Leading Java GUI Testing Tool Squish Supports New “Indigo” Eclipse 3.7

Hamburg, Germany – 2011-06-30 froglogic GmbH today announced support for the automated testing of Java Rich Client Platform (RCP) applications based on the new “Indigo” Eclipse 3.7 release.

Squish for Java is the leading functional, cross-platform GUI and regression testing tool for creating and executing automated GUI tests for Java SWT/RCP and AWT/Swing applications.

Squish itself, and all the tests created with it, are completely cross-platform, and work on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, and embedded Linux.

Support for testing Eclipse 3.7 RCP applications with Squish is now available with the upcoming Squish version 4.1 (currently in beta).

“Squish is one of the most mature and popular GUI Test Automation Tools for Eclipse RCP/SWT GUIs. Supporting the test automation of applications built on the latest Eclipse release 3.7—as well continuing to support those those built on older versions—is always a priority for us, as part of our ongoing commitment to the Eclipse platform.”, —Harri Porten, froglogic’s CTO.

Squish offers a versatile testing framework for GUI applications with a choice of popular test scripting languages (Python, JavaScript, Perl, and Tcl) that are extended by Squish’s own library of test-specific functions. Squish also provides open interfaces, several add-ons, integration with a variety of test management tools, a powerful Eclipse-based IDE that supports the creation and debugging of tests, and a complete set of command line tools that support fully automated test runs.

Squish is also ideal for use in organizations where a variety of GUI technologies are used, since in addition to the support for Java SWT/Eclipse RCP and AWT/Swing, Squish also supports the automated testing of applications based on other GUI technologies such as Nokia’s Qt, QML/Qt Quick, Web/DOM/HTML/AJAX, native Windows (MFC and .NET Forms), Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa, iOS Cocoa Touch and others.
