11.1 Creating a keyboard layout file

  1. The name of the file must be in the following format:
    keyboardmapping_<language>_<COUNTRY>.properties
    e.g. for US English: keyboardmapping_en_US.properties

    See the section in this document 10 for language codes.

  2. In the file, enter the codes for all characters which require you to press a modifier key.
  3. The format for these codes is:
    <Character>=<Modifier>+<Character without modifier>
    e.g. for the @ character: @=shift+2
  4. The following symbols must be escaped with a backslash:
    ! = : \ ,
    e.g. \!=shift+1 for !
  5. There are pictures of various keyboards on the following website:

  6. To add the keyboard layout file to Jubula , you must create a fragment containing your newly added keyboard layout file(s). The host plugin for the fragment is:
    org.eclipse.jubula.client.core
    The path within the fragment must be:
    resources/keyboard_mapping/<name>.properties
    \includegraphics[height=2cm]{lightbulb} If you name the file with the locale code, then Jubula will display the keyboard layout in plain text in the AUT configuration dialog.
