Silk4JLibrary design notes 1 for Robot Framework
The following are some notes on how to develop a Silk4J-based test library for Robot Framework to use the Borland Silk GUI automation tool/library.
Suggest use Silk4J GUI element/object location inline object model (identify object & execute automation all in one line of code):
desktop.<controlType>find("/windowHandleType[@caption='window title']//controlType[@automationId='idName']").commandName();
At the control type descriptor for automation ID, the automation ID is only the required first array index to locating the object/element. As I recall, there can be optional second index after it that further describes the object/element, but I forget it's syntax, but it goes like such of course:
...//controlType[@automationId='idName'][some other identification here]").commandName();

PHP example for file downloader with Selenium
* This creates the cookie header string for curl to send when making requests.
* It includes the (PHP) session ID among possibly a few other cookies. This is
* not for use with curl's built-in cookie JAR (CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR) and file
* handling (CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE) options. This is using the curl header
* (CURLOPT_COOKIE) with value of "name1=value1; name2=value2..."
* See and
* for more details.

A simple example of downloading file with Java outside of Selenium to workaround Selenium limitation in file downloads.
/* an example of file download in Java w/ minimal amount of code, library imports,
* and object instantiations especially if you wrap/encapsulate code like example below.
* NOTE: sample code has been tested to work but not thoroughly tested. Use at your own risk.
//be sure to delete file after working with it. filenamePrefix ~ "test_", file extension ~ ".jpg", include the "."
public String downloadFile(String url, String filenamePrefix, String fileExtension) throws Exception{

For debugging jQueryMobile with PHP
if (!empty($_POST)){
$sentFlag = TRUE;
$smsResponse = "Something sent";
$sentFlag = FALSE;
$smsResponse = "Nothing sent.";
//get carrier list w/ CURL & establish session
$tuCurl = curl_init();

Example code snippets showing how Robot Framework test libraries and remote servers can be used externally with other frameworks and tools like PHPUnit. Note that it only presents code from the PHP side, not the RF remote server & library side, which a RF user/developer should already be familiar with.
include_once dirname(__FILE__) . '/../Extensions/IXR_Library.php'; //for XML-RPC
//some code to drive browser with Selenium to get to LDAP login point
$client = new IXR_Client('http://localhost:8270/RPC2');
if (!$client->query('run_keyword', 'LDAPLogin', array("yourUserName", "yourPassword"))) {
print 'An error occurred - '.$client->getErrorCode().":".$client->getErrorMessage();
/* now code that continues with Selenium after LDAP login completed
using custom AutoIt library (in Perl) served by RF Perl remote server

SafariDriver alert handling possible workaround using HTTP requests & responses. This may or may not work for you depending on what your application under test does with the alerts.
/* Safari workaround below simply constructs the required HTTP POST data
* as key/value pairs (e.g. param1=value1&param2=value2, etc.)
* then makes an HTTP POST request with that data, then check the received
* HTTP response returned (e.g. status code 200 OK, or response body content contains what you expect)
* Example below currently skips checking response as that part is handled by the CustomHttpClient
* (implementation not shown). Making actual HTTP POST request is same thing. For details on that,
* see this for reference:

Selenium page object model to model cart items as objects for testing code snippet examples
// snippet written for and relates to:
* Cart item implementation as a data structure
* containing a related set of WebElements to work with
* These cart items reside in and can be extracted from
* shopping cart page object to then be worked with.
