Kapitec and froglogic Announce Strategic Partnership

Hamburg, Germany – 2009-09-15 Kapitec Software and froglogic GmbH today announced that they will form a strategic partnership for offering complete automated GUI testing solutions on the French market. Kapitec will promote and resell Squish, froglogic’s advanced automated user interface testing tool, and will provide local support services in France. In addition Kapitec will offer training and consulting services, to help customers make the most efficient use of Squish.

Squish can test applications based on a variety of GUI toolkits, including Java SWT/Eclipse RCP, Java AWT/Swing, Nokia Qt Software’s Qt, Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa, and Web/HTML/AJAX. Squish stands out from other GUI test tools by allowing testers to write tests using familiar scripting languages such as JavaScript, Perl, Python, and Tcl. Furthermore, Squish provides extremely tight integration with the specific GUI technologies it supports. This gives testers unprecedented access to the internals of the applications they are testing (to data items, controls, and widgets, etc.), and also leads to the production of very robust and stable GUI tests.

Some of the services that Kapitec will offer to Squish users include:

  • Technical Squish support in French
  • French Squish tutorials and documentation
  • Training and Installation Support
  • Test Case Creation

We are very happy to enter into partnership with froglogic, whose product is the ideal solution to easily and quickly test the GUIs of the Java, Qt as well as Web applications. This partnership allows us to complete our existing software offering which already focuses on improving and optimizing of software quality.”—Sandrine Boarqueiro, President of Kapitec.

The French market is very important for froglogic with many large Squish clients such as Reuters Financial Software and France Telecom Group. We are excited to partner with Kapitec to serve this important market even better with a localized Squish offering for our French users.“—Reginald Stadlbauer, CEO and co-founder of froglogic.

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.
