Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1196) Proposal to update Manifold Crawler UI
Date Sat, 18 Mar 2017 09:37:41 GMT


Kishore Kumar commented on CONNECTORS-1196:

[~daddywri], Thanks for the feedback. I have currently tested the new UI with Google Chrome
and sure that it will work with the latest browser of different vendors. I will test the above
code with Selenium IE webdriver, Firefox WebDriver and Safari Web Driver.

When I used HTMLUnit for testing not all the XPath and other selector that I have wrote wrote
for identifying elements were working with HTMLUnit, 
My assumption for HTMLUnit not working is that it can only find elements based on defined
HTML markup and not the actually rendered DOM. The bootstrap framework javascript alters DOM
attributes at render time. For eg., for all the buttons we define `title="My button" data-toggle="tooltip"',
but the rendered html in Chrome will have `data-original-title='My title' and title=""', these
changes to DOM are made by bootstrap javascript plugins.

Regarding license files, I will update the files that you mentioned earlier by tonight so
that you can review them later.

> 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.
