To get the path to the application in a test script the most technically accurate approach is to invoke
squishrunner with the
applications parameters and to parse the resulting output to find the path relevant to the application. Here are some examples:
squishserver running on the same computer:
squishserver running on different computers:
This command produces lines that have the following format:
Each field is tab-separated (indicated with →). The italicized words stand for the actual values. The word
mapped might be
path depending on how the application was registered with Squish.
Here is an actual example of one such line:
shapes C:\squish\examples\qt4\shapes mapped
It should be easy to identify the line that refers to the application and extract the application's path from it using your scripting language's standard string handling facilities.
