I am a newbie in Java world, therefore I don’t really understand the strange package system and also jars.
I’ve created many jars to include in Katalon Studio Drivers folder, but none seems to be working.
But what is wrong with my jars?
Here are 2 jars: Drivers.zip (24.3 KB)
The kazurayam-ks-plainreport-0.6.0.jar created by @kazurayam works just fine, but mine, AhojClass.jar not working at all, and Katalon Studio don’t see neither package nor class inside it. Does anybody can hint me please that thing that I am missing?
Then you should stop playing on Katalon Studio now. Katalon Studio is a UI-testing tool but is not a tool for programming in general. It provides no support for you to create a valid jar file.
You should start studying Java/Groovy programming by reading some good books like Core Java Volume I and web articles.
By the way, you named your class to be Ahoj.AhojClass. This name looks very odd to me. It tells me that you are really new to Java world, hence don’t know the Java Naming Convention at all. According to the standard convention, a package name should be all in lower cases. So ahoj.AhojClass would be better. Also I find a class file named App.class without package. Why you make it sit outside the ahoj package? This makes me guess, you need to study the very basics of Java programming by reading books first. Without enough understandings about the basics, you will spend your time unproductively.
Not at all, I am kinda newbie to Java, but I am experienced programmer in .NET world
And I would never do something as dummy as just zipping it and renaming to .jar, don’t worry
Neither I used Katalon Studio for creating jars, but I tried IntelliJ IDEA and also VS Code and actually a also tried jar command bundled in JDK Nothing worked so I’ll try Gradle or I must discover what I am missing in producing valid jars
And I know about lowercase convention, I am just so used to .NET where it is UpperCase so I forgot about it when creating that package. But I have absolutely no doubt, that namespaces works better in .NET than packages in Java.
And I would much rather use Playwright than this Katalon Studio, but my boss want this tool, because even our not-programming colleagues should be able to do testing. But I have no doubt Playwright works much better in it’s internals, and it is very promising, but it lacks any proper GUI Tool like this Katalon Studio. Only 1 tool ony guy recommended me, that can work with Playwright is codeceptjs, but it’s UI tool looks very basic actually.
Not I am trying to improve some things that are not working good in Katalon Studio like dummy variable binding when everything is just a string. I already solved it here:
Now I will try to create reporting system based on yours and few tweaks like these, that’s why I am playing with it. Also those jar uploading I need for something
And thanks again, I’ll check all those links you shared
