Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1196) Proposal to update Manifold Crawler UI
Date Wed, 13 May 2015 16:46:00 GMT

Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1196:
-----------------------------------------

Hi Kishore,

You run the ui tests as follows:

ant uitest

You need python 2.7+ installed on your machine for it to work.

I'm not surprised that the virtual browser wouldn't support entirely your new API.  However,
we control the code for this, so if there are just a few things missing, we can readily modify
the tester to do the right thing in those cases.  If it's a major difference, e.g. massive
use of javascript for page fetching etc., then it's probably not going to work.  Using the
API would be potential alternative, but probably we'd need instead to look at some other testing
infrastructure.

> Hi,
> I have been working on a new User Interface for ManifoldCF.
> This UI is based on Bootstrap, jQuery and some other opensource scripts.
> Only the index.jsp will be loaded once and other page are rendered using AJAX call, making
it more responsive and modern.
> Please find the attached screenshots.
> *Backward compatibility:*
> Since most of our tab comes from connectors, those tabs will be displayed as it is with
no immediate attention required. (see sample screenshot attached)
> *What next?*
> In future we can add Charts to our reports where ever applicable, so that it will be
more user friendly & informative for end users.
> Can make use of Web socket to notify exception or error to users as Notifications.
> *Browser compatibility*
> Has been tested with most latest browser and IE10, will try to add support for IE8 with
acceptable degradation.
> Any suggestion, concern much appreciated.
