froglogic GmbH today announced support for automated testing of Java Rich Client Platform (RCP) applications based on the new Eclipse 3.5 release code named Galileo.

Squish for Java is a leading 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 the tests created with it, are completely cross-platform, and work on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, and embedded Linux.

Support for testing Eclipse 3.5 RCP applications with Squish is now available.

"Third party tools are essential to the success of the Eclipse ecosystem, so it is good to see that froglogic have been quick to adopt this new Eclipse release. Having the Squish GUI testing tool available for Eclipse 3.5 means that Eclipse users who also use Squish can confidently progress to the new release." —Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation.

"We are very happy to support another release of the Eclipse platform. This means that our customers can upgrade to it whenever they want, safe in the knowledge that their Squish tests will verify their applications' behaviors on the new platform.", —Harri Porten, froglogic's platform chief.

Squish offers a versatile testing framework for GUI applications with a choice of popular test scripting languages (Python, JavaScript, Perl, and Tcl), extended by Squish's own library of test-specific functions. Squish also provides open interfaces, several add-ons, integration with a variety of test management tools, a powerful IDE supporting the creation and debugging of tests, and a complete set of command line tools that support fully automated test runs.

If you are interested in evaluating or purchasing Squish for Java or any other Squish edition, please contact squish@froglogic.com or visit www.froglogic.com/squish.

Squish is also ideal for use in organizations where a variety of GUI technologies are used, since in addition to Java SWT and AWT/Swing, it also supports the automated testing of applications based on other GUI technologies, including Nokia's Qt, Web/DOM/HTML/AJAX, Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa, and others.
