QF-Test version 3.5.0 released
Quality First Software GmbH has released the new branch of their professional test automation tool for Web and Java GUIs in feature-complete version 3.5.0.
Most notable features added since the release start of the previous 3.4 branch in May 2011 are the concept of grouping and managing test-suites in projects, Daemon communication now secured via SSL, new support for AJAX toolkit Vaadin, full sub-item support for several AJAX toolkits, integration with test management tool QMetry, updated support for Firefox up to current 20, updated support up to Eclipse versions 4.2.2 and 3.8.2, ExtJS version 4 and RichFaces version 4 and several extensions to the standard library qfs.qft.
This "dot-zero" release completes the main feature set of QF-Test version 3.5 and its milestone phase is now over.
QF-Test generally features easy to use capture/replay for effective recording of test cases for Java- (Swing, SWT, Eclipse plug-ins and RCP, ULC, Web Start, applets) and web-based applications (HTML, AJAX, explicitly GWT, RAP, Qooxdoo, Richfaces, ExtJs, ExtGwt - and now Vaadin). Advanced options like structuring and modularization strongly increase the reusability of system tests and thus reduce the maintenance effort. Expert functions like scripting in Jython or Groovy allows powerful under-the-surface access. QF-Test is ideal for the automation of functional regression and load testing.
