3.18.4 Collecting components (technical names) from the AUT

Once your test specification is ready, you can collect components (technical names) from the AUT to map (assign) to the component names you used in your tests.

To collect components from the AUT , you must have:

  1. Start the Object Mapping Mode by clicking the arrow next to theStart Object Mapping Mode on the toolbar and selecting which AUT (based on the AUT ID) you want to map.

    \includegraphics[height=2cm]{lightbulb} If you have the same AUT running more than once, you will only be able to collect components from the AUT whose ID you chose. The object map for AUT's that are the same is, however, identical.

    The status bar will show that the Object Mapping Mode is active.

  2. Bring the AUT into focus by clicking on its titlebar.

    For Java AUT's :

    For HTML AUT's :

  3. In the Object Mapping Editor , the technical name for this component will appear in the unassigned technical names category.
    \includegraphics[height=2cm]{lightbulb} If you have already mapped this component, it will be highlighted in the Object Mapping Editor .
  4. When you collect a technical name, it is displayed with a colored dot in the Object Mapping Editor . The color of the dot indicates the strength of the component recognition for this component, in the current state of the AUT 3.18.4.1.
  5. Collect all the names you need from the AUT and then click the Stop Object Mapping Mode button on the toolbar.

  6. You can now map (assign) the component names you used in your Test Cases to the technical names you have collected from the AUT 3.18.5.
