Like I said I'm very new to WinRunner.
I draw all my experance from Robot.
Well I'm having a problem with my web/Java Applet application.
I'm looking for hints/tricks that will need to be done with a web based java application.
I never had to work too much with applets. After I installed the java add in it preety much worked.
Java apps can be trickier esp when it comes to classpath. If it isn't too much trouble please do post whatever the problem eventually turned out to be. We could all really learn a good deal from your experiance.
Getting the Java Add-in correctly installed and integrated with WinRunner is laborious. Then you need to get a WinRunner supplied jar into the CLASSPATH def [or so I remember; its been about 10 months since I did this with version 6.x]. Carefully follow the special user's guide that comes with the Java Add-In to achieve these steps.
One of the pitfalls: the instructions they provide assume that the CLASSPATH is statically defined [for example in your autoexec.bat file, or the the NT environment settings]. This is often not the case when the Java app you want to test is started up with a batch file [quite common]. In that situation the batch file often defines the CLASSPATH for the lifetime of the batch files execution; if this is the case you need to modify the batch file's CLASSPATH as well.
