Share Article

froglogic announced that Squish, its cross-platform automated GUI testing tool, now also supports automated testing for JavaFx-based applications on any platform.

"froglogic remains fully committed to improving its Squish GUI Tester by adding dedicated automation support for new and upcoming GUI technologies. Adding support for JavaFx in Squish for Java was the next logical step", Harri Porten, CTO at froglogic

The Squish GUI Tester is the market leading tool for cross-platform and cross-device GUI test automation on desktop, embedded and mobile platforms used by more than 3000 companies world-wide. The Squish for Java Edition places a professional GUI automation solution in the hands of Java developers and testers utilizing the different Java GUI technologies.

Until version 4.2.3, Squish for Java supported automated testing for AWT, Swing, SWT, Eclipse RCP and GEF GUIs. With JavaFx, Oracle added a new state-of-the-art GUI framework to the Java world which is meant to replace the aging Swing toolkit over time.

In the upcoming Squish 5.0 release, froglogic now includes support for automated testing of pure JavaFx applications as well as mixed Swing + JavaFx GUIs using Squish for Java.

"froglogic remains fully committed to improving its Squish GUI Tester by adding dedicated automation support for new and upcoming GUI technologies. Adding support for JavaFx in Squish for Java was the next logical step to give Java developers and users a professional tool for JavaFx application automated regression testing." says Harri Porten, froglogic's CTO "While we don't see Swing or SWT / RCP becoming obsolete any time soon, we see an increasing number of modern JavaFx applications which also require complete automated testing support."

Squish for Java's JavaFx support comes with the same feature set currently available in Squish for Java and other Squish editions: convenient test script recording, flexible scripting capabilities, powerful Eclipse-based test development environment integration, and more. Not to mention, dedicated support for all controls in the JavaFx tookit.

Squish for Java with JavaFx support will be available as part of the upcoming Squish 5.0 release, and is already actively used by several of froglogic's major customers. If you are interested in Squish for Java with JavaFx support prior to Squish 5.0, please contact sales(at)froglogic(dot)com.
