Meet froglogic at TechEd: Cross-Platform and Cross-Device Automated GUI Testing with Squish and Microsoft ALM Tools

Hamburg, Germany—2013-06-04 Learn about automated, cross-platform and cross-device GUI testing with Squish integrated into Microsoft Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server and Test Manager by attending MS TechEd NA, MS TechEd Europe or joining froglogic’s webinar on the topic.

Squish is the leading functional, cross-platform GUI and regression testing tool that can test applications based on a variety of GUI technologies, including the Qt, QML and QtQuick GUI toolkits, Java SWT/Eclipse RCP, Java AWT/Swing, JavaFX, Windows MFC, .NET WindowsForms and WPF, Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa, iOS Cocoa Touch, Android, and Web/HTML5/AJAX/Flex. Squish stands out from other GUI testing tools by giving test engineers the freedom to record and write tests using familiar scripting languages such as JavaScript, Perl, Python, Tcl, and Ruby. 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, widgets, etc.), and also leads to the production of very robust and stable GUI tests.

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

Squish is being successfully used in more than 3000 QA departments across the world in thousands of companies both large and small, including, for example, Airbus, ARM, American Power Conversion, Boeing, Daimler, Electronic Arts, EADS, Ericsson, France Telecom Group, General Electric, Intel, SAP, Siemens, Synopsys, TomTom, Xilinx and several government organizations.

The Squish for MS ALM solution provides a full integration into Visual Studio, TFS and MTM to allow for an end-to-end development and test experience. This way, cross-platform and cross-device GUI tests can be automated using the Squish GUI Tester and managed, ran and analyzed via the Microsoft ALM tools.

“Our partnership with companies like froglogic showcases the true value of the Visual Studio Industry Partner (VSIP) program for Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 developers,” said Tom Lindeman, Director of the VSIP program at Microsoft. “froglogic’s Squish GUI Testing helps development teams improve their GUI testing productivity across modern platforms and devices using Visual Studio 2012 and Microsoft Test Manager.”

froglogic will exhibit and showcase the joint testing solution in June at the Microsoft TechEd NA in New Orleans, USA and Microsoft TechEd Europe in Madrid. In addition, froglogic will conduct a joint webinar with the MSDN on this topic on June 12th, 2013. Please visit froglogic’s booth at any of these shows or register for the webinar if you want to learn more.

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.
