Backbase have announced a partnership with froglogic, the provider of Squish, the market-leading automated testing tool for GUI applications. The partnership removes a major barrier to enterprise Ajax adoption: the lack of proper automated testing tools.

Ajax applications can’t be tested with existing Web application testing tools because those tools can’t handle the complexity of Ajax widgets and he asynchronous nature of Ajax applications. This has severely imited the adoption of Ajax for enterprise projects. Manual testing f these applications is extremely labor intensive and some companies ust hire temporary workers to get enough testing capacity.

Foglogic, in turn, have announced version 3.2 of the leading, cross-platform automated UI testing tool Squish for Qt, Web/HTML/AJAX, Java AWT/Swing, Java SWT/Eclipse RCP, Four J’s, Tk and XView applications

The main new feature of this release is the advanced extensibility allowing to customize Squish in many more ways. This reaches from complete control over object naming and identification, more complex name matching algorithms to extension APIs enabling users to add support for advanced, custom controls such as complex Ajax Web widgets.
