Bredex GmbH has announced the planned release date of GUIdancer 3.0, their automated GUI test tool, as the first quarter in 2009. New features in this release will include a new modelling perspective for model-based testing and a new observation mode to allow testers to create reusable keywords from a running application. GUIdancer 3.0 thus offers comfortable, code-free and agile testing to teams at all stages of the testing process.Version 3.0 of GUIdancer will contain expansions in two directions. The first of these is model-based testing. Using the new modelling perspective, testers will be able to plan the structure of their tests and automatically transform the model into GUIdancer test cases. This new feature will extend the support that GUIdancer offers to teams testing early. Using requirements, activity or UML diagrams available in the design phase, testers will be able to generate test cases to be executed when the AUT is available. The second new area supports testers later on in the test process – namely those starting testing when an application is already available. Although no AUT is required to specify GUIdancer tests, this new observation mode will allow testers to create keywords using the running application. Keyword creation and refactoring is, of course, code-free, which saves time and resources in testing and maintenance. “Regardless of where you are in the test process, GUIdancer lets you start with test automation quickly and efficiently, using whatever resources you have available” said Hans-J. Brede, Managing Director. “Our message for testing remains the same for 3.0 – GUIdancer tests are specified, not programmed. However you use GUIdancer, you will have the advantage that you can test easily, quickly and agilely”.
