Deciding When to Use Java Add-in Extensibility

The UFT Java Add-in provides a certain level of support for every Java control. Before you extend support for a custom Java control, analyze it from a UFT perspective to view the extent of this support and to decide which elements of support you need to modify.

When you analyze the custom control, use the Object Spy, Keyword View, Editor, and the Record option. Make sure you examine each of the elements described in Identifying the Building Blocks of Java Add-in Extensibility.

If you are not satisfied with the existing object identification or behavior, your control is a candidate for Java Add-in Extensibility, as illustrated in the following situations:
