The perfect combination of Excelsior JET, the first Java SE VM with a secure runtime for Eclipse RCP, and Quality First Software's (QFS) QF-Test, the best tool for automatic testing of the resulting RCP UI, will be demonstrated for the first time at EclipseCon 2010 (March 23rd – 25th, Santa Clara, CA). The continuously growing Eclipse Community will see a very well working integration for the securing and testing of RCP software - which is for for other java applications as well.
Excelsior and QFS, both specialized in Java for ten years will show how Eclipse RCP applications can be protected from reverse engineering by compiling to native code executables with Excelsior JET AND how these precompiled GUIs can be easily tested via QF-Test, the well established Java GUI test tool.
Companies that want to manage the risk of IP theft and application vulnerability exposure may use Excelsior JET to protect the sensitive code and data in their Java applications. And if they are interested proactively in delivering high quality software products, QF-Test offers – as the only tool of 15 tested - perfect UI testing facilities for native compiled Java applications. This combination has been proven for almost one year now and is to be presented in Santa Clara for the first time.
The fact that QF-Test can be used for RCP and other Java applications compiled to native executables with Excelsior JET is a remarkable technical feat for both products. Usually, the communication between GUI test tools and native applications is a big problem, but the test tool QF-Test uses special libraries to connect to the Java VM. In this constellation both QFS and Excelsior have a vested interest in ensuring the compatibility in future versions of their products.
If looking for a Java SE VM with Ahead-Of-Time (AOT) compiler for your Java applications, Excelsior JET can certainly be recommended.
If looking for a GUI test tool for the automation of native compiled Java applications, QF-Test should certainly be the tool of your choice.
