Automated Testing of Adobe Reader using Hewlett Packard Quick Test Professional
In conjunction with the release of Adobe Reader 9.2 and the announcement of Adobe LiveCycle ES2, Adobe Labs is hosting a new automated testing solution for Adobe Reader based on integration with Hewlett Packard Quick Test Professional – Adobe PDF Test Toolkit. We’ve created this technology for our enterprise customers to support automated testing and validation of PDF Forms workflows, including those hosted by LiveCycle ES2 and SAP.
The Reader integration with HP Quick Test Pro is similar to the existing Flex integration with Quick Test Pro (see: http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/3/testing_with_QTP_flex3.pdf).
Adobe PDF Test Toolkit supports the following:
- Testing of PDF Forms (Acroforms and XFA forms – including dynamic forms) with Acrobat or Reader running as standalone applications or inside of a browser.
- Testing of complete form workflows with Acrobat or Reader and LiveCycle ES or SAP Interactive Forms by Adobe.
Based on customer feedback, we focused on PDF Forms workflows. We are excited by this technology and the opportunity to integrate Reader and PDF Forms into enterprise testing workflows. As an Adobe Labs technology, it should be considered an early preview and we’ll be taking all feedback into consideration when planning future versions.
