Configure applications for testing

You need to configure your Java , HTML, VB.NET, or Windows applications for testing with Functional Tester to provide name, path, and other information that Functional Tester uses to start and run the application. You use the Application Configuration Tool to configure applications.

To add and configure your applications:


  1. Open the Application Configuration Tool by clicking Configure > Configure Applications for Testing from Functional Tester, or by clicking the Edit button in the Start Application dialog box.

  2. To add a new application, click the Add button.

  3. In the Add Application dialog box, select the application type, and click Next.

  4. Select an application for testing using one of the following ways:

    • For Java applications, executable files, or batch files click Browse > Open to find and select the application. For different types of domains, select the files listed in the following table:
      Domain type File type



      Visual Basic .Net and Windows

      Any executable or batch file

    • For HTML applications, select either Local or URL. If Local, browse to an .htm or .html file. If URL, enter the URL address.

    • For SAP applications, select the SAP executable from the dropdown list. Alternatively, you can select a SAP shortcut file with the .sal or .sap extension using the Browse button.

      You must have SAPGUI installed in your computer to be able to select this option.

  5. Click Finish.

    The application will then show up in the Applications list in the Application Configuration Tool.

  6. Look at the information in the Detailed Information list.

    For Java applications, the Name, Kind, Path, .class/.jar file, and Working Dir fields are automatically filled in for you. The JRE, Classpath, and Args fields are optional, and could be filled in by you as needed. Make any necessary edits.

    For HTML applications, the Name, Kind, and URL fields will be filled in. Select the default browser in the Browser field.

    For SAP applications, you can specify a separate argument to use in the Args field.

  7. Click the Run button to test that your application is properly configured.

  8. Click OK or Apply to save the changes you made.

    Once an application has been added, you can edit its information any time by opening this tool and selecting it in the Applications list.
