froglogic Releases Squish Integration for Microsoft Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server and Microsoft Test Manager

Hamburg, Germany – 2012-10-17 froglogic GmbH today announced the availability of an Squish integration plugin for Microsoft Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server (TFS) and Microsoft Test Manager (MTM).

The Squish GUI testing tool is the market leading tool for cross-platform GUI test automation on desktop, embedded and mobile platforms.

The new plugin extends Visual Studio, TFS and MTM with a first-class Squish Test project type, which can be added to any Visual Studio project to manage and run Squish GUI tests. Squish tests can be stored and run locally in Visual Studio or checked into shared TFS projects. Users can run Squish tests from TFS or via the Microsoft Test Manager on remote test agents, either ad-hoc or according to an execution schedule.

The results produced by Squish test runs are automatically imported for further analysis in Visual Studio or MTM.

“Squish is the leading tool for robust automation of GUI tests on a variety of GUI technologies and platforms. While Squish specializes in functional GUI test automation, our users usually rely on other tools to cover the complete development and QA cycle. Microsoft Visual Studio tools offer a complete suite of tools to manage the development as well as the entire QA process. With the new integration plugin, Squish tests now become seamlessly integrated into this process.” says Reginald Stadlbauer, CEO of froglogic. “Demand from customers as well as a close and fruitful cooperation with Microsoft’s Visual Studio team has driven the development of this integration. We are excited to finally release the new plugin to our joint customer base.”

“Our partnership with companies like froglogic showcases the true value of the Visual Studio Industry Partner (VSIP) program for Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 developers,” said Tom Lindeman, Director of the VSIP program at Microsoft. “froglogic’s Squish GUI Testing helps development teams improve their GUI testing productivity across modern platforms and devices using Visual Studio 2012 and Microsoft Test Manager.”
