Enabling simplified scripting

Simplified scripts are functional test scripts in the form of simple English statements that are easy to understand and edit. When you record actions on the test application using the recorder, the functional test script is generated and displayed as a simplified test script in the Script editor.

Before you begin

Note: This feature is enabled by default in the HCL OneTest™ UI Preferences window. You can override this setting for an individual script by selecting Java Scripting from the Select Mode list in the Record a Functional Test Script dialog box when you record the script.


  1. Click Window > Preferences.
  2. In the Preferences window, click Functional Test > Simplified Scripting.
  3. Select Enable Simplified Scripting.
    Note: With the simplified scripting feature enabled, you can view the corresponding Java test script in the Java script editor and also work with the Java scripting.
  4. Click Apply, and then click OK.
