Test Included ZUL

From Documentation

Since 1.1.0

ZK provides the Include component[1] and Execution.createComponents(String, Component, Map) method[2] to include and/or reuse ZUL pages or others such as servlet or JSP. In ZATS Mimic, we can test ZUL pages which are included by outer pages directly; simply use the Client.connect(String) method to connect to the ZUL page (like how you would normally do) you want to test.

Test Included ZUL Pages with Arguments

Sometimes, however, we pass some arguments, which can be retrieved from implicit objects arg to included ZUL pages for flexibility. ZATS Mimic therefore introduces a new connecting method Client.connectAsIncluded(String, Map<String, Object>) with the ability to connect to an included a ZUL page with specific arguments. Following is a typical example:


	<label id="msg" value="${arg.message}" />
  • Line 2: Value is retrieved from arguments.


public void test() {
	Map<String, Object> args = new HashMap<String, Object>();
	args.put("message", "Hello world!");
	Client client = Zats.newClient();
	DesktopAgent desktop = client.connectAsIncluded("/included.zul", args);
	Label msg = desktop.query("#msg").as(Label.class);
	Assert.assertEquals("Hello world!", msg.getValue());
  • Line 12-13: Prepare arguments for included ZUL page.
  • Line 15: Connect to included ZUL page with arguments.
