[QF-Test] Component classes change

  • Subject: [QF-Test] Component classes change
  • From: "Govindarajan, Sridhar" <Sridhar.Govindarajan@?.com>

We are using QF test 3.2.2 for automation tests of our platform which serves different countries (and so different branches).


Due to some refactoring that happens on one branch but not on the other, the class names (custom components) are changing.


1.       We do not want to have a QF test script for every branch rather one script that will run on all branches.

2.       I cannot use “Record system classes only” option, as the base classes themselves could change. The class hierarchy is not the same anymore (e.g. the initial version of the custom component might derive from a JPanel, the refactored version might derive from a JButton, also the name of the class is changing but the component is meant for the same purpose and the same action (e.g. mouse click) is applicable).


Is there anyway I can make QF test just rely on the unique name of the component but not on the class name itself? I tried Name override everything mode but it still relies on the class name. It does not allow me to delete the class name also.
