BREDEX GmbH announced today that version 5.0 of GUIdancer, their automated functional testing tool, has been released and is available for immediate download. The new version includes code coverage for Java applications using the JaCoCo code coverage agent. Version 5.0 also offers test specification help in the form of Test Style to provide hints and tips about writing readable, well-structured tests. GUIdancer 5.0 is based on the newly created Jubula project at the Eclipse Foundation and offers the added value features of long-term test result reporting, Mylyn integration for heightened productivity, and model-driven testing. The license model and pricing for GUIdancer have been made more attractive for both new and old customers.
GUIdancer 5.0 marks the first software release since the decision to migrate core parts of version 4.3 to an open source project at the Eclipse Foundation. “While we are obviously very excited about the Jubula project, it was also important for us to make GUIdancer 5.0 stand out in terms of its added value” said Hans-J. Brede, a Managing Director at BREDEX GmbH. “Being able to run code coverage alongside automated functional tests is a huge advantage for teams using GUIdancer 5.0. Now they can monitor their coverage trends and use the source-level analysis to identify areas where tests are lacking”.
GUIdancer 5.0 also contains the new Test Style feature to offer advice on structuring and naming tests. The Test Style component consists of the best practices taught to customers during seminars, workshops and coaching sessions to ensure long-term readability and maintainability of test projects. Alongside these two new features, GUIdancer 5.0 users will continue to have access to the BIRT reporting function for long-term quality analysis, the Mylyn integration for context-based test specification and the model-driven testing to import Test Case structures from UML diagrams.
As well as providing new features, GUIdancer 5.0 uses a new pricing model for licenses, whereby the license and maintenance price have been considerably reduced. As always, support, training and seminars are available for the tool – more information can be found on the GUIdancer website.
Customers new to GUIdancer can test the tool using a 30-day trial license, which can be requested from the GUIdancer shop.
