Rational® Functional Tester General page

You use the Rational® Functional Tester General page to set all product time options. These options are useful to accommodate different computer speeds.

The General page has the following controls:

Limit Record/Playback to StartApp applications only: Select this option to limit the recording and playing back to StartApp application only.

Automatic enablement: Automatic enablement is activated by default. Deselect the checkbox if you want to statically enable each test environment. This is useful for improving the performance of tests.

Multiply all time options by: Enter any real number by which you want to multiply all Rational® Functional Tester preferences or options that take an amount of time as an argument. For example, enter .5 to make all Rational® Functional Tester time options twice as fast. This option affects all the following controls:
