KDAB and froglogic Announce Strategic Collaboration

Hamburg, Germany – 2009-08-11 KDAB and froglogic GmbH, two leading companies in the Qt market, today announced that they will be collaborating on automated Qt GUI testing. KDAB will provide training and consulting services to help customers make the most efficient use of Squish, froglogic’s advanced user interface testing tool.

Squish can test applications based on a variety of GUI toolkits, including Nokia Qt Software’s Qt, Java SWT/Eclipse RCP, Java AWT/Swing, 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 KDAB will offer to Squish users include:

  • Training and Installation Support
  • Introduction to Automated QA
  • Automated QA Best Practices
  • Test Case Creation
  • Squish Customizations

KDAB’s services can help get testing teams up and running with Squish in as short a time as possible, and can help ensure that testers make the best use of the facilities that Squish provides.

froglogic’s Squish is the best-of-breed application when it comes to user interface testing. Within KDAB’s test-driven development model, Squish plays an important role in delivering high-quality software components to our customers. From years of experience with Squish, we can highly recommend it as the tool for testing user interfaces in an automated fashion.”—Matthias Kalle Dalheimer, President & CEO of KDAB.

The KDAB–froglogic collaboration means that the availability of Squish-related training and consulting services will be greatly increased.

KDAB conveys the vision behind Squish really well: Make it easy to find and fix problems early on, so as to deliver reliable and high quality applications to the customer. As such, KDAB is an ideal partner when it comes to consultancy and training using Squish.“—Reginald Stadlbauer, CEO and co-founder of froglogic.
