About Squish

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 GUI toolkit, 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 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, Xilinx and several government organizations.
