Tosca Commander is the tool's central component for creating, managing, executing, and analyzing test scripts. Tosca Commander is divided into five pieces, each employed in most projects.
We need to scan the application and construct modules (object maps) to automate test automation. The old model of application scans is Tosca wizard. It can also be opened from the Commander as a standalone component.
The Tosca Executor program is used to run Tosca test cases. This is an alternative to opening the Tosca commander to test execution. We can access the Tosca executor through the Windows start menu: Tosca Executor can be found in Start-> All Programs-> Tricentis.
External shared repositories/databases, such as Oracle, SQLServer, SQLite, and others, can be used to store test cases. In Tosca, test data can also be stored in an external repository using processes like TDM – Test Data Management and TDS – Test Data Service. Several testers can work simultaneously with the help of the test repository.

Tosca has two different automation frameworks for recognizing controls and creating modules. One of them is the TBox framework and the other one is the Classic framework.
The Tosca TBox framework is used to power UI and non-UI programs like XBrowser, GUI, API, XML, and others. It was written in C#.
All other apps that aren't supported by the TBox framework are built using the classic framework. Windows 32, Excel, and other programs are among them. The visual Basic script is used to create the traditional engine.
Next, let’s discuss in-depth more about the TBox framework.
TBox is one of the several frameworks in Tosca that aid with control identification. This framework is the foundation for all engines that test graphical and non-graphical user interfaces. The Tosca TBox framework can guide UI and non-UI applications such as a browser. C# is the programming language used.
All other apps not accepted by the TBox framework use the classic framework as their foundation. Win 32, Excel, and other programs are among them. In the VB script, the classic engine is written. The TBox framework is compelling. It provides additional functionalities such as business recovery in its standard installation.
The TBox framework offers numerous benefits detailed below.
