froglogic Releases Squish 3.3, The Automated GUI Testing Tool

New Froglogic Release

froglogic GmbH announced version 3.3 of the leading, cross-platform automated GUI testing tool Squish. Squish supports creating and running automated GUI tests of applications based on a variety of user interface technologies including Trolltech's Qt toolkit, Java AWT/Swing/NetBeans, Java SWT/Eclipse RCP/JFaces, Web/HTML/AJAX and Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa.

Squish is being successfully used in QA departments across the world in companies such as Reuters Financial Software, EADS, Siemens, Synopsys, Xilinx, Trolltech and France Telecom Group.

Squish offers a versatile testing framework with a choice of popular test scripting languages (Python, JavaScript, Tcl and Perl) extended by test-specific functions, open interfaces, add-ons, integrations into test management systems, an IDE that supports the creation and debugging of tests and a set of command line tools facilitating fully automated test runs.

One of the main new features of version 3.3 is cross-technology support. While previous Squish versions worked exclusively on one specific GUI technology, the new release enables the testing of hybrid GUI applications. For example, Squish tests can automate Win32 Active-X controls embedded in Qt applications, Java applets, Flash, or Active-X components embedded in a Web application or mixed Java Swing/AWT and SWT/Eclipse RCP applications.

Other new features include dedicated support for interacting with Eclipse GEF elements (Squish for Java) and QGraphicsView items (Squish for Qt), support for testing Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa GUI applications, support for testing Java applications started via Java Web Start, an integration into the Eclipse TPTP Framework and several improvements to enhance the tool's ease of use and test maintenance.

"After a very fruitful and productive beta period we are excited to release the final version of Squish 3.3. The new features found in all Squish editions as well as the integration of Squish editions for testing of hybrid user interfaces will boost the productivity of our customers", said Harri Porten, CEO and co-founder of froglogic.
