Web and Flex GUI Test Automation: Squish Goes Flex

Hamburg, Germany – 2013-04-03 froglogic announced that Squish, its cross-platform automated GUI testing tool, now also supports automated testing for Flex-based applications on any platform running in any web browser.

Squish GUI Tester is the market leading tool for cross-platform and cross-device GUI test automation on desktop, embedded and mobile platforms used by more than 3000 companies world-wide. The Squish Flex Edition places a professional GUI automation solution in the hands of web developers and testers utilizing the Flex technology to create rich web applications.

“Squish for Flex deeply hooks into the tested Flex UI in any web browser granting the tester full access to the Flex application’s object tree, properties and methods. Providing access to all standard controls, such as buttons, text fields, menus, trees and tables, as well as custom controls without the need to change or add anything to the application or control libraries.” says Frerich Raabe, froglogic’s Flex Team Lead.

“This approach has proven very successful in other Squish editions, making the creation of more reliable and sophisticated tests than those with image-based testing tools possible”, adds Andreas Pakulat, froglogic’s Web Team Lead.

Squish for Flex comes with the same feature set already known in other Squish editions: convenient test script recording, flexible scripting capabilities, powerful Eclipse-based test development environment integration, and more. Not to mention, Squish features dedicated support for all controls from the Flex tookits.

Squish for Flex will become available as part of the upcoming Squish 4.3 release, and is already actively used by several of froglogic’s major customers, as it outperfoms any existing Flex testing solution in the market today. If you are interested in Squish for Flex prior to Squish 4.3, please contact sales@froglogic.com.

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.

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.
