I am currently trying to capture the objects using PAD from one of the application which is developed in Java, I am able to capture the complete window and title object but unable to capture the "buttons" and "Input text" objects, example : OK , Cancel , Password buttons and user id and password input text fields.
Do I need to enable any java plug-in in order to capture these objects. Please help.
PAD is just a new version of WinAutomation and to make it able to interact with JAVA application you must check a few things as the image and the link I have attached.
Thanks and hope it can help you.

Hi @miketran13 ,
Thanks for the suggestion. I am developing the PAD flows inside the Windows 10 VM and I am unable to see the section "option programs installed" in my control panel.
Please guide here.
I would like to bump this thread, since I am facing the exact same issue; i.e.: PAD cannot detect UI elements (buttons and such) from a Java desktop application.
I have come across the article referenced above in the past, and verified that the instructions are valid in my environment:
However I am not sure about the Java installation bit rate. What does this option mean, and how can I check it?
Does someone have any hints on how to troubleshoot this?
P.S. I should note that the issues mentioned above happen only in my work PC. At home, Java UI recording seems to work properly, but I cannot find any option that seems to affect it.
PAD runs as 64-bit application so you need to install and use the 64-bit version of Java JRE to be able to automate it. Might be that you have just installed the 32-bit JRE version or that your Java application uses the 32-bit version.
Hi, I have the same question. I'm trying to get UI elements in application that runs on 32bit JAVA. Is there a way to make it work? Is PAD going to implement a working solution for this?
Java Bridge did nothing for me. However, we were able to update the application in the meantime and now it seems to work.
