We use 5 different applications at work. There is a lot of copying and pasting and going back and forth between applications. It can be very draining.
The main program that I want to interface with is a ticketing application. It was not designed to be manipulated by another program, only a person. One way would be to write a program which moves the mouse around and types things into the fields and navigates
between the different windows. But the problem with that is the user (me) would not have the screen/mouse/keyboard free while this was happening as the program would be using it.
How would you go about just getting the data straight from memory? If that is not an option could I move the program off screen and manipulate it there? I don't know what language the program was written in. Maybe I could decompile it? Is there a good way
to monitor the information it sends across the network? If so I could just have my program make the same requests and then completely bypass the current program.
Do you have any ideas?
