Automated Java GUI Test Tool Squish 3.3 Released

Hamburg, Germany - 2008-02-05 froglogic GmbH today 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.
