Features in version 6.2 include a new testing framework, integration into Mercury QuickTest Professional and new user interface widgets.

Canoo today announced a new release of its Java library for Rich Internet Applications (RIA), UltraLightClient (ULC). This new 6.2 version offers addons to test UltraLightClient-based applications more easily.

The new ULC test extensions offer an improved way for developers to test the user interface of their applications using JUnit and Jemmy. Functional testing with the new UltraLightClient test framework is more reliable and takes into account the client/server setup of UltraLightClient applications, as well as special UltraLightClient features such as lazy loading.

This improved test framework takes care of synchronization and enables end-to-end testing with no additional infrastructure code or Jemmy workarounds.

Integrates with QuickTest Professional

A brand-new integration into Mercury QuickTest Professional offers record and play functionality for test scenarios.

In addition, the following ULC feature requests have been added to the release:

  •      Custom labels for slider.
  •      Cell-based popup menus to add a context menu to every cell in a table, a tree, a list, or a table tree.
  •      A number of small improvements for existing user interface components such as:

         o Adding component orientation - from left to right / right to left,
         o Scrollable tabs,
         o Window decorators,
         o Table column events.

  •      Spinner component support.
  •      Possibility to customize the InputBlocker during server roundtrips to provide feedback to users.
