About Robot Support for Java
Rational Robot provides comprehensive support for testing GUI components in
both Java applets and standalone Java applications. With its Object Testing
technology, Robot examines the data and properties of Java components. This means
that Robot can do the following:
Determine the names of components in your program, and use those names for
object recognition.
Capture properties of Java components with the Object Properties verification
point.
Capture data in Java components with the Object Data verification point.
Robot includes several Java-specific object types for testing Java components,
including JavaPanel, JavaWindow, JavaSplitPane, JavaMenu, JavaPopupMenu,
JavaTable, JavaTableHeader, and JavaTree.
Robot scripts can be played back on a variety of Windows platforms, including
Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows 98, and Windows 95, and are
transportable across the various Java platforms.
The following matrix presents an overview of the Java support in Robot:
