The application to be tested is launched by a cmd file. A java program has been written which launched this cmd file. This program is then configured in abbot to launch the application. i.e the abbot script will execute a java program, which will execute the cmd file, which in turn will launch the actual application to be tested. In trying to do so, I find that the actual application is not captured by abbot. Is this possible ? Trying to directly launch the application from Abbot is a bit difficult because of lot of dependencies..(the problem is that the applicaion uses hsqldb which is not created when launching it with abbot ) Could someone please help with this ?
Thanks for your consideration.
We ran into this problem, and we ended up invoking Abbot from inside our application. So JDeveloper starts and once that is up and running the tests / costello are run from within.
There is a EditorContext object that allows you to take some control when invoking Costello from within another Java application:
You will need to provide it with a TestHierarchy that has been told not to ignore the main window of your application.
Here is a view let showing a very old version of this working
Hope this is of some help,
PS If possible use the abbot-users mailing list in future - that is a better forum to use
