JavaFX 11 and jdk11

Post by vblum » Tue Dec 11, 2018 3:39 pm

Hi,

does Ranorex support JavaFX 11 with jdk 11?

A first try with a freshly to jdk11/javaFX11 migrated application showed that Ranorex Spy does not display the JavaElements in the gui components as with jdk8.

We are using Ranorex Studio 8.1.1

Hi,

At first, Ranorex 8.1.1 is somewhat old (released in April 2018) and no longer supported. Please install most recent Ranorex 8.3.1 and try to reproduce your problem with this version. There were a lot of changes, improvements and bug fixes introduced between 8.1.1 and 8.3.1 so it's better to use most recent version.

At next, do you mean that Spy is not able to track the elements, which were previously recognized OK (with JDK8)? Could you please post a Ranorex snapshot (NOT screenshot) of the app under test, ideally, created both with JDK8 and JDK11? Plus post a xpath pointing to the element available with JDK 8. Thanks.

Please add these details to your questions:
  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration

Hi Pavel,

thank you very much for your reply.

We upgraded to the latest Ranorex version 8.3.2 and everything works fine now with jdk11 and jfx11. As with jdk8 all elements are detected with their internal names (fx:id).
