Quality First Software GmbH is well-established in the IT testing market. QF-Test, the professional tool for test automation of applications with a graphical user interface, is successfully used by more than 900 customers from 50 different countries. Cross-platform, cross-browser and easy-to-use are just some of the strengths that characterize "The Java and Web GUI test tool".

QF-Test provides easy to use capture/replay for efficient recording of test cases for Java GUIs (Swing, JavaFX, SWT, Eclipse plug-ins and RCP, ULC, Web Start, applets) and web-based applications (HTML5, AJAX, GWT, ExtGWT, ExtJS, ICEfaces, jQuery UI, PrimeFaces, Qooxdoo, RAP, RichFaces, Vaadin, ZK). Advanced options like structuring and modularization strongly increase the reusability of system tests and thus reduce the maintenance effort. Expert functions like scripting in Jython or Groovy enable access beyond the user interface. With its focus on regression testing, QF-Test is also applicable as a driver for load test automation.
