Selenium is not capturing a tool run from a browser

Post by sripathy23 on Wed Jan 12, 2011 10:24 am


I've a question regarding capturing event launched from a client manager interface from a browser.

Our company has appworx 8.0 tool which is used to schedule task. I'm looking at selenium to capture the events from this tool.

To launch the tool I need to use the following steps:

1. Launch a URL from firefox browser (Selenium captures the loading of the page)
2. Inside the URL there is a link "Start client manager interface". When I click on the link, a java application tool launches (client .jnlp) and the appworx tool is launched in a separate window (Note that it is not a browser window). The selenium IDE doesn't capture this tool and hence I'm unable to capture any events that takes place within this tool.

Can Selenium IDE or any product of Selenium capture the tool that is launched from a link "Start client application manager interface" from a browser. If so, how it can be achieved.

If selenium cannot capture the event from a tool, could you please suggest any open source automation tool that captures the event when a tool is launched from a browser window and also captures event within that tool.

If that window is opening in window frame or child window then it's not possible to to perform operation on it because selenium works only in web browser not on windows applet or frame.

But if your "appworx tool" is launching in browser then you can find certain work around. Try to look into webdriver , is such kind of handling present in that.

Best of luck
