Besides the specifically supported AJAX toolkits (see section 43.3)
there are lots of other standard toolkits on the market. In addition
many companies implement their own customized toolkit or
extend standard toolkits to their needs.
This huge variety of different ways of creating web pages requires a very flexible
handling of webpages and its components by tools like QF-Test.
QF-Test provides a generic, configurable approach to cope with the challenge.
CustomWebResolver influences the component recognition algorithm
of QF-Test in a way that it matches your specific web page implementation.
CustomWebResolver changes the way QF-Test looks at your components.
It will recognize your business components like buttons or data-tables instead of
the pure HTML components. Furthermore, it's possible to ignore certain HTML components in the
recognition algorithm. This reduces the complexity of a web-page from the full HTML structure
to the actually used and relevant business components or data-containers
which will then be recognized by QF-Test.
So, the tester can focus on creating the test-cases and using the business components like buttons or
Besides reducing the complexity the tester can also make use of
the default mechanisms which QF-Test provides for every business component.
It's then possible to access a table-cell directly
via index (see chapter 6) or use table-specific checks like "Check the entire row"
or "Check the heading of the column".
