froglogic Announces Support for Testing Tcl/Tk Applications with Squish

Hamburg, Germany – 2006-01-17 froglogic GmbH today announced the availability of Squish/Tk. This new Squish edition enables user to test applications based on the widely used Tk toolkit.

To date, Squish (, a professional automated GUI test tool, provided the capability to test Qt and XView applications. Inspired by the success of those product lines, froglogic decided to integrate support for more toolkits and technologies into Squish. At the same time froglogic’s developers keep improving Squish’s capabilities for existing toolkit integrations.

“Due to our Tk product offerings such as Tq and Pq and a strong customer base in the EDA industry, we saw high demand for automatic GUI testing of Tk applications in the market. This helped us decide that Tk would become the next toolkit supported by Squish.”, explained Reginald Stadlbauer, froglogic’s CTO.

In addition to Qt, XView and Tk, Squish can also be used for testing mixed Qt/Tk applications based on froglogic’s Tq solution. This allows to record, replay and access widgets and properties on both Tk and Qt widgets in such mixed application from within Squish.

Pre-releases of Squish/Tk are already successfully used by pilot customers. Squish/Tk will be publically released together with Squish 2.2. If you are interested in Squish/Tk and would like to try it out now, please contact us at
