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
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.
