C applications on Unix (Solaris) systems
User (firstname.lastname@example.org) posted:
I would like to know if anyone has experience using SilkTest (or
QAPartner) on a C application running on a Unix (Solaris) machine.
How does it work ? Are there add-ons to install ? Extension-kit ?
Thanks in advance for your help
Re: C applications on Unix (Solaris) systems
QAP (Silk) for unix and specifically Solaris was designed to test C/C++ applications. As with Windows, there is a specific set of objects that Silk supports out of the box. If your application uses any custom controls you will have to either develop workarounds for these or use the EK to develop methods to use. The EK is essentially the same on motif as it is on windows.
One caveat is to determine whether your application is linked statically or uses shared libraries. If your app uses the former, then you will need to re-link your app with a Segue provided library. Most apps on motif that I've seen over the last few years use shared libraries.
The language is the same on unix as it is for Windows which makes it easier to go from platform to platform.
