Subject RE: Anybody interested in TestTool? I wrote a Java lib to replace it.
Date Wed, 16 Nov 2011 03:25:57 GMT
Welcome newbie!

I think there is definite interest in GUI testing via a Java library.  

Since the library drives automation in the openoffice process, it might be thought of as an
extension.  Is that your thinking?

(I am thinking where it could be kept in the Apache project structure.)

For contribution, there are a couple of steps to take.

First, for this substantial work, an iCLA is required from you.  Links to the iCLA can be
found here: <>.  The iCLA document includes instructions
for where to send it.  Some of your co-workers who have done this already.

Also, please check with your employer to ensure that there is approval for you to make this

Then next steps can be considered.

Hi all,

Vcl TestTool is used by GUI automated testing for, but it
has many drawbacks. Too many errors, difficult to debug, maintain and
execute parallelly. I found many people mentioned this problem. Libreoffice
has abondoned the tool. But I think GUI automated testing still is
valuable. It can test the product more like the actual users.
I has been working for long time on automated testing in Symphony project.
I wrote a Java lib which can connect to the automation (automation module
in source code) server in openoffice process and do GUI automated testing.
The lib can be integrated with JUnit or other Java testing framework.
Anybody interested in the lib? I can contribute it to community.
Suggestion is welcome.
PS, I am a newbie here. :-)
