I have a java application which is running in a browser which seems to be invisible to QTP.

I've not automated for a Java application before so I'm not sure what to expect, but I'd expect more than this.

When I use object spy I see one object present (well, three counting the path to the object of interest), Browser(...).Page(...).WinObject("nativeclass:=SunAwtCanvas") which I can do nothing with.

I cannot interact or see any other objects. What do I need to do?

One of the benefits of commercial testing tools is the support provided by the vendors. I suggest that you raise this with HP. – Bruce McLeod Dec 18 '13 at 22:33

You must use Java Add-in for QTP to recognize the java objects.

If it's not working in QTP, check which version of Java you are using. After that check the support QTP gives for different versions. It happened to me once, and I degraded my machine to Java 1.6. So it can be one of the issue!
