froglogic Releases Automated GUI Testing Tool Squish 4.2

  (March 06, 2012)

Hamburg, Germany (PRWEB) March 06, 2012

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, 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 4.2 delivers several major new features including:

  • Advanced WYSIWYG support for complex item-view verifications, such as entire tables and trees, in all Squish editions, and with a powerful verification point editor in the Squish IDE.
  • Support for Ruby as a scripting language for test scripts (in addition to those already supportedPython, JavaScript, Perl and Tcl)
  • Dedicated support for automating all WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) controls in the Squish for Windows edition.
  • Dedicated support for automating SmartGWT controls in Squish for Web.
  • Support for Qt versions up to Qt 4.8 in Squish for Qt.
  • Several improvements in the Squish for HP QualityCenter/ALM integration plugin have been made, and support for HP ALM 11 has been added in addition to the existing HP QC 10 support.
  • A new Squish integration plugin for Rational Quality Manager is available.
  • Support for Hudson/Jenkins slave mechanism has been added to their Squish integration plugin.
  • Simpler setup for test suites which require a launcher program, such as iOS, Java Web Start, and QML/Quick tests.
  • Several usability improvements in the Squish IDE.
