This file provides information about the UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK.
The UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK enables you to develop custom support for third-party and custom Java controls that are not supported by UFT out-of-the-box.
The Java Add-in Extensibility SDK enables you to create testing support for Java objects that extend the following classes:
|AWT toolkit (which includes JFC/Swing)||java.awt.Component|
UFT is backwards compatible, and enables you to run tests and components on custom controls using toolkit support sets developed with QuickTest Professional Java Add-in Extensibility or earlier versions of the UFT Java Add-in Extensibility.
The SDK supplies a plug-in for the Eclipse IDE that provides wizards and commands to simplify the process of creating custom support.
Install the UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK and develop the toolkit support set for your Java controls on any computer.
After creating custom support, deploy it to UFT, enabling UFT to recognize the controls and support the appropriate properties and test object methods.
When you create custom toolkit support using the UFT Java Add-in Extensibility Eclipse plug-in, save and build the project before you deploy it to UFT. If you deploy a project that was not successfully built, the Java application that you are testing may behave unexpectedly.
Note: The UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK is required only for developing the support.
You do not need to install it on each UFT computer that users the support.
For more details, see Installing the Micro Focus UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK.
UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK documentation includes:
|Unified Functional Testing||
Version 14.03 or later, with the Java Add-in installed
|Eclipse IDE||Freeware. For more information, see http://www.eclipse.org|
Note: UFT can be installed on the same computer as the SDK, or a different computer.
If you plan to use the same computer, be sure to install the prerequisites before installing the SDK.
For a list of the supported versions of software used together with UFT Java Add-in Extensibility, see the UFT Product Availability Matrix (PAM).
Note: If you need to support custom controls in an application that runs in an Oracle SDK version other than those listed in the PAM, compile the support classes manually using the appropriate compiler.
To import an existing UFT Java Add-in Extensibility project into Eclipse, and then enable the Eclipse plug-in to recognize it as such, do the following in Ecplise:
Note: After importing a UFTJava Add-in Extensibility project, you can add custom support classes and use the Deploy Toolkit Support and Reload Support Configuration commands.
The following commands are available only for support classes that were created as UFT custom support classes in the current Eclipse workspace:
If you load custom toolkit support to UFT that was developed using a Java Add-in Extensibility SDK version earlier than 10.00, your extensibility test object classes are displayed in the wrong list.
The functionality of the test objects from these classes is not affected.
Workaround: Cause UFT to display the test object classes when the custom toolkit environment is selected
Locate the test object configuration file that belongs to the custom toolkit support set: <UFT Installation Folder>\Dat\Extensibility\Java\<add-in name>TestObjects.xml.
(If working with ALM: <UFT Add-in for ALM Installation Folder>\Dat\Extensibility\Java\<add-in name>TestObjects.xml.)
The UFT Java Add-in Extensibility SDK is not localized (the Language Pack does not translate them).
