Hamburg, Germany – 2007-10-23 – froglogic GmbH today announced that Squish, the leading, cross-platform automated GUI testing tool for Qt applications now officially supports Trolltech’s Qt Jambi framework.

Qt Jambi is a cross-platform, rich client application development framework for Java. It includes a comprehensive class library and integrated development tools for high-end rich client application development. To organizations developing high performance, cross-platform desktop applications with the Java programming language, Qt Jambi increases development efficiency, adds freedom and flexibility to Java development, and provides the assurances of a solid, mature framework.

Squish for Qt is a specialized GUI testing framework allowing to create and run automated GUI tests against Qt and Qtopia applications. Squish is being successfully used in many QA departments across the world to increase quality while saving cost and time.

With the adoption of Squish supporting automated testing of Qt Jambi-based GUI applications, Java engineers can not only create professional Qt-based GUI applications in the Java programming language but can also take advantage of a proven GUI testing framework to ensure and enhance the quality of their applications.

“Making Qt available for Java developers is an exciting move from Trolltech as it makes Qt available to a large, new market”, said Koos Vriezen, Java team lead at froglogic. “By making Squish support the Qt Jambi framework we ensure that customers can benefit from a single solution to automate testing for both their Java and C++ development.”

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.
