GUI Testing Specialist froglogic Announces Eclipse Strategy

Hamburg, Germany – 2008-10-03 froglogic GmbH will announce its new Eclipse strategy at EclipseCon 2008 taking place in Santa Clara next week. froglogic is the vendor of the leading, cross-platform automated GUI testing tool Squish. Squish supports creating and running automated GUI tests of applications based on a variety of user interface technologies including Trolltech’s Qt toolkit, Java AWT/Swing/NetBeans, Java SWT/Eclipse RCP/JFaces, Web/HTML/AJAX and Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa.

froglogic’s upcoming Squish 4.0 release will bring many ground-breaking improvements to the automated development and QA process. More details about froglogic’s product roadmap will be announced soon.

One strategic move is to replace the current in-house implementation of the graphical test development environment with an Eclipse-based IDE that is completely re-designed and re-written from scratch. The new Eclipse-based IDE will be deployed as a stand-alone RCP application as well as a plugin for the Eclipse Workbench.

“After we joined the Eclipse Foundation in 2007, our first move was to implement an integration of Squish into the Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Project (TPTP). Now we go one step further by using Eclipse as the primary IDE for Squish. This has two major advantages for our users boosting their productivity: The very rich feature set of Eclipse is available when working on Squish tests and integration of those tests into existing Eclipse projects.” said Reginald Stadlbauer, CEO and co-founder of froglogic.

“We are excited to see froglogic’s commitment to the growing Eclipse community. We congratulate froglogic on their upcoming release and welcome their commitment to embracing Eclipse as a platform for building commercial software.”, said Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation.
