  • Checking a QTableWidget object against some test data

    By on October 18, 2007

    A common problem when developing test scripts for Qt application is that some table should be checked for whether it contains the correct data. In particular, the expected data is stored in an external file and the test script should load the file and then compare its contents against...

    By on October 10, 2007

    Hi! You can read an interview with one of our Squish for Java users on our web site. It talkes about their test automation process and why they chose Squish over Mercury’s (now it’s actually HP) Quick Test Pro.

    By on October 7, 2007

    We returned from the first of two Trolltech Developer Day’s events on Friday evening. There surely are many theories on how to best fight the jet lag but I dediced to simply do what my body asked for and gave in on any of the sudden urges to sleep...

    By on August 22, 2007

    Now that we have been in our new office for nearly 4 weeks we are finally sattled enough to find some time to write about it. In the last week of July we moved to nice and new offices. Due to our steady growth it got a bit too...

  • Finalized return from aKademy

    By on July 12, 2007

    This year’s KDE conference was again worthwhile going to. Wish I had been able to stay longer. Talks were good and seeing familiar and new faces proved to be very nice again. I might be in the minority but in my opinion the initial lack of an Internet connection...

  • Java Forum Stuttgart

    By on July 6, 2007

    Yesterday we attended the Java Forum Stuttgart (JFS), a Java conference organized by the Java User Group Stuttgart e.V. We had a booth there where we presented Squish and I also gave a talk. Lately we have been to quite a few conferences. The JFS really was one of...

  • Carbon/Cocoa Inter Thread Communication

    By on July 3, 2007

    Apple has a nice overview of thread communication means in their multithreading documentation (for both, Carbon and Carbon). However, I think the documentation is missing another technique that is very simple.

  • Squish for Qt: combine source and binary package

    By on July 2, 2007

    Squish for Qt is available as a binary package and a source package. The binary package is available for common platforms and compilers, but sometimes the Qt version you need is missing. Or maybe it is there, but it was built with a Qt configuration that does not match...

    In two days our company froglogic will have it’s 4th anniversary. The past 4 years have been very exciting times for us. Harri and I started the company in July 2003 (the hottest summer I can remember), after just having relocated to Hamburg. At this time the economy was...

  • Programmer's beverage

    By on June 26, 2007

    Most programmers have a favorite beverage they like and need for programming. For some it is coffee and for others it is some cola brand. I was never one of these: I always preferred tea over coffee (and I know quite a bunch who prefer tea as well). Here...

  • Complex Testdata in Squish

    By on June 25, 2007

    Squish has support for testdata: you can specify a tab (or comma) separated list of data, store it in an external file and iterate over each line of it with its scripting API (and access the fields of each line). Squish also has a builtin editor to edit such...

  • Extending the script bindings for Java

    By on June 12, 2007

    Testing with the Squish Qt edition, one can add (from the Squish documentation) var num = QInputDialog.getInteger( "Require User Input", "How many pages have been printed?" ); in the scripts. So testers can fill-in data that the program can’t see. Unfortunately testing with the Java edition and using the...

  • Webinale

    By on May 23, 2007

    Today’s the third, and last, day of our stay at the Webinale Conference. Squish is still a rather new and unknown contender in the AJAX world but it turned out that this is not a disadvantage. In fact, the whole scene is moving so quickly that there’s always something...

  • Dealing with dynamic object names

    By on May 15, 2007

    Now that Squish 3.2 is out I want to write about a scenario where you can take advantage of new Squish 3.2 features. One common problem, esp. when testing web applications, is to identify objects with dynamic parts (such as IDs) in their object names. Usually these properties have...

  • Revision Control with SVN

    By on May 11, 2007

    Today we finally switched to Subversion as our revision control system at work. After using CVS for about ten years, the list of things we didn’t like about it became long enough to justify switching to something different. At first it wasn’t quite clear what that “something different” would...

  • New offices

    By on May 8, 2007

    With our latest addition to our team (say hi to Rob!) we reached the space-limit of our current office. Actually considering that Harri and me are sitting together in the meeting/lunch room I’d rather say that we grew out of it already. At least nobody can waste time in...

  • KDE's Panel Vacuum

    By on April 27, 2007

    I’m quite amazed by how technologies which I used to discard as ‘hype’ (like, Solid or Phonon or so) actually seem to work. For real. Maybe I should feel a bit of shame but I don’t since this reflex of being sceptical of projects which have a fancy code...
