Accessing files downloaded by automated test running in CBT browser
I have a few automated tests (Java based webdriver) that cause my application under test to generate a pdf and download it. Next, the test picks up the file and parses it to make sure the content in the pdf was created in the expected manner. When I run these tests on my local network, I download the files into a folder that is accessible to all machines within our network so that whatever machine kicked off the test can also find the file for parsing. When I run these tests on CBT, I don't have that luxury. Is there a way to send the downloaded file back through the tunnel to my local network for parsing? I'm not seeing anything in the API to support that functionality.
I know it's been a while since I posted this question, but as requested here is what finally worked for me.
1. I start up an HttpsServer with a context that allows me to upload a file to the shared directory on my internal network.
2. I download the file in the browser on my CBT machine.
3. I hit the URL of my server from my CBT machine using local in the URL (i.e. https://local: port/uploadForm) and specify the downloaded file in the web form I created for the server context.
4. The file is uploaded to my local network and is now available for parsing, so I kill the HttpsServer.
The code is a little too much for a forum post, but if requested I may be able to throw together a sample java project with all the requisite pieces. Just wanted to let the 2 or 3 other people in the world who might want to try this know that it's possible!
