Certify and Generic Objects
Has anyone used 'Generic Objects' with Certify?
Could you give me a quick run-down on how a 'Generic Object' works? Is it fairly painless?
**If you have Certify and have never heard of a 'Generic Object' then you probably have never nor will ever need it. (Lucky)
Re: Certify and Generic Objects
What type of application are you testing against with Certify? Are you using a 3rd party tool interface (Silk, WinRunner, Robot) to drive the application under test?
Basically what the 'Generic Object' gives you is is a way to handle unknown/classified objects in the GUI (Certify or the 3rd party test tool cannot map it to a known object class). What you can do is either 'Alias' the object to a known type (if it acts like a pushbutton you map it to be treated like a pushbutton), or customize the underlying code (tool framework) object support code for the 'Object' class to specifically handle it.
Either way you will need to some customization to get what you need. Good luck.
