Flexible Configuration for Object Map
It also provides an editor for the object map configuration using which you can change the default ‘naming and recognition properties’ used by the Object Map. It allows you to define any object property that you consider relevant in place of the ‘naming and recognition properties’.
Modifying MarathonITE‘s Object Map Configuration
The Object Map Configuration can be modified using the inbuilt configuration editor. MarathonITE categorises objects into two types – a Container Object (like a window, frame etc.) and a Component Object (like a text field, checkbox etc.). For each type, the following information must be given in the editor:
- Component Type – This value is the class name in Java applications and the CSS matcher in Web applications. It is used to identify the component.
- A list of properties to be used for recognition or naming.
MarathonITE uses this configuration information, to name and identify each component.
