Abstract:
Linux Desktop Testing Project (LDTP) developed as a python library, to
do GUI automation on Unix platform (Linux/Solaris/FreeBSD) running GNOME
>= 2.6. LDTP works on top of accessibility layer. Will briefly discuss
about different ways of developing / executing the tests. Recently the
client LDTP framework has been ported to Windows platform, so the same
test scripts can be executed, as long as the UI widgets are same.
