Hamburg, Germany – 2015-07-21 froglogic GmbH announced today the release of Squish 6.0 Beta; featuring an end-to-end BDD solution with advanced reporting capabilities.

Squish 6.0 Beta delivers end-to-end BDD support and Advanced Reporting capabilities

BDD support built into the Squish IDE
  • Complete support for Feature Files written in Gherkin
  • Gherkin Statement Completion
  • Automate & Execute BDD tests (scenarios) directly from the Squish IDE
  • Test step recording in any of Squish’s supported scripting languages
  • Switch between Feature (BDD) and Implementation (Script) Files
Advanced Reporting
  • Unified BDD & Script Reporting
  • Color-coded execution details directly within BDD Feature Files
  • New modernized and comprehensive HTML reports
  • Updated all script interpreters to newer versions
  • GUI Coverage – An experimental feature for tracking UI coverage of tests (limited to Squish for Qt at this time)

Using BDD, stakeholders, managers, developers and testers alike communicate using a single business-readable language

Squish GUI Tester supports BDD & GUI test automation across several technologies, including the Qt, QML and QtQuick GUI toolkits, Java SWT/Eclipse RCP, Java AWT/Swing, JavaFX, Windows MFC, .NET WindowsForms and WPF, Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa, iOS Cocoa Touch, Android, and Web/HTML5/AJAX/Flex.

“We are very excited to release a beta of Squish 6.0. Over the past two years more and more users asked how they could use Squish with Behavior Driven Development and Testing. It was possible in Squish using 3rd-party integrations, but we realized a much tighter and improved integration was really needed. The level of BDD support in Squish 6.0 goes beyond what we initially envisioned, and far beyond what’s available in any other BDD framework today. We are really proud of what we created.”

— Reginald Stadlbauer, froglogic co-founder & CEO

Standing out above other GUI testing tools, Squish gives all users the ability to create and automate BDD tests from a single tool. By writing (or using existing) BDD scenarios in Gherkin, users can automate each step using a guided recording feature, or test engineers can author and record tests – all automated using any of the following non-proprietary scripting languages: JavaScript, Perl, Python, Tcl, and Ruby.

With extremely tight integration for each supported GUI technology, Squish gives testers unprecedented access to application internals (data items, controls, widgets, etc.), creating robust and stable GUI tests, all while maintaining a BDD layer in a business-readable language.

Squish, and its tests, are fully cross-platform, working on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, embedded Linux, iOS, Android and several RTOSes. Learn More
