Automated GUI/Web/AJAX Testing Tool froglogic Squish 3.2 Released

Automated GUI/Web/AJAX Testing Tool froglogic Squish 3.2 Released

Hamburg, Germany – 2007-05-09 froglogic GmbH today announced version 3.2 of the leading, cross-platform automated UI testing tool Squish for Qt, Web/HTML/AJAX, Java AWT/Swing, Java SWT/Eclipse RCP, Four J’s, Tk and XView applications. Squish is being successfully used in QA departments across the world in companies such as Reuters Financial Software, EADS, Siemens, Synopsys, Xilinx, Trolltech and France Telecom Group.

The main new feature of this release is the advanced extensibility allowing to customize Squish in many more ways. This reaches from complete control over object naming and identification, more complex name matching algorithms to extension APIs enabling users to add support for advanced, custom controls such as complex Ajax Web widgets.

“Squish is the best tool to automate regression testing of Qt applications. With add-ons such as the one for Mercury Quality Center, it allows us to easily execute and manage test runs on different platforms. Moreover, froglogic’s support is very reactive, professional and competent which gives us a secure feeling for deploying our test automation”, said Jean-Marie HALLOUËT from France Telecom Group.

With these new features, Squish is even better suited to create very robust, powerful and sophisticated automated GUI tests for state-of-the-art GUI and Web/AJAX applications. This way Squish addresses a common problem of automated GUI tests: Creating robust test scripts which keep working when the Application Under Test evolves.

Squish offers a versatile testing framework with a choice of popular test scripting languages (Python, JavaScript, Tcl and Perl) extended by test-specific functions, open interfaces, add-ons, integrations into test management systems, an IDE that supports the creation and debugging of tests and a set of command line tools facilitating fully automated test runs.

“This new Squish release comes with many new and exciting features putting Squish even further ahead of its competition. Besides general new features, such as the advanced extensibility, which apply for all Squish editions, Squish for Qt now supports Qt 4.3, Squish for Web supports even more AJAX toolkits (Backbase, Telerik, IT MILL, Smart Client, GWT, Infragistics, Dojo, qooxdoo and others), the Java edition’s object name identification vastly improved and Squish for Tk supports testing PyTk applications”, said Reginald Stadlbauer, froglogic’s CEO.

Squish 3.2 is available for customers and evaluators in their download area now. If you are interested in Squish or would like to learn more about froglogic’s service offerings please contact squish@froglogic.com or visit http://squish.froglogic.com.
