You can deploy your toolkit support set at various stages of development to test how it works on UFT One.
If you deploy after ...
You can verify that...
You can use this test object class when editing steps in UFT One, and the operations are displayed correctly in the Keyword View and when using the statement completion feature in the Editor.
You define the mapping rules for a test object class, but do not define any operations.
UFT One can learn objects of this type.
UFT One can run steps that perform the operation.
You can see the identification property values in the Object Spy.
When you complete the development of the toolkit support set, you can deploy it for regular use, or package it for distribution. For details, see Deployment Destinations.
When you deploy the toolkit support set during the design stages, keep the Development mode option in the Toolkit Support Properties Designer selected. This ensures that if you modified attributes of IdentificationProperty elements in the test object configuration XML file, UFT One uses all of the changes you made.
Be sure to clear this option before you deploy the toolkit support set for regular use. Otherwise, every time UFT One opens, it will refresh the property lists based on the definitions in the test object configuration XML file. If UFT One users change the property lists using the Object Identification dialog box, their changes will be lost when they reopen UFT One.
For more details, see Modifying Deployed Support in the Micro Focus UFT One Web Add-in Extensibility Developer Guide.
Before deploying the toolkit support set, Extensibility Accelerator saves all of your changes and validates the information. If mandatory data is missing, or if conflicts or discrepancies are found between information in the different files, the Error List window displays messages that explain the problems encountered.
When you deploy the toolkit support set during the design stages, many of the issues reported in the Error List can be ignored.
Before you deploy the toolkit support set for regular use, make sure to address these issues.
