Squish for Web allows to automate Java applications as well (provided your Squish license includes Java).
This article explains the necessary steps to automate a Java application with Squish for Web.
If you have a Java applet, you should not have to do anything special. Record as usual.
Java applications that get started via Java Web Start (by a click on a link in a web page) can also be automated with Squish for Web.
The Web Start application should be hooked automatically and should be available as a separate application context.
If you want to automate a Java stand-alone application in addition to the web browser you need to use Squish for Web and a Squish for Web test suite. (Use Squish for Web to create the test suite.)
Then, because you are using Squish for Web, you need to tell Squish to use the so called Java wrapper for your Java application ("MyJavaApp").
Perl test scripts:
Then start your application like this:
In case you want to start the Java application before the Web application, you will have to store the default application context of the Web Test Suite. For example in a Python script:
You can switch back to the application context of the Java application by calling setApplicationContext(javaContext).
