Squish GUI Testing Tool Integrates With Hudson Continuous Integration Framework

Squish is a cross-platform GUI and regression testing tool that supports the creation and execution of automated tests for applications built with a variety of different GUI technologies. Version 4.0 offers integration with the continuous integration framework, Hudson.

Squish can test applications based on Java SWT/Eclipse RCP, Java AWT/Swing, Nokia Qt Software’s Qt, Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa, and Web/HTML/AJAX, amongst others. Squish stands out from other GUI test tools by allowing testers to write tests using familiar scripting languages such as JavaScript, Perl, Python, and Tcl. Furthermore, Squish provides extremely tight integration with the specific GUI technologies it supports. This gives testers unprecedented access to the internals of the applications they are testing (to data items, controls, and widgets, etc.), and also leads to the production of very robust and stable GUI tests.

Hudson is an extensible continuous integration framework which monitors the executions of repeated jobs, such as building a software project and running its tests.

“We are excited to offer a Squish plugin for the popular Hudson framework. Hudson is widely used in the Java world and Squish’s seamless integration combines the advantages of two outstanding and complementary frameworks.” said Reginald Stadlbauer, froglogic’s CEO. In addition to Hudson, Squish already offers integration plugins for Eclipse TPTP, Cruise Control, Maven, Ant and HP Quality Center.
