[QF-Test] QF-Test version 3.5.5 released
Dear QF-Test users, for the benefit of those that don't receive our newsletter the technical details of new QF-Test releases are also announced on this mailing list. My apologies if you receive this information twice. Should you be interested in subscribing to the full newsletter please send an informal email with subject "Subscribe Newsletter" to <newsletter@?.de>. QF-Test version 3.5.5 released ============================== QF-Test version 3.5.5 is now available for download from http://www.qfs.de/en/qftest/download.html This version updates support for Firefox versions 27 and adds new support for Firefox 28. Eclipse/SWT support has been updated for the Service Release 2 of Eclipse 4.3. Early adopters of Java 8 are strongly encouraged to update to this version as it fixes issues with focus handling when testing Swing applications with Java 8 on Windows. Technical advice for Java WebStart ================================== Java WebStart keeps evolving as Oracle continues to tighten the security restrictions. When upgrading from an older Java version to Java 1.7.0_51, please first ensure that your application keeps running outside of QF-Test. Unless developers followed all the new rules and signed the application jars with a commercial certificate you may have to define an exception for your application in the Java control panel under "Security". This exception list is a long overdue feature in Java 1.7.0_51 that finally makes life for testers a bit easier: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/jweb/security/exception_site_list.html QF-Test 3.5.5 should be able to handle WebStart applications with Java 1.7.0_51 and automatically confirm those dialogs that can be confirmed. However, the number of pitfalls during WebStart startup that depend on timing and other subtle details continues to increase. The upcoming QF-Test version 4 will use a completely new mechanism for connecting to the SUT that is far more flexible and powerful. If you run into any WebStart-related problems, please get in touch with our support via <support@?.de> and we will provide a pre-release that you can try. New QF-Test/web video: Reduction of complexity ============================================== Though modern web user interfaces, based on common AJAX frameworks, typically look nice and work well, it is difficult to create automated tests for them. This video vividly demonstrates the explosion of complexity in AJAX user interfaces and how QF-Test keeps it manageable, so that testers can concentrate on the functionality they need to automate without concern for the implementation details of AJAX frameworks: http://www.qfs.de/en/qftest/web-gui-testing-reduction-of-complexity.html Or via our YouTube channel: http://www.qfs.de/en/yt35.htm Release Notes for QF-Test version 3.5.5 ======================================= New features: _____________ * Support for Firefox version 27 was updated and new support added for Firefox version 28. * Eclipse/SWT support was updated for service release 2 of Eclipse version 4.3. * The driver test-suites and documentation for the integration with imbus TestBench were updated. * QF-Test is now less restrictive when comparing document URLs or href attributes, so a simple change of a hostname, IP address or port no longer requires working with regular expressions in the 'Feature' attribute. Bugs fixed: ----------- * Focus handling for replay with Java 8 has been improved and QF-Test now works around a bug in Java 8 when setting a window topmost on Windows systems. * Proxy settings for Internet Explorer are now application-local, so even after a crash the system proxy settings remain unchanged. * The user agent for Internet Explorer 11 is now reported correctly by QF-Test's embedded browser. * Firefox confirmation dialogs for closing or navigating away from a web page are now handled correctly and can be interacted with. * Input of Unicode characters from 'Text input' nodes with 'Replay single events' set was not replayed correctly on some Linux systems. * Closing the QF-Test main workbench with a run-log still open, then jumping from that run-log to a test-suite caused the saved session of opened test-suites to get lost. -- Gregor Schmid E: gregor.schmid@?.de T: +49 (0)8171 38648-11 F: +49 (0)8171 38648-16 Quality First Software GmbH | www.qfs.de Tulpenstr. 41 | 82538 Geretsried | Germany GF Gregor Schmid, Karlheinz Kellerer HRB München 140833
