Testing Java Applications

Hello guys,
first of all thank you for such a great tool. It save much effort and time to use Katalon Studio instead of Selenium & Appium itself.
I am curious if it is possible to test an Java Desktop Application too?
Thank you!

Hi Tomislav,

Unfortunately you can’t test Java Desktop Application :), the current capabilities of Katalon Studio support Web, Mobile and API testing only.


Hi !
thanks to the latest version of Katalon Studio, we are now able to test Windows Desktop Applications, and it’s great
What about Java Desktop Applications, as asked earlier in this conversation ?

I have a .jar application that I would like to test with Katalon. Launching the app is ok, but then, no element can be detected

Thanks for your help !


Has this changed? We also need to test Java Desktop Applications.


Has testing Java changed?
