Java extensions


I was strugling by so far, working with Blueprism and our ERP (java based application). Visual recognition is very bad for me and very oftnen I found a workaround using key shortcuts to achive operations. I know Blueprism wants JAB enabled to work with Java based applications. Last days I wanted to try the same with UIPath and it’s another world … downloaded trial version, enabled Java extensions and run it in web scrap mode … it does not fail any hit … stop recording and make some adjustment it works like a charme. UIPath just want install his own Java extension (no JAB) and is able to recognize always the java elements, you can see in or Swift

Now I’m curious and I would like to understand the different in Java elements recognition between those two products. Again, is it sufficient the java element is tagget as cls=‘SunAwtframe’ to know the Java extensions is working correctly ?
