Mr. Tiede said during the Eclipsecon 2015

...tests "through" the UI entering through the whole application stack down to the database systems, application server that lie behind that often hold the logic.

How is that possible? Any examples...or thoughts..ideas...

Thanks in advance

Hello Michael,

When we refer to testing through the UI, what we mean is that the actions triggered via clicks / text entries etc are the same as when a user does them. So if clicking "save" triggers a database job, then this will also be triggered by clicking save in Jubula.
If I understand you correctly, your question is about testing things that are not visible in the UI.

If this is the case, then you can do the following:
- check properties of components and items in the UI using the check property actions
- execute methods on components and the application (since beta release 8.2.1)
- perform "execute external command" to call scripts you have written yourself, e.g. to check database tables
- write extensions or functions that will let you check things behind the UI

Hope this helps!
