TPTP and GUI Testing [message #27069] Tue, 23 August 2005 09:08 Go to next message

Hello,

I want to build an automated GUI testing tool (based on SWT). The
application is supposed to capture the events executed on the GUI
elements, store the test sequences that can later on be used to verify if
those test sequences are still executable and end with the same result in
the current state of the application. Can anyone tell me if TPTP offers
ways to solve that problem? Does anyone have any experience in that area?

I'm glad for all comments,
Thorsten

I don't know about what TPTP offers or plans here, as at least my
question in that direction was left completely unanswered ;)

Have you had a look at Abbot? There had been some work going on by IBM
to make Abbot work with SWT, as far as I know. Their capturing
application is called Costello or something like that, but I think that
one doesn't work yet with SWT.

I have been working on an Automated GUI tester for the past month or so that
does exactly what you are interested in. The item will be introduced as a
tech preview shortly (hopefully within this week or the next). I would wait
until this tool is introduced as a tech preview before going about to create
your own duplicate of the tool.



Thanks,



Ali M.

That sounds really good. But I have some more requirements for the tool.
We have built our own Eclipse RCP and want to integrate the tester into
our platform (as a plugin if possible). So the tester has to capture GUI
tests within the RCP. Will your tool provide these features as well?

Thanks,
Thorsten

The tool records UI events by registering a listener with a display
instance. There are some macro commands that are specific to the Eclipse
workbench (there is actually only one). In theory, the recorder should
integrate easily under a rich client platform, but the runner is launched
via the test execution harness (much like all other test tool runners). It
may thus be a challenge to integrate the entire plug-in under RCP. This
will be investigated further once the tool becomes more stable. At the time
being, I recommend using the recorder and writing your own light version of
the runner.



Thanks,

Ali Mehregani
