As this approach is quite difficult to understand just via reading,
we describe a sample implementation using the WebCarConfigurator in this
section. You can find the WebCarConfigurator test-suite at
As stated in the previous section we need to figure out
which attribute provides the required information. This information will then be
used to point to a generic class of QF-Test.
As shown in the previous sections our first task for testing web-projects is to figure out
how QF-Test recognizes the components and to create a corresponding dictionary.
This task looks rather difficult at the first glance, but its result will drastically
reduce the maintenance work due to component
changes or hierarchy changes in later stages of your project.
This is because QF-Test uses the relevant properties of your HTML components only, and
not any information available.
chapter 55 shows a full list of all generic classes
for standard components and complex components like lists or trees.
We recommend that you map only those components which are really required and
not every existing component. It's rather simple to extend the mechanism later.
Repeating the steps of the previous example
we would now continue to map other components like menu items or tabs.
As the mapping would be too much for this manual we provided a full sample
in the demo test-suite
in the test-case
CarConfiguratorWeb Demo.Usage of CustomWebResolver.Create Vehicle with CustomWebResolver.
In order to use the created dictionary at every start of your web application you should
move the procedure call to
your Setup node directly after launching the browser.
In case you created the Setup node via the Quickstart Wizard of QF-Test you will find
a template call of the procedure in the sequence
Install CustomWebResolver. That call can be parametrized accordingly.
Besides the pure translation of web-page specifics into QF-Test classes, it's also
possible to ignore certain components during recording.
This is done via the parameters
However, you should do it only after you mapped most of the business components.
Finally, we would like to show the differences in the recording of the component tree
as it was originally and after implementing the custom web resolver as in the demo test-case
of the demo test-suite.
The figure below shows the recording without any resolvers on the left and the
simplified tree on the left.
