Mouse and Touch Events

I just downloaded Electric Mobile Studio for testing the behaviour of my Web Application on iPad. I thought that it is possible to disable all mouse events (iPad does not have any) and simulate touch events from mousa clicks and moves. My opinion is that this is not the case.
I am using jQuery Touch Punch ti handle touch events and jQuery's draggable / droppable features to handle Drag & Drop. In addition, the whole document must be scrollable by touch events.
Currently, I see no way to check if all that is running well on iPad.
What can I do?

Thanks, Bernd

    in other words: What I need is to use the mouse for touch events and to simulate both drag & drop for special objects and scrolling the whole window by the same device (i.,e. by mouse events that simulate touch events).

    In some discussions, it is suggested to use the mouse wheel for scrolling - but that is not what I want.

    If this is not possible, electric plum will not be useful for my purpose.

    I don't think that is possible at this time. Thanks for taking the time to
    try the product.

    I saw that Google's Chrome offers a touch screen device simulation that covers my needs. These are simulations for Android devices, so I hope that my website will work on iPad too.
