Squish tip of the week: Create cross-platform tests automatically

Did you know cross-platform and cross-browser apps can be automated using the same Squish tests?

Consider for instance a Java or Qt application:
  • The application is cross-platform
  • The application runs on Linux, Mac and Windows, etc.
  • Shouldn’t your test framework also be cross-platform?

How about a Web application?
  • All operating system and browser combinations should be validated.
  • Why not using a single set of automated tests?

Using Squish you can:
  • Create and execute Java or Qt application tests across Linux, Unix, Mac and Windows
  • Create and execute Web application tests across any of the following OS and Browser combinations*:
    • Linux, Unix, Mac and Windows
    • Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Opera and Mobile devices
  • Create tests that work with the toolkit, its objects and their properties, and do not rely on fuzzy image comparison algorithms.

* Not all browsers may be available on all operating systems (for example Internet Explorer)
