Automation API sample applications

Minor changes in the description and code may be necessary before it can be applied to Flex 3. The Automation API in Adobe Flex can be used for many tasks, including collection of metrics, functional testing, and co-browsing. An agent facilitates the communication between the Flex application and automation tools such as Mercury QuickTest Pro 9.1 or later or the metric recording tool. The two sample applications below show you features in the new Automation API, which is part of Adobe LiveCycle Data Services ES. Custom automated testing agent This sample illustrates how you can create a custom automated testing agent that records and replays user interaction with a Flex application. 

Custom recording agent Additionally, you can create a custom agent that records metrics data as the user interacts with an application as the following sample code illustrates. The recorded data can be sent to a database for future analysis of user interaction patterns. You can download the source code for these two samples in the Requirements section below. In the custom automated testing agent sample application above, you can try the functionality of the automation API in the testing and recording agents.

Customs Automated Systems

The modernisation of the Customs Department, from a paper-based system to an electronic system, has significantly transformed the management processes relating to import, export and collection of revenue at Jamaica’s points of entry. This transformation was initiated mainly through the implementation of the C87 Electronic Entry Lodgement System, which resulted in the efficiency and effectiveness of various customs processes. Further enhancement to the electronic Customs system was brought about with the implementation of the e-Payment system. This added feature was made possible by the integration of the C87 system, Cargo Processing, Custom Automated Services, and the Customs New Cash Remittance System, thus making the system faster and more accessible. Custom Brokers can now lodge their entries, query entries statuses and pay duties over the Internet. 

Other systems developed include the Revenue Accounting, Export and eManifest to name a few. Increased revenue collection for the Customs Department. The ease and speed with which import entries are submitted and payment made from the convenience of Customs Brokers’ offices via the Internet. Facilitates 24 hours, 7 days per week entry lodgement.

How to write automated tests for APIs using Postman – Part 1 – Postman Blog

One of Postman’s most powerful features is its ability to run automated tests on your requests. To get you started quickly we are publishing a two-part tutorial series, where we’ll go from a simple test to writing complicated tests and running them inside the Collection Runner. When you open Postman, you should see the ‘Tests’ section in the request editor area. Let’s write a simple test to give you a feel of how everything fits together. Postman expects the special tests object to be populated with a description an the result of the test. 

Just to see how things look when the API does not behave as expected, let’s change the status code in the test to 201 and send the request again. In the tests tab, Postman tells us that the test has failed. ResponseHeaders is a dictionary available inside the Postman test sandbox which contains all the headers returned in the response. Remember that as Postman tests are just Javascript code, we can add conditionals like if to our code. In case, something breaks down, these tests will fail. 

Even if you are new to programming, it’ll just take you a few minutes to write tests with Postman. Update: See how to write tests using the newer PM API. Related.
