JxBrowser - technology limitation

Post by David Zita » Tue Oct 08, 2019 1:08 pm

Hi,
I am trying to test a JxBrowser-based application. I have successfully passed the --remote-debugging-port=8081 switch but the Spy is still saying

Before I set the remote-debugging-port it said I should set the remote debugging port, so I suppose now it should work. If I open localhost:8081 in my browser, I see

so the remote debugging port seems to be working. Any ideas?

Hi,

If I'm not mistaken, you are currently using Ranorex 8.3.x? I'm afraid, JxBrowser is supported from Ranorex 9.0. Which means, that to be able to natively use JxBrowser with Ranorex, you will have to upgrade your current version with 9.x (most recent version is 9.2.1).

Sorry, I forgot to mention. I am using Ranorex 9.1.2. I did some test in Ranorex 8.3.1 like 2 years ago (it can be found in different thread which is locked now ...). Anyway, I am using the latest Ranorex 9.1.2. I might try Ranorex 9.2 Beta, though. Should I?

Hi,

You can, of course, try 9.2. But I think the best approach to solve this issue is to contact directly Ranorex support. Since the JxBrowser should be supported by Ranorex 9.0 and higher, it appears to be some kind of Ranorex/instrumentation issue? Or your app uses too customized version of JxBrowser and is not entirely supported? It's hard to tell without seeing your app.

SOLVED.

The problem was the DevTools window that was opening together with our AUT and thus blocking the remote debugging port ... I don't understand how come I haven't seen it right at the beginning, it seems so obvious now :roll:
