Ranorex for desktop applications

Post by arun_volam » Fri Aug 13, 2010 2:06 pm

Hi,

I have an application developed in java awt, can i use the ranorex to automate the TC's for this application.

if i can use the tool to automate what are files i need to include in my application to detect the objects using spy.

Eclipse IDE is also developed in java awt and swings, Ranorex is able to detect all the objects for eclipse but not able to detect the objects in my application.

what are files i needed to include in application and what are settings in ranorex or in application i have to change.

Thanks,
Arun

Ranorex currently only supports applications based on Java SWT, not Java AWT or Swing. The support of Java AWT and Swing is on our roadmap for post 3.0 Ranorex versions.

As far as we know, the Eclipse GUI is developed using Java SWT, not AWT or Swing. That's why Ranorex is able to track UI elements in Eclipse, but unfortunately isn't able to recognize objects in your Java AWT application.
