Getting around the login dialog

Postby sdutta » Mon Feb 18, 2008 5:42 am

I am using an evaluation version of WindowTester and don't have any Eclipse experience, so please point me to any documentation that's already out there for this.

I am able to get my RCP application to launch, however, the record options don't appear until after I've logged in. I saw in a previous post on the forum that there is a way around this:
"WindowTester starts recording only after the RCP application workbench is launched. So as of now, it is not possible to record the login dialog.

There is a workaround to it. If you could specify the user name and password as VM args for eg. and -Dpassword=example, then, when launching the application it would bypass the login dialog. That way the test would be able to run."

Where do these VM arguments need to be added? I see areas for VM arguments in the Run dialog of my test, as well as in the Record dialog. Can I enter other information other than login and password? The login dialog to the app I'm working with has a required field for a connection profile, whose value is a URL.

Also, when my application launches and I login, the eclipse menu options and windows are displayed within the app, which is not correct. Is there a something I need to disable?

The VMArgs have to be specified in the Record Launch Configuration, since you do not want the login dialog during a recording session. You can enter other information as well, as in your case -DconnectProfile=url.

You also need to modify your application to check whether these properties have been specified using System.getProperty("") . And if these properties have been specified, then you would use them to do the login in the application and not show the login dialog.
