GUI And Web Testing Tool Squish integrates into Eclipse TPTP

Hamburg, Germany – 2007-09-18 froglogic GmbH, the makers of the popular automated GUI and Web testing tool Squish, today announced their integration solution for the Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform Project (TPTP).

Squish is a professional, cross-platform GUI and regression testing tool enabling the creation and execution of automated GUI tests for applications based on different GUI technologies. This includes applications based on Java SWT/Eclipse RCP, Java AWT/Swing, Trolltech’s Qt, Web/HTML/AJAX and many other UI technologies. Squish sets itself apart from other GUI test tools by closely integrating into the specific GUI technologies which leads to very robust and stable GUI tests.

The Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform Project (TPTP) provides powerful frameworks and services for an open platform to manage and administrate the entire test automation lifecycle.

“We are excited to bring Squish and Eclipse TPTP closely together. We strongly believe in the open TPTP platform for test management and want to ensure that our users can take advantage of two excellent and complementary frameworks for their test automation process.” said Rob Buis, froglogic’s test automation lead.

With the Squish TPTP integration, Squish tightly integrates into the Eclipse platform. Users are able to create, execute, manage and control their Squish test runs from within Eclipse TPTP.

The new plugin will be part of the next feature release of Squish. Preview versions are already available on request.

Harri Porten is of German and Finnish descent and grew up in Germany and Thailand. After high school he studied at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg in Germany, and at the University of Waterloo in Canada; he graduated with a diploma in Mechanical Engineering. 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. Harri began working as a software engineer at Trolltech AS in Oslo in the summer of 2000. During the next three years he oversaw the portability of the Qt GUI toolkit to a wide variety of different compilers and operating systems, including HP-UX and AIX. In addition, he implemented Qt's original SVG support, and was involved in Trolltech's quality assurance process. Harri was also a member of the Qt Script for Applications (QSA) team. Harri co-founded froglogic in 2003.
