BREDEX Software has released Version 4.0 of its GUIdancer automated functional testing tool. Version 4.0 of offers browser-independent HTML testing, along with the current support for Swing, SWT/RCP, and GEF. Version 4.0 also includes new reporting features to track quality in projects and the option to test multiple applications during one test. Demo versions of GUIdancer 4.0 are available for download here.
GUIdancer's automated functional testing has been extended to HTML applications which run on Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari, bringing the benefits of the keyword-driven method to the testing of cross-platform and browser-independent web applications. With the GUIdancer library of test actions, automated functional testing is straightforward, encouraging the use of development practices such as modularity and powerful reusability.
A new reporting perspective in GUIdancer makes it easier to see information about test progress within a project. BIRT reports can be generated from the test results to gain an overview about the overall quality. The new reporting perspective benefits testers by allowing them to gain a quick overview of daily test results, while the full HTML reports provide detailed information about any errors that occurred. For quality managers, the BIRT reports offer the ability to display and monitor quality statistics over longer periods of time for the entire project.
