Automated GUI Testing
Jubula 1.1 and GUIdancer 5.2 Released
BREDEX GmbH have announced the release of Jubula 1.1 and GUIdancer 5.2. GUIdancer is based on the Eclipse Jubula project, which made its Release Train debut this year. Both releases feature a new early warning for component recognition problems:
"One of the frequently-mentioned gripes with GUI testing is that components in the GUI are subject to change" said Achim Lörke, Project Lead for both Jubula and GUIdancer. "Our object recognition heuristic already reduces the likelihood that a change will lead to a component not being found, but the new system means that we can be warned when the next change could lead to the heuristic failing, and remedy the problem before it occurs."
GUIdancer users can access this early warning system for object recognition through a BIRT report, while both GUIdancer and Jubula users can benefit from a "traffic light system" that operates on collected components, and indicates the accuracy of their current recognition status.
Jubula 1.1 and GUIdancer 5.2 also feature a new refactoring wizard for replacing Test Cases with new ones, and improve the refactoring options. Jubula 1.1 can be downloaded standalone from the Jubula website, while GUIdancer is available with a 30 day demo license.
