you invest a lot of time
setting up the perfect server you should simply create a bat file to
run multiple tests in parallel via qftest -batch and see how it works.

Of course our support will help trying to tune your tests if
necessary, but I can't make any promises.

Best regards,
