ODT - Alternatives & Javascript Capabilities ?

Hi All,


ODT ( is going to be a depecated feature. So that an alternative is shared


/ Define a custom class
function customClass() 

  // Define a class property
  var classProperty;

// Define a class routine
customClass.prototype.classRoutine = function()
  // ...

function Test() 
  var obj;
  // Create an instance of the class
  obj = new customClass();
  // Set the class property
  obj.classProperty = 41;
  // Call the class routine


This alternative works for JavaScript too?!!

I never used ODT feature. But the alternative given here is what I have used to emulate the Page Object Model pattern in both JScript and JavaScript (using the protoype option). Its working absolutely fine as we expect.

I don't understand your question.  You've written JavaScript code... so it would work with JavaScript.  Can you clarify what you want to know?

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.

I think they are using ODT (Object-Driven Testing) project item. Since its depricated, as per smartbear suggestion - the alternative solution for ODT is the above implementation given in this link.


I reckon they would like to know whether someone implemented it successfully.
