How To Combine SAP GUI Scripting And Selenium WebDriver

More and more loses the SAP GUI for Windows his unique position as primary UI and also more and more are desktop applications replaced with web applications. The SAP GUI for Windows offers for automation approaches the SAP GUI Scripting, a consolidated and technical reliable way. For web browser wrotes Former Member in his great blog about START (Simple Test Automation for Regression Tests) an UI Automation Framework to automate the testing of application. START bases on Selenium WebDrivers. So I think it could be advantageous to combine SAP GUI Scripting and Selenium.

 

Java

So I advanced my Scripting Tracker to create also Java code, to offer the possibilty to combine SAP GUI Scripting on this language platform. To use SAP GUI Scripting with Java you need the Java COM Bridge (JaCoB).

For the web activities I use in my context the chrome web driver, an x86 application, because I use the Chrome browser. So it is necessary to use the x86 (i586) version of the JDK, also for the SAP GUI for Windows. To record the activities on the web browser I use Firefox with Selenium IDE. You see it is a very heterogeneous development environment. But after all, it works. Here an example code how to combine SAP GUI for Windows activities with any activities in a web browser. In the example I combine information from the TAC SE16 from the table DEMO_CR_CUSTOMRS with a web dynpro application DEMO_WD_CAR_RENTAL – this is not really useful but shows the horizons.

PowerShell

A longer time ago I wrote here about the possibility to use PowerShell with SAP GUI Scripting. Selenium offers, besides Java, also dotNET libraries. On this way it is possible to combine SAP GUI Scripting with the WebDriver also on the base of PowerShell.

Here the same example in PowerShell.

#-Begin-----------------------------------------------------------------

  #-Includes------------------------------------------------------------
  ."$PSScriptRoot\COM.ps1"

  #-Set SapGuiAuto = GetObject("SAPGUI")--------------------------------
  $SapGuiAuto = Get-Object( , "SAPGUI")
  If ($SapGuiAuto -isnot [__ComObject]) {
    Exit
  }

  #-Set application = SapGuiAuto.GetScriptingEngine---------------------
  $application = Invoke-Method $SapGuiAuto "GetScriptingEngine"
  If ($application -isnot [__ComObject]) {
    Free-Object $SapGuiAuto
    Exit
  }

  #-Set connection = application.Children(0)----------------------------
  $connection = Get-Property $application "Children" @(0)
  If ($connection -eq $Null) {
    Free-Object $SapGuiAuto
    Exit
  }

  #-Set session = connection.Children(0)--------------------------------
  $session = Get-Property $connection "Children" @(0)
  If ($session -eq $Null) {
    Free-Object $SapGuiAuto
    Exit
  }

  #-Open SE16-----------------------------------------------------------
  $ID = Invoke-Method $session "findById" @("wnd[0]/tbar[0]/okcd")
  Set-Property $ID "text" @("/nse16")
  $ID = Invoke-Method $session "findById" @("wnd[0]")
  Invoke-Method $ID "sendVKey" @(0)

  #-Open selection view for table DEMO_CR_CUSTOMRS----------------------
  $ID = Invoke-Method $session "findById" @("wnd[0]/usr/ctxtDATABROWSE-TABLENAME")

  Invoke-Method $ID "press"

  #-Get the number of entries-------------------------------------------
    $ID = Invoke-Method $session "findById" @("wnd[1]/usr/txtG_DBCOUNT")
    $Value = Get-Property $ID "text"

    #-Set path to chrome browser----------------------------------------

    $Options.BinaryLocation = "C:/Program Files/Google/Chrome/Application/chrome.exe"

    #-Opens a web browser window----------------------------------------
    $WebDriver = New-Object OpenQA.Selenium.Chrome.ChromeDriver("C:\Program Files\Selenium", $Options)
    $WebDriver.Url = "http://nsp.stschnell.de:8630/sap/bc/webdynpro/sap/demo_wd_car_rental"

    #-Do your activities in the browser---------------------------------
    $WebDriver.FindElementById("WD1C").Clear()
    $WebDriver.FindElementById("WD1C").SendKeys("00000001")
    $WebDriver.FindElementByCssSelector("span.urBtnCntTxt").click()

    $WebDriver.Close()
    $WebDriver.Quit()

  }

#-End-------------------------------------------------------------------

 

On this ways is it possible to combine SAP GUI Scripting with e.g. WebDynpro or UI5 applications. So you can reach a higher integration level in your automation approaches.

