froglogic Releases Automated GUI Test Tool Squish for Qt/Embedded and Qtopia

Hamburg, Germany – 2004-05-04. froglogic today announced the availability of Squish, the automated GUI testing framework for Qt applications, for Qt/Embedded.

Squish is an automated GUI test tool for testing Qt applications. Squish supports testing of Qt 3.x applications under Qt/Desktop platforms, including Windows, Linux, and various flavours of Unix. With this new release Squish adds support for automated testing of Qt/Embedded, version 2.3 or later, and Qtopia applications.

« After we released the first version of Squish, we experienced a growing interest in Squish for Qt/Embedded and Qtopia. » said Harri Porten, froglogic’s Director of Engineering. « Being able to provide such support with Squish 1.1, is a great win for developers and QA engineers. »

The distributed architecture of Squish lends itself to testing embedded applications. The software can be tested while running on an embedded device from the desktop PC via the Squish IDE or via virtual framebuffer emulation. This flexibility allows for easy integration of Qt/Embedded and Qtopia application testing into any development or test environment.

« Squish is a high quality GUI testing tool that follows the guiding principle for Qt: making life easier for developers, » said Eirik Chambe-Eng, President and co-founder of Trolltech. « We are very happy to see that Squish now also extends to Qt/Embedded and Qtopia. »
