Driver Platform

Using application reflection to drive synchronization and automation

The Driver Platform (DP) is a Windows specific service which can inspect and control most Windows based applications. It is used to allow non-CCOW compliant applications to take part in a context synchronization session, to automate workflows in applications and to display annotations. It has the ability to function as a standalone Context Manager as well, and can also be configured to use the centralized manager.

Features

Application Reflection

We provide various application drivers to ease application integration or to deal with applications for which it is not possible to implement an internal CCOW ContextParticipant handling.

The drivers are custom configured for each type of application and the flows that must be supported. We support the following types of drivers:

  • JAVA/AWT for driving JAVA AWT applications,
  • NATIVE/UIA for driving Windows applications (Windows Forms, WPF, Swing etc),
  • WEB/IE for driving web-based applications that require Internet Explorer,
  • WEB/WD for driving web-based applications in Chrome, Safari and Firefox, and
  • NATIVE/CV for driving Citrix and terminal-based applications.

If you have any specific requirements or need a custom driver, don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll try our best to make it happen.
