Jstudio is a great tool!

Is there a way we can use Jstudio to test Web applications through multiple browser types such as Mozilla/Firefox?

Hello spoon,

thanks for your interest in JStudio SiteWalker and your positive statement.

JStudio SiteWalker integrates Microsoft Internet Explorer controls only. So the product is assigned to do functional tests or data extraction from websites. I apologize that other browser are not supported by the product.

In practise many customers of projects I am involved in are using Firefox as developement tool but MS IE often is alredy used as reference testing tool.

The differences might be some display and script features. So focus on differences at critical parts.

Hope, this information do not deny your requirements completely.

However, enjoy working with JStudio SiteWalker.

Greetings from Germany and Best regards,

Frank Jarsch

Given the predominance of IE, your suggested approach makes total sense. If you have any suggestions on how we test "the differences" in other browsers then they would be gratefully accepted.

Thanks

Hi spoon,

the "differences" might be in the way different browsers render HTML/ XML and what script languages/ script command extensions are supported. It would be very hard to automate tests focus on exactly those different "soft functionalities" without manually, visually testing.

Because the HTML/script defined within the page is the same - independent from the browser used to display them - might not lead to indicate differences. Only if script statements are not supported within one browser, functionalities are not executed and the website process might occure errors or - if action is expected - do nothing.

By the way: to automate test cases covering different browser behaviour needs to know them to focus the test case on them. To find those difference I guess only manual testing or using a tool that supports any browser types might be a suitable way.

Im sorry that I have no real suggestion testing with firefox as browser. I also don't know a tool which could exactly do this. Hope JStudio SiteWalker fits to your functional testing requirements in projects where testing focus is not on web page dynamic.

best regards

Frank
