New to Abbot & Costello

Hello,

I'm new to Abbot & Costello. I started playing with it about a week ago.

I have an existing Java Swing GUI that I want simulate user
interactions with buttons and text fields. I used Costello to record  
simple
interactions and now want to be able to supply a list of values and
expected results to test as inputs.

I've used the Beanshell Expression option in Costello to set up arrays
of values and expected results but can't seem to get them to execute
correctly or pass them into the XML generated by costello.

Any tricks for setting up beanshell scripts that can be read by abbot
and used to simulate user input and mouse interaction?

I was wanting to see if there are  any more recent
documents than the the ones listed at;

http://abbot.sourceforge.net/doc/overview.shtml

I downloaded version 1.2.0 but the above document refers to
version 1.0.2 (080819).

Just want to make sure that I am looking at the most recent docs.

Thanks,
Deryl

Deryl,

I would recommend going with 1.2.0 but the different here is that in 1.2.0 that the expressions need to be in
Groovey Script, I have updated the doc that comes with the zip file; but haven't updated the website until I
can squash one or two remaining bugs caused by updated all the dependencies.

By the way it is always good to attach an example script just so we can see what you are trying to achieve.

1.2RC2


All,

I have posted a revised version of the 1.2 build where I have hopefully fixed most of the doc references to
BeanShell along with a few extra bug fixes. I am still having trouble with a few regressions, hopefully I
will find some time to fix them so I can call this an official new version.

Thanks,

Gerard
