Can one machine run window declaration on an application running on another machine?
I would like to test a Java based web browser (Ice browser) on IBM 4690 POS system. However, the declarations on the IBM machine are different from those I scripted on Windows 2000. That means, I can run the script on the Windows machine smoothly and receive all kinds of error messages including tags, windows not found, and setActive doesn't work on the IBM machine.
I am just wondering is there a way to run the window declaration on win2k then let SilkTest to identify the objects on the IBM 4690? Is there a way to get the declaration on the IBM?
Re: Can one machine run window declaration on an application running on another machine?
As far as I know, you will need to use the recorder (window declarations) to record declarations for the windows on the IBM machine. Chances are you will also need to then edit your code to make things work, because, by default, SilkTest will probably want to name your new IBM declarations the same as the win2k ones (unless someone chose names for those). In either case, you'll need to tweak code and have a way of knowing which OS is executing at runtime.
