Multi-Language tests with AGR [message #128094] Mon, 07 April 2008 18:11 Go to next message

Hi all,

I am new to eclipse and java in general, I am looking into the
Automation GUI Recorder for GUI automation for our product, which is
multi-platform and multi-languages. As AGR recognizes some of the
components (such as menus) by Text Strings, I was wondering is there
anyway to parameterized the macro in the XML files or changed the
recognition to using other attributes that does not get affected by
localization.

Thank you in advance
Ivan

Sorry for the delayed reply.

There are a few quick suggestions you may want to consider:

First, you might want to try position based recording using the AGR, with
the caveat that the machines you will be using for running the tests have
the same display size and application window size.

Secondly, you obviously could do a separate recording to pickup the GUI
objects on a machine with each language, which would be rather tedious.

Third, you could datapool all the strings from the recorded macros and
create a separate datapool for each language with the right data in it.

You may want to experiment a bit with each approach on some simple tests
and see which of these work best for you.
