Plugins and Extensions

UI Testing

Web Browser UI Testing

GUI Testing

  • GUI Browser: Common Extension for GUI Tests
    This extension provides a base for the other UI technology interfaces, and is a prerequisite (included in) the Java GUI, Mobile GUI, Qt and Windows Automation GUI plugins.
  • UI Testing via VNC
    This plugin interfaces to arbitrary applications via VNC (RFB). This allows for any application to be tested. However, the set of verifiable attributes is very limited. Therefore, this is mostly used as a fallback solution, in case no other UI-plugin is applicable.
  • UI Testing von OpenETS Anwendungen
    This plugin interfaces to Applications using the OpenETS UI framework. OpenETS ("Open Expecco Test Service") consists of a C library provided by eXept, which can be linked to the program. This library handles the communication with expecco. Using OpenETS, arbitrary C/C++ applications can be automated with expecco.
  • AutoIt GUI Interface Library
    This plugin interfaces to Windows applications via AutoIt. It is very low level, in that only a very limited set of attributes is accessible; however, it works with any window written in any UI framework and is sometimes useful, if no high level attributes (knowledge) about the underlying UI technology is available.

Code Execution

  • C# Code Execution -- executes C# code either locally or inside the SUT (.NET famework)
  • Java Browser -- allows for Java classes to be browsed in the SUT
  • Java Debugger -- to debug Groovy block and other code executed by the Java Bridge in (remote) JVM
