Hamburg, Germany - 2005-07-05 froglogic GmbH today announced the
availability of Squish supporting testing applications written using
the XView toolkit.
Squish, which is an automated GUI test tool, so far supported
automated testing of applications written using the Qt GUI
toolkit. Right from the start, the makers of Squish designed the
testing framework to make adding support for different toolkits as
easy as creating new add-on modules.
Reuters Financial Software initially chose and utilized Squish to
automate testing of their new Qt-based version of Kondor+3.0, Reuters
deal capturing, position keeping and pricing system.
"Reuters has been investing in Quality Assurance for years both at a
Process & Method level and at a testing level. In order to satisfy our
customers demand, our testing approach is increasingly based on the
principle of automating the tests for a better management and
measurement of test coverage. Reuters choice for software testing
solutions is usually oriented towards the big players of the market,
whose products cannot always satisfy specific needs. Squish has proven
to be an excellent tool that can easily interoperate with testing
software from major vendors. It can test our cross-platform Qt based
Kondor+ 3.0. At the same time we also wanted to leverage our effort by
using Squish to automate testing our prior versions of Kondor+, which
have been implemented using the XView toolkit. So we talked to
froglogic with the result that they added support for the XView
toolkit to Squish. A data-driven approach of the testing enabled us to
adapt very easily our existing scripts to Kondor+ 2.6 and 2.5. We are
now working on the next step: integrating Squish into our existing
test framework", said Thierry Duchamp, QA Manager for Risk of Reuters
Now Reuters Financial Software is able to use the same testing tool,
namely Squish, to test both, the XView-based and Qt-based versions of
Kondor+ on multiple platforms.
"It was a pleasure to cooperate with Reuters Financial Software and
their competent engineers to jointly realize XView support in
Squish. We are also very satisfied to have proven this way that
Squish's modular design allows for easy extensions such as support for
new GUI toolkits. We will keep adding support for new toolkits this
way as demand arises", said Reginald Stadlbauer, CTO of froglogic.
XView support for Squish is now available. If you would like to try
out Squish for Qt or XView or have any questions regarding Squish,
please contact us at squ...@froglogic.com. More information can be
