Mapping proxies to controls

HCL OneTest™ UI identifies each application under test (AUT) control by its class name. Running the testObject.getProperty(".class") method in the test script gives you the class name. The mapping is established through the class names of the respective control and ProxyObject.

Before you begin

To map proxies to controls, you must explicitly map newly developed ProxyObjects to a control or group of controls through an external map file called customization files with the .rftcust extension. HCL OneTest UI refers these customization files and creates ProxyObject instances for a control as specified in the mapping. You must create your own customization file to specify the mapping information between the ProxyObject and the control. You can deploy the newly created customization file by saving it in the HCL OneTest UI customization directory.

About this task

To map a proxy class to an AUT control class, add the ClassName and UsedBy tags within the DomainImplementation start and end tags.
Note: You must add your proxy class name within the ClassName tag and the name of the AUT class that the proxy represents within the UsedBy tag.


This customization file, for example, shows a mapping entry:
<DomainImplementation L=".DomainImplementation">

What to do next

While updating the customization file, make sure that the file meets the following conditions:
  • Make no typing mistakes while specifying the class. The strings are case sensitive.
  • Use fully qualified class names. Use the complete class name including the package separated with a period (.).
  • Match the domain type of the proxy to the section in the customization file by name.
  • Use an appropriate XML format:
    • Nest start and end tags properly.
    • Specify names for tags (case is significant).
