QF-Test expands its comprehensive AJAX compatibility to Kendo UI
GUI test automation with QF-Test is now also available for web pages that have been created with Kendo UI. Official support will start with QF-Test 4.1 but a pre-release is already available on request.
By use of the new resolver QF-Test can abstract deeply nested DIV hierarchies back to logical GUI elements, therefore complexity of Web testing is reduced drastically.
This specific component recognition of QF-Test is also available for the AJAX toolkits GWT, ExtGWT / GXT, ExtJS, ICEfaces, jQuery UI, jQuery EasyUI, Kendo UI, Prime Faces, Qooxdoo, RAP, RichFaces, Vaadin and ZK.

QF-Test recognizes GWT objects even in obfuscated mode
In web sites that were created with the Ajax Toolkit GWT complex elements such as trees, tables etc. are a big challenge. Furthermore they are - intentionally - falsified by the obfuscated mode of GWT. For this reason many test tools have problems to recognize dynamically generated elements.
QF-Test, however, goes one level deeper here and recognizes the elements by "getting past the obfuscation". Thus, QF-Test ensures a reliable component recognition also for GWT.

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 1000 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, jQuery EasyUI, Kendo UI, PrimeFaces, Qooxdoo, RAP, RichFaces, Vaadin, ZK).
