This is my first post here.Working as a Blackbox QA Engineer who has been recently told to look into Macintosh Automation using Eggplant. Here are my questions :-
I was just testing Eggplant getting to know it better and here is what I did :- On the Desktop I have an alias of TextEdit. The script that i wrote was to launch TextEdit through the alias,type some words in it and then save the file and quit out of the application. I captured the image of the alias and the script runs OK. But whenever I move the alias to some other part of the Desktop the Script fails saying it is not able to find the image of the Alias. I expect to place the alias anywhere on the Desktop as Eggplant will only search for the image!
Running Eggplant on a 2-user,single machine setup.One user is the SUT and the other is the client on which Eggplant is running.
My second Question is why does not Red Stone Software provide Test applications along with Eggplant. Like the VerySimple application i saw in one of the Eggplant learning videos.It would be great to have a simple application which we can use to learn Eggplant on. Segue provides such applications with SilkTest and so does Mercury with WinRunner.
