GUI Test Automation: froglogic Releases Squish 4.1

07-28-2011 08:29 AM CET | IT, New Media & Software

Press release from: froglogic GmbH

Hamburg, Germany – 2011-07-27 froglogic GmbH today announced that Squish 4.1 - a new feature release of the Squish GUI Testing Tool - is now available.

Squish is the leading functional, cross-platform GUI and regression testing tool that can test applications based on a variety of GUI technologies, including Nokia's Qt Software Development Frameworks, Java SWT/Eclipse RCP, Java AWT/Swing, Windows MFC and .NET, Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa, iOS CocoaTouch and Web/HTML/AJAX. 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, and Tcl. 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, and 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, and embedded Linux.

Squish is being successfully used in QA departments across the world in hundreds of companies both large and small, including, for example, ARM, American Power Conversion, EADS, Ericsson, France Telecom Group, General Electric, Reuters Financial Software, Siemens, Synopsys and Xilinx.

Squish 4.1 delivers several major new features including:

* Many improvements to the Squish IDE, with highlights including tools to tune image verifications, support for globally shared scripts, improved code formatting, using PyDev as the default Python editor, and the ability to add the Squish IDE to Eclipse as a plug-in.
Image verifications can be tuned to use different algorithms and tolerance levels for fuzzy comparisons.

* Improved packaging and simpler installation.

* Squish for iPhone's improvements include support for grabbing screenshots and for executing screenshot verifications as well as better scrolling and gesture support.

* Squish for Java's improvements include support for testing Cocoa SWT GUIs and better test script portability.

* Squish for Mac's improvements include support for testing 64-bit Cocoa GUIs.

* Squish for Qt's improvements include dedicated support for QML as well as Qt Quick and the ability to eavesdrop on Qt signals in test scripts.

* Squish for Web's improvements include support for testing on more browsers, such as Chrome and Opera, as well as Safari on iPhone.

* Squish for Windows' improvements include support for dynamically accessing .NET and COM properties and methods, and support for third-party controls such as Infragistics NetAdvantage and Exontrol.
