Squish 3.3 released

Froglogic today released Squish 3.3, an update to its cross-platform automated GUI testing tool. The software offers support for creating as well as running automated GUI tests of applications based on a variety of user interface technologies which include Trolltech's Qt toolkit, Java AWT/Swing/NetBeans, Java SWT/Eclipse RCP/JFaces, Web/HTML/AJAX and Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa. Squish is priced at $3,500 for a 'tester' license or $700 for a 'runner' license (system requirements were unavailable).

Squish features a testing framework with scripting languages like Python, JavaScript, Tcl, and Perl. Scripting languages are extended by test-specific functions, open interfaces, add-ons, integrations into test management systems, and an IDE that supports the creation as well as debugging of tests alongside a set of command line tools facilitating fully automated test runs.

Previous Squish versions worked exclusively on one specific GUI technology, but the latest release enables users to test hybrid GUI applications like Win32 Active-X controls embedded in Qt applications or Java applets.

The software also includes support for interacting with Eclipse GEF elements (Squish for Java) as well as QGraphicsView items (Squish for Qt), testing Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa GUI applications, testing Java applications started via Java Web Start, and an integration into the Eclipse TPTP Framework alongside 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.
