RE: [DejaGnu] GUI Testing

The way I am thinking about how to do it is as follow:

- dejgnu to remotely trigering the testing
- android ( to
manipulate the screen events.  If the GUI is on Windows,
I will use VNC to bring it to the X, since android needs
Xtest extension.
- dump the screen shot after defined strategic events
- comparing the jpeg

I am hoping somebody may have traversed this path before
and have an easier solution.
