    Mozilla, XML and test automation

    I'm evaluating an XML/Java-Based application and have to make a strategy recommendation for test automation.

    Does anyone have any experiences in this environment that they would share? (I found an old post from July, but no responses.)

    I'm most familiar with Silk, but all it sees are Netscape Browser Class custom windows.

    Thanks

    Re: Mozilla, XML and test automation

    Just to get you right...

    Are you stating that all you see inside of Netscape is Custom Classes (when pointing to the Java or XML objects)? or Is all you're seeing Custom Objects?

    SilkTest and WinRunner both support Java (WinRunner just recently and may not be all previous versions and different flavors of it) but on your XML question I really don't know simply because I have not tried it.

    Re: Mozilla, XML and test automation

    The app is stand-alone and does not run in a browser. (That might come later.) All I see are a bunch of nested CustomWins of class NetscapeWindowClass1, 2 and 3.

    I'm also investigating JavaStar while JavaScript is another option.

    Thanks for your help.

    Recorded window declarations are below:

    [+] window DialogBox Site
    [ ] tag "Site"
    [+] CustomWin NetscapeWindowClass1
    [ ] msw tag "[NetscapeWindowClass]$0"
    [+] CustomWin NetscapeWindowClass1
    [ ] msw tag "[NetscapeWindowClass]$0"
    [+] CustomWin NetscapeWindowClass2
    [ ] msw tag "[NetscapeWindowClass]$0[2]"
    [+] CustomWin NetscapeWindowClass1
    [ ] msw tag "[NetscapeWindowClass]$0"
    [+] CustomWin NetscapeWindowClass1
    [ ] msw tag "[NetscapeWindowClass]$0"
    [+] ScrollBar ScrollBar1
    [ ] tag "$0[1]"
    [+] ScrollBar ScrollBar2
    [ ] tag "$0[2]"
    [+] CustomWin NetscapeWindowClass2
    [ ] msw tag "[NetscapeWindowClass]$0[2]"
    [+] CustomWin NetscapeWindowClass1
    [ ] msw tag "[NetscapeWindowClass]$0[1]"
    [+] CustomWin NetscapeWindowClass1
    [ ] msw tag "[NetscapeWindowClass]$0[1]"
    [+] CustomWin NetscapeWindowClass1
    [ ] msw tag "[NetscapeWindowClass]$0"
    [+] CustomWin NetscapeWindowClass1
    [ ] msw tag "[NetscapeWindowClass]$0"

    Re: Mozilla, XML and test automation

    1st of all, Do you mind if I move this topic to SilkTest, I think it's SilkTest related more of just a general QA Topic.

    2nd of all. I believe you have a Setup problem.

    Have you setup SilkTest with Netscape as a Default Browser and Java Compatabilty on?
    I cannot give you a step by step on how to do that, but you may want to read the manuals on how to do this.

    Last, next time you would like to paste code, follow these steps:

    in you message type:
    [c o d e]
    paste your code here
    [/c o d e]

    taking out the spaces between the letters
    the result will look like this:
    and this enabled you to copy the code as it originally was intended.

    Re: Mozilla, XML and test automation

    I have tried it both with and without Netscape as the default browser. Java is enabled as far as I can tell in the Extensions dialog.

    No, I don't mind if you move this to the Silk forum.

    Thanks for the code tip. I'll do better next time.

    BTW, a query into Mozilla.org did get a quick response. They're using javascript to automate their testing. They evaluated QAP/Silk but determined that it was not feasible in their environment. Thanks to Beth Epperson for this info.
