Parabuild Adds Statistics, Telemetry and Reports for froglogic Squish

04.15.2010 · Posted in News

Mountain View, CA and Hamburg, Germany, 29 March 2010. Today Viewtier Systems announced that it integrated Viewtier Parabuild with froglogic Squish, a popular tool for automated testing of user interfaces. The integration is available immediately.
"Test automation is an important practice that helps software teams develop better software faster", says Slava Imeshev, president and CTO of Viewtier Systems. "Parabuild promotes test automation testing by providing teams using froglogic Squish with an ability to run tests at every check in while monitoring test trends and statistics."

Parabuild parses XML logs generated by froglogic Squish, and creates statistics, telemetry and formatted reports for froglogic Squish. The logs are usually produced as a part of a Continuous Integration cycle or during a scheduled build.

"Squish is designed to not only provide the most reliable and robust functional GUI and regression testing framework, but also to be as easy as possible to integrate with third-party solutions, such as Viewtier Parabuild. We are excited to see Viewtier Systems providing a close integration between the two products to provide the users with a complete and strong solution for the software release process", said Reginald Stadlbauer, froglogic’s CEO.
