If you are testing Java Web Start applications (including Oracle Forms running out-of-browser), you may want to add the tested application to the Tested Applications collection of your project.

Adding Java Web Start Applications From the TestComplete IDE

  • Right-click somewhere within the Tested Apps editor and then click Add Application. This will open the Add Tested Application wizard.

  • On the first page of the wizard, choose Java application.

  • On the next page of the wizard, select Java Web Start application.

  • On the next page of the wizard, specify the launch parameters of the desired Java Web Start application:

    • Select a Java Web Start launcher you want to use to start your application. You can select the desired launcher from the drop-down list, or you can click and browse for the needed launcher manually.

    • Specify the location of the .jnlp file of your Web Start application.

  • Click Finish to close the wizard. TestComplete will add the specified Java Web Start application to the list of tested applications and will use the specified parameters when launching it.

Adding Java Web Start Tested Applications From Tests

Instead of adding a tested application to the project manually before running tests, you can add your application to the project’s Tested Applications collection from tests. To do this, you use the TestedApps.AddJavaWebStartApp method:

TestedApps.AddJavaWebStartApp()

The method takes no parameters. It returns the index of the new item added to the Tested Applications collection. You can then use the TestedApps.Items(Index) property to get the JavaWebStartTestedApp object corresponding to the added Web Start application.

Use the object’s properties and methods to set the application’s launch parameters and start the application.

The following sample script demonstrates how you can use the TestedApps.AddJavaWebStartApp method.

JavaScript, JScript

function Test()
{
  // Add a Java Web Start application to the project
  var ind = TestedApps.AddJavaWebStartApp();
  var app = TestedApps.Items(ind);

  // Specify Web Start application's launch parameters
  app.JWSLauncher= "C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre1.8.0\\Bin\\javaws.exe";
  app.Location = "https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorialJWS/samples/deployment/dynamictree_webstartJWSProject/dynamictree_webstart.jnlp";
  // Launches the Web Start application
  app.Run();
  // Test the application
  …

  app.Close();
}

Python

def Test():
  # Add a Java Web Start application to the project
  ind = TestedApps.AddJavaWebStartApp();
  app = TestedApps.Items(ind);

  # Specify Web Start application's launch parameters
  app.JVMExecutable = "C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre1.8.0\\Bin\\javaws.exe";
  app.Location = "https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorialJWS/samples/deployment/dynamictree_webstartJWSProject/dynamictree_webstart.jnlp"
  
  # Launches the Web Start application
  app.Run();
  # Test the application
  # ...

  app.Close();

VBScript

Sub Test
  ' Add a Java Web Start application to the project
  ind = TestedApps.AddJavaWebStartApp
  Set app = TestedApps.Items(ind)

  ' Specify Web Start application's launch parameters
  app.Launcher = "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0\Bin\javaws.exe"
  app.Location = "https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorialJWS/samples/deployment/dynamictree_webstartJWSProject/dynamictree_webstart.jnlp"
  ' Launches the Web Start application
  app.Run
  ' Test the application
  …

  app.Close
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure Test();
var ind, app;
begin
  // Add a Java Web Start application to the project
  ind := TestedApps.AddJavaWebStartApp();
  app := TestedApps.Items(ind);

  // Specify Web Start application's launch parameters
  app.JWSLauncher := 'C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0\Bin\javaws.exe';
  app.Location := 'https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorialJWS/samples/deployment/dynamictree_webstartJWSProject/dynamictree_webstart.jnlp';
  // Launches the Web Start application
  app.Run;
  // Test the application
  …

  app.Close;
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function Test()
{
  // Add a Java Web Start application to the project
  var ind = TestedApps["AddJavaWebStartApp"]();
  var app = TestedApps["Items"](ind);

  // Specify Web Start application's launch parameters
  app["JWSLauncher"] = "C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre1.8.0\\Bin\\javaws.exe";
  app["Location"] = "https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorialJWS/samples/deployment/dynamictree_webstartJWSProject/dynamictree_webstart.jnlp";
  // Launches the Web Start application
  app["Run"]();
  // Test the application
  …

  app["Close"]();
}
