Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1196) Proposal to update Manifold Crawler UI
Date Sun, 17 May 2015 19:34:00 GMT


Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1196:

Hi Kishore,

This is what the Selenium doc says it does:

Selenium-WebDriver makes direct calls to the browser using each browser’s native support
for automation. How these direct calls are made, and the features they support depends on
the browser you are using. Information on each ‘browser driver’ is provided later in this

For those familiar with Selenium-RC, this is quite different from what you are used to. Selenium-RC
worked the same way for each supported browser. It ‘injected’ javascript functions into
the browser when the browser was loaded and then used its javascript to drive the AUT within
the browser. WebDriver does not use this technique. Again, it drives the browser directly
using the browser’s built in support for automation.

So, it does not emulate a browser.  Instead, it *requires* a browser -- probably more than
one -- and it pokes that browser and makes it do things.  So this does not seem to be a package
we could use for offline automated testing.

> 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.
