Chandran,
I'm going to move this to "IDE's and other tools" since it seems to be more appropriate for your question. The folks there quite fun and have lots of great information.

I guess people here don't use WinRunner. What do you want to use it for? Perhaps we can suggest an alternative.

OK, so you want to test your GUI applications. Do you already have a set of low-level unit tests in place for the internals? GUI testing is so difficult (and can be so expensive) that it's vital that you test as much as you can at the internal API level, and have the the GUI parts of the code as "thin" as possible to minimize the amount of GUI testing required.
What sort of GUI operations do you want to test? Are you expecting to do screen-scrape text comparisons, complete "must look like this" bitmap comparisons? or just robotically issue GUI events and check for compliance some other way (scanning internal log files, or comparing data in a database, for example).
Please describe your application and your testing strategy in a bit more detail

Well, from a theoretical point of view, you can never test anything "completely". All you can hope for is enough test coverage to reassure you that the code you have written will do its job.
Please do let us know a bit more about the structure of your application. How much GUI code is there in comparison to how much internal code, for example? Can any of your internal classes be tested individually? What sort of GUI do you have - is it mostly buttons and indicators, does it have a lot of text areas or dynamically generated graphics etc.?
There is no "silver bullet" to testing, even though some of the expensive solution vendors would like to convince you that there is. The only practical solution is to build software from lots of small pieces each of which can be "unit tested" in isolation. Only when you have tested all the small pieces should you move on to testing them aggregated together into larger components and eventually whole applications.

Thank U very much Frank!!
Sorry.I can't able to clear U'r Questions.Since we are expecting that project this week(Only Testing).I don't know about that more.Moreover I'm the only person askef to do that.That's why I'm in Tension.Without knowing anything about application I want to keep me fit to face that one.
Hope U Now understood my situation.pls Don't regret me after this.I downloaded parasoft product.But it is licensed version.I downloaded etest tool.But it needs IE 5.5 or higher.Now I'm installing 5.5 .
Like this,If U know any tools to test class files inform me.But one thing I'm sure.We are going to buy winrunner testing tool.That's why I asked about winrunner first.It checks for class file.So only I changed my post asking any testing tool like winrunner to check the class files.
Thankx very Much once again to listening me
