WorkFolder Property

Applies to TestComplete 15.10, last modified on December 07, 2021

Description

Use the WorkFolder property to specify the working folder of the Java application.

Declaration

JavaTestedAppObj.WorkFolder

Read-Write Property String
JavaTestedAppObj An expression, variable or parameter that specifies a reference to a JavaTestedApp object

Applies To

The property is applied to the following object:

Property Value

A string value indicating the fully-qualified path to the working folder of the application.

Remarks

If you assign a value to this property, TestComplete will treat your project as modified. So, you will need to save or cancel changes when closing the project. The specified value will be displayed in the TestedApps editor.

To specify the property value, you can use project and project suite variables as well as the operating system’s environment variables.

The project or project suite variables must be of the string type. To refer to them, use the following syntax --

$(var_name)

--for example, “$(MyVar1)”.

Note: When evaluating the value of the property, TestComplete first searches for the specified variable in the project variables, then in the project suite variables. Please keep this in mind if you have project and project suite variables with the same names.

To refer to environment variables, use the following syntax --

%var_name%

-- for example, %Path%.

Note that variables can refer to each other, for instance, a project variable may include a reference to an environment variable. TestComplete will recursively analyze the variables and form the resulting value that does not contain variable names.

Example

The example below adds a new Java application to a project, specifies its launch parameters and then launches the application:

JavaScript, JScript

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

  // Specify Java application's launch parameters
  app.RunAsJar = true;
  app.JVMExecutable = "C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre7\\Bin\\java.exe";
  app.JarFileName = "C:\\JavaApps\\SampleApp.jar";
  app.WorkFolder = "C:\\JavaApps";
  app.ApplicationArguments = "in data.txt";
  app.Options = "-verbose:class";

  // Launches the Java application
  app.Run();
  // Test the application
  …

  app.Close();
}

Python

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

  # Specify Java application's launch parameters
  app.RunAsJar = True;
  app.JVMExecutable = "C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre7\\Bin\\java.exe";
  app.JarFileName = "C:\\JavaApps\\SampleApp.jar";
  app.WorkFolder = "C:\\JavaApps";
  app.ApplicationArguments = "in data.txt";
  app.Options = "-verbose:class";

  # Launches the Java application
  app.Run();
  # Test the application
  # ...

  app.Close();

VBScript

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

  ' Specify Java application's launch parameters
  app.RunAsJar = true
  app.JVMExecutable = "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\Bin\java.exe"
  app.JarFileName = "C:\JavaApps\SampleApp.jar"
  app.WorkFolder = "C:\JavaApps"
  app.ApplicationArguments = "in data.txt"
  app.Options = "-verbose:class"

  ' Launches the Java application
  app.Run
  ' Test the application
  …

  app.Close
End Sub

DelphiScript

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

  // Specify Java application's launch parameters
  app.RunAsJar := true;
  app.JVMExecutable := 'C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\Bin\java.exe';
  app.JarFileName := 'C:\JavaApps\SampleApp.jar';
  app.WorkFolder := 'C:\JavaApps';
  app.ApplicationArguments := 'in data.txt';
  app.Options := '-verbose:class';

  // Launches the Java application
  app.Run;
  // Test the application
  …

  app.Close;
end;

C++Script, C#Script

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

  // Specify Java application's launch parameters
  app["RunAsJar"] = true;
  app["JVMExecutable"] = "C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre7\\Bin\\java.exe";
  app["JarFileName"] = "C:\\JavaApps\\SampleApp.jar";
  app["WorkFolder"] = "C:\\JavaApps";
  app["ApplicationArguments"] = "in data.txt";
  app["Options"] = "-verbose:class";

  // Launches the Java application
  app["Run"]();
  // Test the application
  …

  app["Close"]();
}