  • Thanks for this.I was able to login and search for some objects in SAP UI.Now i am stucked in reading data from a grid.After searching system generate a grid.Now i want to read the data from the grid .

    I can click on grid cells and rows but i can not read the data.How to read the data from grid.

    sample code of clicking a row and cell

    Obj = new ActiveXComponent(Session.invoke("findById", "wnd[0]/usr/cntlGRID1/shellcont/shell/shellcont[1]/shell").toDispatch());
    Obj.setProperty("selectedRows", "0");
    Obj = new ActiveXComponent(Session.invoke("findById", "wnd[0]/usr/cntlGRID1/shellcont/shell/shellcont[1]/shell").toDispatch());
    Obj.invoke("doubleClickCurrentCell");
    • Hello Mohamed,

      thanks for your reply.

      Sorry but I have no Java sample code to read an ALV grid, but you can find here and here examples in VBScript. I assume that it should looks like this:

      Table = new ActiveXComponent(Session.invoke("findById", "wnd[0]/usr/cntlGRID1/shellcont/shell/shellcont[1]/shell").toDispatch());
      Rows = Table.getProperty("RowCount") - 1;
      Cols = Table.getProperty("ColumnCount") - 1;
      for (int i = 0; i < Rows; i++) {
        for (int j = 0; j < Cols; j++) {
          string Value = Table.invoke("GetCellValue", i, j);
        }
      }

      Let us know your results.

      Best regards

      •  

        Thanks for the response.

           Rows = Table.getProperty(“RowCount”) – 1;

           Cols = Table.getProperty(“ColumnCount”) – 1;

        above returns the no of column and rows.But

            Table.invoke(“GetCellValue”, 1, 1);

        this returns an exception.I have tried with different  row and column id’s as well.

        Exception – Method threw ‘com.jacob.com.ComFailException’ exception.

        Detailed message -com.jacob.com.ComFailException: Invoke of: GetCellValue

  • Hi,

    Sorry for interrupting again. Have you ever done automation for  SAP MDM -SAP Master Data Management.

    Would appreciate you thoughts and Ideas on it.

    • Hello Manoranjan,

      welcome in the SAP Community.

      Sure is that possible, here examples of different login variant:

      'Here the standard with findById
      'session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/txtRSYST-MANDT").text = "001"
      'session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/txtRSYST-BNAME").text = "BCUSER"
      'session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/pwdRSYST-BCODE").text = "minisap"
      'session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/txtRSYST-LANGU").text = "DE"
      'session.findById("wnd[0]").sendVKey 0
      
      'Here a variant with findByNameEx
      'Set win = session.ActiveWindow()
      'win.findByNameEx("RSYST-MANDT", 31).text = "001"
      'win.findByNameEx("RSYST-BNAME", 31).text = "BCUSER"
      'win.findByNameEx("RSYST-BCODE", 33).text = "minisap"
      'win.findByNameEx("RSYST-LANGU", 31).text = "DE"
      'win.findByNameEx("wnd[0]", 21).sendVKey 0
      
      'Here a variant with findByName
      Set win = session.ActiveWindow()
      win.findByName("RSYST-MANDT", "GuiTextField").text = "001"
      win.findByName("RSYST-BNAME", "GuiTextField").text = "BCUSER"
      win.findByName("RSYST-BCODE", "GuiPasswordField").text = "minisap"
      win.findByName("RSYST-LANGU", "GuiTextField").text = "DE"
      win.findByName("wnd[0]", "GuiMainWindow").sendVKey 0

      Best regards

  •  

    Thanks a lot Stefan.

    The examples shared are VB, any reference how that would be in Java?

    One more help.. Is there any reference link which I can refer to?

    Currently, I’m seeing issues for SAP grid where the ID would end at shell and post that, i need to write functions/methods to access the content.

