 QF-Test version 3.5.2 released

QF-Test version 3.5.2 is now available for download from


What mostly kept us busy since the last release was WebStart and
applets and the way Oracle keeps tightening security by means of ever
more officious warning dialogs which are now handled automatically
even before the SUT connects to QF-Test.

Besides version updates for Firefox 22 and 23 as well as the final
release for Eclipse/SWT 4.3 "Kepler", an update for Testlink 1.9.7 and
fine-tuning for ZK and Primefaces, there also are some minor new
features and a handful of bug-fixes.

 Release Notes for QF-Test version 3.5.2

Important changes:

* Handling of the security dialogs for Java WebStart and applets had
  to be changed again.

  Security warnings are now closed implicitly before connecting to
  QF-Test and it is possible to permanently accept a certificate
  during this step. The details for this operation can be configured
  via the procedure qfs.swing.startup.setSecurityDialogSpec.

  The default delays for WebStart and applets also changed as
  documented in the procedure qfs.swing.startup.setDelays.

New features:

* Eclipse/SWT support was updated for the final Eclipse version 4.3

* Support was added for Firefox version 23 and updated for version 22.

* Testlink support was updated for Testlink version 1.9.7.

* 'Wait for component to appear' nodes now automatically handle
  waiting for the respective GUI engine in addition to implicitly
  waiting for the SUT to connect.

* Nodes for 'Procedures' and 'Packages' marked as "@deprecated" are
  now crossed out in the tree view.

* The new procedure qfs.web.general.integrateFirebug in the standard
  library qfs.qft loads Firebug Lite into the running browser which
  can be very helpful when writing resolvers.

* The keyboard shortcut [Shift-Control-I] can now be used to quickly
  pack one or more steps into an 'If' sequence.

Bugs fixed:

* The Windows executables qftest.exe and qftestc.exe failed to read
  the configured Java version, memory and language from the Windows

* Saving test-suites and run-logs and other IO operations are now
  significantly faster on slow network shares.

* When changing the currently executed node via 'Continue execution
  from here' in the test debugger, QF-Test is now smarter in keeping
  as much of the current state of execution as possible, including the
  previously broken case when continuing from a 'Procedure' node.

* On Linux systems Firefox would crash when terminated while a dialog
  was still showing.

* The recently added support for ZK and PrimeFaces was fine-tuned and
  fixes subtle problems with specific Trees, TreeTables and other

* Associated labels of Swing components, recorded as "qfs:label" extra
  feature, are now used for generating the 'Id' attribute. For web and
  SWT components this was already the case.

* In the QF-Test daemon DaemonTestRunListener instances were not
  unregistered correctly which could slow down daemon execution after
  a call like

  qftest -batch -calldaemon -verbose ...

* The SUT can now implement an RMIClassLoaderSpi without interference
  from QF-Test's RMI communication.
