Bredex GmbH has announced that version 3.1 of GUIdancer, the automated functional testing tool, is now available for download. As well adding support for the testing of GEF (Graphical Editing Framework) components, the new version is available for MAC OSX as a beta, and is compatible with Eclipse 3.5.
Increased platform and
application support are not the only areas where the Eclipse-based test tool
has been expanded. GUIdancer's
efficient keyword-driven approach has also been extended to improve the testing
of dynamic tables.
“Version 3.1 allows us to reach testers working on GEF applications and MAC OSX who want to attain a long-lasting and maintainable test-coverage, yet see the first successes from day one" said Hans-Joachim Brede, a Managing Director at the company. “We all know that a structured, modular approach is the key to successful test automation. GUIdancer’s simple yet powerful concept supports reusability at every stage of the test process. Test coverage grows quickly and maintenance is drastically reduced compared to other approaches where programming effort is necessary to automate tests.”
GUIdancer allows testers to automate tests from the user perspective without writing or editing any program code. Tests are created either by drag-and-drop from a library of actions or by recording actions from a running application. Both options lead to readable tests which are easy to expand, change and maintain against changes in an application.
Since releasing version 3.0 in April, the GUIdancer team has also added new actions to the GUIdancer library, including a simpler way of testing native dialogs. The software is available for download on the GUIdancer website, and a fully functional version can be tested with a demo-license. Live-demos of the software are available on request.
