Java Testing Tool froglogic Squish Supports New Eclipse Europa

Squish for Java is a professional functional GUI and regression testing tool enabling the creation and execution of automated GUI tests for Java SWT/RCP and AWT/Swing applications.

Squish, and all tests created with it, are completely cross-platform and work on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X and embedded Linux.

Support for testing Eclipse 3.3 RCP applications has now been completed and will be released to the public as of the next Squish maintenance release 3.2.2. A pre-release is available to customers upon request.

"Following our cross-platform and cross-technology philosophy it is important for us to stay up to date with latest developments in the Java market. We decided to react quickly and implemented support for the improved version 3.3 of the Eclipse framework", said Koos Vriezen, froglogic's Java team lead.

Squish offers a versatile testing framework for GUI applications with a choice of popular test scripting languages (Python, JavaScript, Tcl, TSL and Perl) extended by test-specific functions, open interfaces, add-ons, integrations into test management tools, a powerful IDE
aiding the creation and debugging of tests and a set of command line tools facilitating fully automated test runs.
