Windows UI Testing

Testing Windows Desktop applications

  • Classical Win32 applications
  • .NET applications (often developed in C#) based on Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) or Windows Forms
  • Windows Apps / Universal Windows Platform (UWP) applications using XAML controls
  • Modern C++ applications (for example Qt applications)

Android UI Testing

Native Android Apps

  • Testing of all popular Android versions starting from Android 7 on real devices and the Emulator of Android Studio

QF-Test is supporting selected technologies & platforms and it does that very well! This is what Quality First stands for.

Facts & Features

Robust component recognition

Stable Automated GUI testing
QF-Test masters complex elements like dynamic trees and tables. The tests are tolerant to UI changes. The sophisticated recognition mechanism leads to extraordinary maintainability and low maintenance effort, the most important factor in software test automation. Thanks to the new SmartIDs, objects such as buttons or text fields are addressed even more directly and it's even possible to write tests before an application is fully developed (Test-driven development).

Record, Replay & Edit

Creation of the automated tests without programming
You can create and replay your first tests easily via record/replay without needing any programming skills. The tests are fully editable with our low-code interface and can be modified at any point in the execution path. The test run is  presented in a clear tree structure.

Flexibility via scripting

Jython, Groovy and JavaScript
QF-Test is based on Java this is the reason, so you can create tests in the common scripting languages Jython, Groovy and JavaScript. Any Java Code or JavaScript code is executable in the browser. They make you can carry out complex checks and actions.

Daily monitoring ensures fast and high quality

Daily monitoring ensures fast and high quality. From the start of the project, daily monitoring ensures the quality of the existing functionalities through automated tests. Any errors that occur are quickly detected and can be corrected in a timely and cost-effective manner - before time-consuming refactoring or delivery of the software (faster ROI).

Backward compatibility of versions

QF-Test supports technologies in the long term and ensures stable tests and high quality for you in the long term. This makes your investment in test automation sustainable - something our many long-standing customers appreciate very much.

Testing PDF documents

PDF documents can be tested like a normal application with any developer license independent of the GUI. Textual and graphical checks for individual elements are common. There are algorithms also for fuzzy image comparisons.
More about testing PDF documents

"Starting with a Swing application, the technology switches to JavaFx, JxBrowser and web applications were also covered effectively with QF-Test."

Tristan Himmelreich, Computer scientist

Research & Development, Janitza electronics GmbH

"QF-Test is the best automated GUI testing tool and has the best support team I ever saw."

"For automated GUI testing Java, Eclipse and WEB applications it's the best thing since sliced bread :)"

Continuous Integration & 3rd Party Tools

QF-Test offers a flexible integration with other tools and areas due to XML as primary data format and different interfaces (batch execution via command line, daemon mode, scripting, REST, standard report):

Dockers and QF-Test

Docker containers

QF-Test is available as a Docker image and can be flexibly deployed in scalable Docker environments.

This enables parallel test execution.

Keyword-driven testing

Keyword-driven testing allows the execution of test cases directly without having to create them in QF-Test. Text steps can be read and executed from a planning document or the specification, e.g. Excel or another test management tool.

Brain driving behavior

Behavior-driven testing

Tools for behaviour driven testing like Cucumber can easily be integrated into QF-Test. Using this approach allows testers to describe test-cases more or less in continuous text and sentences. But the tester needs to follow a predefined vocabulary at the beginning of the sentence. 

Pencil and check

Data-driven testing

Flexible integration of internal or external data, e.g. from CSV and Excel files or direct database access. Other data sources can be integrated via script extension, allowing a test case to be executed exhaustively with an array of data variants.

Book with light bulp

Standard library

Modularization without programming. Recurring actions can be modularized in procedures making adaptations only necessary in the procedures (no redundant test-”code” or maintenance trap. These are highly reusable through parametrization.

Error analysis and Reporting

Detailed run-logs with debugger functionality in HTML and XML format for an effective error analysis including screenshots of the error situation. Automatic error handling, which grants continued execution of the whole test collecting errors in a single report. Verification points as standard checks or custom checks (via scripting).

Working in a team

The modular structure of the tests and an import mechniam for the component information enable smooth team work.

Quickstart Wizard

The Quickstart Wizard helps to set up your first tests in a few steps, recognizing the right technology automatically.

Remote test execution

The tests can be executed on a remote device which might run in a daemon mode.
