froglogic Presents a Tech Preview of the GUI Test Tool Squish 4.0 at the Qt Developer Days in Munich

Hamburg, Germany – 2009-10-12 froglogic GmbH, the makers of the popular automated GUI testing tool Squish, will sponsor and exhibit at Nokia’s Qt Developer Days in Munich from October 13-14 2009 and demo a technology preview of the upcoming version Squish 4.0.

Squish is a professional, cross-platform GUI and regression testing tool that supports the creation and execution of automated tests for applications built with a variety of different GUI technologies including Qt, Web, Java Swing, Java SWT/RCP, Cocoa/Carbon and many more.

Among many improvements, such as a completely revamped test development environment and new Squish editions to automate testing of more types of GUI applications, froglogic will also show off the new support for testing mixed Qt and Web applications which make use of Qt’s WebKit controls.

This new features allows to automate functional GUI tests for applications which bring the Web to the Qt GUI world. The new version of Squish recognizes all Qt controls as well as DOM elements in embedded QWebView controls allowing to create robust automated tests for such hybrid applications.

“Over that past half year the number of requests to allow Squish to interact with the Web content inside QtWebKit views in Qt applications increased rapidly. Since we already offer Squish for Qt to interact with any Qt controls and Squish for Web to interact with Web/DOM/HTML elements in about any web browser, it was a logical step for us to offer an integration of these two editions allowing to create hybrid tests interacting with Qt controls and Web content embedded in a Qt application. We are excited to have this very powerful feature available which shows the power of Squish and our continued commitment to Nokia’s Qt GUI framework.” said Reginald Stadlbauer, CEO of froglogic

Harri started programming on an Apple II, and soon turned his hobby into a source of income, providing maintenance and consultancy services to local businesses. After discovering Linux, Harri joined the "KDE" project, where he eventually implemented a JavaScript interpreter – this interpreter was adopted for use in KDE's web browser "Konqueror", and is now also used by Apple in its Safari browser, and served as the starting point for WebKit's JavaScript interpreter.
