In keywords, having multiple folders at the end of a long package hierarchy displays the full hierarchy for each folder, which is cluttered and hard to parse. These long namespace names are a standard in Java to avoid namespace collisions. Other Java IDEs will prune this or display the whole hierarchy as a folder that you expand to see the contents.
For example, let’s say I have the following 2 keyword packages:
Many Java IDEs will display this as follows:
foo.bar.baz.qux | one | two
but Katalon Studio will format it like so:
This gets really ugly with more folders. Even just displaying a regular file hierarchy would be improvement (in my opinion):
foo |---bar | |---baz | | |---qux | | | | one | | | | two
It’s certainly not as nice as the first option, but it’s at least still a hierarchy. And this is what is already done in the rest of the Katalon Studio for test cases, objects, suites, etc.
- It doesn’t affect much, but I believe Katalon team should have this ticket resolved
Katalon Studio should display these common folder hierarchies more neatly, similar to other Java IDEs.
