Much of your testing effort involves planning and recording VU and GUI scripts. VU and GUI scripts have two parts:A file that can be executed by Robot or by a TestManager suite. You generate a script file when you record your GUI activities or client/server requests with Rational Robot.
Robot translates your GUI activities or client server requests into scripting language commands (SQABasic for GUI activities, VU for client/server requests), and writes them to the script. A set of script properties, such as the type and purpose of the script.
Typically, you define the script's properties when you plan the script with TestManager. You can also define script properties in Robot after you record the script.
