froglogic Pre-Announces Automated Mac OS X GUI Test

Reginald Stadlbauer writes "Hamburg, Germany - 2007-01-24. Squish/Mac will become available as
a new edition of the powerful, platform-independent testing framework
Squish. This new edition will feature the automatic creation and
execution of tests for native Mac OS X Carbon and Cocoa
applications.

Squish is the market-leading cross-platform GUI testing tool for
applications based on a variety of GUI technologies such as
Swing/SWT/RCP/Eclipse, Trolltech's Qt, Tk, Four J's Genero and
XView. Additionally, Squish supports automatically testing Web and
Ajax applications running in different web browsers.

Squish is a cross-platform solution that runs natively on Windows,
Linux/Unix, embedded Linux and Mac OS X. The new Squish/Mac edition
takes advantage of Squish's mature testing framework while adding test
automation support for the native Mac OS X GUI technologies Carbon and
Cocoa.

"While the popularity of Mac OS X is constantly growing, no
tools for automated testing of native Mac OS X applications are
available today. After the huge success of Squish with different GUI
technologies, we are very excited to fill this gap by providing a
solid and powerful test solution to companies targeting the Mac OS X
market.",
explained Rainer Schmid, froglogic's Mac OS X
Engineer.

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

Similar to preexisting Squish editions, tests for Mac applications
can be automatically recorded or written manually. Using Squish Spy,
verification and synchronization points can be inserted as easily as
in every other edition by visually exploring the internal structure of
a Mac application.

Previews of Squish/Mac will become available in the next weeks. If
