Version 4.1 of GUIdancer, the automated functional testing tool, is available for immediate download. This service release includes better support for working with very large test projects and has the added functionality of automatically taking screenshots when errors occur in tests. The new version also sees the Mac OSX support move from BETA to fully supported. GUIdancer is an Eclipse-based testing tool which allows modular and agile acceptance testing for Swing, SWT/RCP and HTML applications.
GUIdancer's new feature to automatically take a screenshot when an error occurs in a test reduces the effort required to analyze test failures and to document errors and their causes. Combined with the considerable extensions to test result reports in version 4.0, GUIdancer now provides the option of not only viewing a screenshot directly in the client, but also of adding the screenshot to a BIRT report of the test run.
Whether developing new tests or analyzing existing ones, this new screenshot function means that testers can quickly analyze errors occurring in their tests.
GUIdancer 4.1 also includes full support for the Mac OSX platform. The GUIdancer client can be used on Mac systems, and Swing and HTML applications (Firefox and Safari) can be tested on the Mac OSX platform. This addition allows applications to be tested on Windows, Linux and Mac machines for cross-platform peace of mind in acceptance testing.
