  • Arrived in NYC

    By on March 18, 2007

    Harri and I arrived yesterday evening in NYC for the AJAX World Expo which will start tomorrow. The flight was one of the more pleasant experiences. Emirates, who flies directly from Hamburg to NYC, really does a good job when it comes to service, food, etc. The on-board entertainment...

  • Synchronizing with Backbase Applications

    By on March 15, 2007

    Hi! For those of you who use Squish for Web for testing Backbase applications here is a function which you might find useful. It can be used to synchronize on Backbase (BPC’s) loading state. Every time Backbase is loading, this little “loading…” box is displayed. So what the function...

  • KMail talking ManageSieve

    By on March 14, 2007

    My favourite IMAP server Archiveopteryx gained Sieve support with version 1.16 that came out last month. Apart from a few small harmless glitches it worked out of the box which finally means the end of client-side e-mail filtering for me. But it took Frerich less than a minute to...

  • Customizing Object Names

    By on March 8, 2007

    Squish has been using a set of property->value tuples for a while now to identify an object. For instance, to name an object of type ‘Label’ with the text ‘Hello World’, you might have something like: {type='Label' text='Hello World'} One inherent problem with this is that it’s hard to...

  • C++ Prototype Wrapper

    By on March 6, 2007

    Imagine this: You have an existing class hierarchy, for instance a ‘Node’ class from which ‘StringNode’, ‘NumberNode’ and ‘BooleanNode’ classes derive. Now, you want to implement a nicely generic and easily extensible way to create an object of one of the three concrete classes depending on a value (for...

  • Pain with browser compatibility

    By on March 5, 2007

    One improvement in Squish for Web 3.2 is the Spy object picker and screenshot comparisons. One issue common to both features is to find out the absolute (to the screen) position and size of a given DOM element. This is necessary to draw a highlighting rectangle around the element...

  • Clever Web Object Identification

    By on March 2, 2007

    As Reginald previously mentioned Squish 3.2 is going to have an even more sophisticated technique for identifying objects based on some properties. This is achieved by allowing to determine whether a given object matches a given property value not only through a plain string comparison but by also testing...

  • Squish/Web and XPath

    By on February 22, 2007

    One of the new features of Squish/Web 3.1 (released last month) is the new XPath support. I’m blogging about that since I notice from support requests that this new feature isn’t known well enough yet by our Squish/Web customers although it solves many problems in a very elegant way....

    This blog entry is written from my brand new PC featuring an Intel Core 2 Duo 3800+ CPU, 2GB RAM, 240GB HDD and (drumroll please) Microsoft Vista. As more and more of our customers start using Vista, it became apparent that we need to be able to test Squish...

  • Testing Java applets with Squish/Java

    By on February 19, 2007

    Since we released our new Squish/Java edition, we got asked a few times if it is possible to test java apples with Squish/Java. While we don’t support testing applets running in a web browser yet, it is possible to test them through the appletviewer. On Windows, just create a...

  • Processing squishrunners XML Output

    By on February 19, 2007

    One feature of our squishrunner program (which starts and controls the test execution) is that the output of the test can be given in different formats. This can be accomplished by using the ‘–reportgen’ argument and specifying an output format and an output file (i.e. ‘–reportgen xml,/tmp/results.xml’). In particular,...