    • Hello Manoranjan,

    • Hello Manoranjan,

      I am no Java programmer, but as far as I understand your code correct it can’t work. You are looping over the sessions but your xpath variable is set fix to ses[0]. Here my version of your code:

      public ActiveXComponent getXpath(ActiveXComponent Session, String name, String type, boolean editable, Hashtable<String,String> data) {
      	int count=0;
      		
      	//boolean recFlag = true;
      	ActiveXComponent childObject = null, currentObj = null;
      	Dispatch disp = Session.invoke("Children").toDispatch();
      	count = disp.call(disp, "count").toInt();
      	for(int i = 0;i<count;i++) {
      		currentObj = new ActiveXComponent(Session.invoke("Children", i).toDispatch());
      		Variant tempXpath = currentObj.getProperty(type);
      		if(tempXpath.toString().contains(name) && (currentObj.getProperty("Changeable").toBoolean() == editable)) {
      			xpath =  currentObj.getProperty("ID").toString();
      			xpath = xpath.substring("/app/con[0]/ses[" + i.toString() + "]/".length());
      			data.put("finalXpath", xpath);
      			System.out.println(data.get("finalXpath"));
      			break;
      		}
      		if(currentObj.getProperty("ContainerType").toBoolean()) {
      			childObject = getXpath(currentObj,name,type,editable, data);
      		}
      	}
      	return currentObj;
      }

  • Hi Stefan – I’m trying to scroll down on MM43 but sendVKey 82 is not active/configured on this screen.

    Basically I’m trying to take a screenshot on the attributes which are not visible.

    Could you please suggest if there is any alternate method to scroll down to a specific field on MM43?

     

     

    • Hello Manoranjan,

      it would be great if you ask this as a new question in the forum and not as comment of this blog.

      Thanks and best regards

    I disable the Java support with release 4 of Scripting Tracker. Java is since version 9 available only as x64 version. The only way to get access to the Windows Running Object Table (ROT) is via an x86 library, as I described above. So nobody has a chance to use this method with an actual Java release. From this perspective I see no reason to support Java furthermore.

    Best regards
    Stefan

     

    • Okay Stefan. Thanks!

      But is there any possibility of getting any of the versions of Scripting Tracker below release 4?

      Because I wanted the Java Scripting Engine which was more helpful as we do the SAP Automation using Java and can be integrated with the Hybris web apps as well which are automated using Selenium.

    • Hello Stefan

       

      I appreciate your work very much!

      I’d like to ask you for the very same thing, just to share a Scripting tracker version that supports Java plotter.

      Thank you.

      • Hello Kacper Witos,

        thanks for your post and your kindful words. I got many mails from users who wanted to have Java recording possibility back in the Tracker. This and the answer from Jude Bradley here, with the hint to note 2689304, changes the the things. “…as of patchlevel 8 of SAP GUI for Windows 7.50 and as of SAP GUI for Windows 7.60, the installation of SAP GUI for Windows automatically writes the respective registry values so that a usage of saprotwr.dll from 64bit processes is possible.”

        You can find here Tracker with Java support.

        Good automation, also to Neha Goje.

        Best regards
        Stefan

  • In VB Language sap connection string is connection = GUIApp.OpenConnection(“XYZ [PUBLIC]”, true)

    But if same I have to do it with Java  then What should be it.

  • Hi Stefan,

    Thanks a lot for your continuous help in automating SAP GUI with selenium – java approach. I have got a blocker. If you could please share any code specific to drop down selection and the menu bar selection of GUI. Thanks so much!! Waiting for you response…

    • Hello Soumen,

      welcome in the SAP Community.

      To choose an entry in the menu bar you can try this:

      Obj = new ActiveXComponent(Session.invoke("findById", "wnd[0]/mbar/menu[0]/menu[0]").toDispatch());
      Obj.invoke("select");
      
      Obj = new ActiveXComponent(Session.invoke("findById", "wnd[0]/mbar/menu[2]/menu[0]").toDispatch());
      Obj.invoke("select");

      With the number in the brackets you choose the menu, e.g. with “menu[0]” you choose the first menu.

      To set an entry in a combo box (drop down selection) you can try this:

      Obj = new ActiveXComponent(Session.invoke("findById", "wnd[0]/usr/cmbT005X-LAND").toDispatch());
      Obj.setProperty("key", "DE");
      Obj = new ActiveXComponent(Session.invoke("findById", "wnd[0]/usr/cmbT002-SPRAS").toDispatch());
      Obj.setProperty("key", "DE");

      Here you choose the combo box (cmb) and set the key, in my example both German, country and language.

      Best regards
      Stefan

  • Another question Stephan. If you could please help. How UFT gets hold of every object of SAP GUI? How can we get the same information about SAP GUI objects in java also? for example: SAP GUI table column names, menubar etc?

  • And if you could please share all the methods, functions etc to be used in SAP GUI Java combination so that we can do a full end to end flow of SAP by java and selenium.
