    Re: can a developer hinder object recognition

    Well here is an example of a developer hindering automation. In Java there are several ways that a developer could present text to a user. If they use a label and static text, most tools can easily read the text. If the developer decides using a Pane object and graphically draw the text on the screen, this can present a challenge to a tool to recognize the text.

    can a developer hinder object recognition

    Recently I attended a seminar in which the speaker was discussing how to communicate to developers how to allow effective test automation through their practices.

    One thing the speaker brought up was leaving controls inside of a container declared public. Specifically referring to common GUI test tools not being able to recognize the object because of this. I'm not aware of ways a developer could do this, since GUI controls I now of are bound or registered into the environment. Therefore, I would think they would only be able to encapsulating the control from there own software.

    For work I'm supposed to be documenting what I learned from this seminar for others to use but I don't know to describe this section.

    Does my background not cover an example of where this occurs. My background includes approximately 5 years testing and/or developing, with knowledge of Java, Python, the VBs, C/C++, windows and unix system calls,... some others

    Re: can a developer hinder object recognition

    Yes, I also had that case in Java. I had to test an AUT that was not based on the Java AWT (or any other recognized) framework (but on Zaval Lightweight Framework, online-demo at http://lwvcl.com/online-demo.php ), so everything WinRunner (the tool we use for automated testing) could "see" was a big Panel that contained all objects (buttons, tables, ...) displayed on the mask.

    Possible solutions: Either writing/buying some customization on the Java Add-In for WinRunner or writing analog scripts (clicking on x/y-coordinates, ...).
    We took the 2nd solution, but with some Java methods (e.g. getChildren(), getComponentAt(), ...) it was possible to keep the scripts stable through several versions of the AUT.

    Regards,
    Juergen
