Jörg Paelke, PPI AG, Hamburg, Germany:
We have been using QF-Test successfully in several projects for one and a half year. Partly, the tested applications have passed several releases.
Generally I can say that die tests are project overlapping stable and as long as they are good modularized easily to maintain. Because of the high coverage of these automated tests, we are able to execute revision tests in a short period of time.
The reasons, that led us to QF-Test, are especially the maintenance given by separation of components and events, die testability of complex structures (e.g. JTree, JTable), good structuring of the test suite (important for very extensive applications) and the possibility of shared development of the tests.
Bernhard Rappold, Director Software Development at TAC | The Assistant Company, Hartberg, Austria:
Extending the CustomWebResolver is easy and uncomplicated - even with toolkit specific classes. Thanks to the Quickstart Wizard creating the project was fast and unproblematic and we could use it immediately. This is the reason why QF-Test will stay a top tool in the test automation field for TAC.
Martin Ronchi, Management Consulting, Adcubum AG, St. Gallen, Switzerland:
Thanks a lot for this brilliant service. That something we really appreciate.
Basil Baluta, CEO, Wairever Inc, Calgary AB, Canada:
QF-Test saved our bacon a few times and after nearly 3 man years of coding effort, we built end-to-end test scripts with QF-Test, we released our product and only had 1 defect reported after acceptance testing by our clients in 3 months, and that was due to a weird race condition with a slower machine, not a missed regression test.
Jochen Fischer, VoiceObjects, Bergisch Gladbach, Germany:
Did you evaluate more than one tool?
Yes, among others "Squish for Java" of Froglogic and "WindowTester SWT" of Instantiations. We chose QF-Test because of these reasons
We are using Jython for our quality assurance, too, and Python even more for automated testing. That's why we benefit from this feature of the software.
Alexander Sarris, Senior Manager OSS Engineering, Sunrise Communications AG, Zürich, Switzerland:
Thank you for your really exemplary approach to customer support!
Bojan Lozinsek, Projektmanager, Hermes Softlab, Maribor, Slovenia:
After evaluating a number of Java Swing automated testing tools, we found QF-Test to be the only one that managed to execute Java GUI tests on multiple platforms without platform dependency issues.
Let me add three sentences about your support: "This is what I call a response time! Great job! No wonder that your company is such a success :).
Gavin Walsh, TISL, Great Britain:
Gregor, I have never had such timely support in 16 years of IT. You and your company are to be applauded!
Benoit Lemarchand, Global Core Java Middleware Unit Manager, Amadeus, France:
As part of its offer, our company proposes a suite of products for airline IT named Altéa. Graphical interfaces use complex graphical components based on Java Swing and are deployed on several tens of thousands of workstations. Deployment is costly and time consuming thus it is primordial for us to ensure high level of quality. We have then conducted a study to find suitable test tool; 7 tools have been evaluated including QF-Test and the best known products.
QF-Test has been selected for following reasons:
Holm Fischer, Senior Consulting Manager, SYSTEMA GmbH, Regensburg, Germany:
I can already tell you that we could fulfill the client’s project only with your product QF-Test within the given time frame and budget. Your software contributed to its success – even though the client’s project isn’t finished yet, this statement is applicable by now.
Ratanak Koy, Application Developer, Wellington, New Zealand:
When we first started looking into automated GUI testing tools, we also evaluated GUIdancer by Bredex and Squish by Froglogic. Going with QF-Test was a no-brainer for us, as it was better in all areas.
Andreas Kellerstrass, Management Consulting, Adbubum AG, St. Gallen, Switzerland:
By the way I don’t know any other company with such a support for years. Even if you have more complex questions and wait sometimes a bit for an answer, they are always very detailed and exhaustive that nothing remains open. I wanted to express my excitement about this already for some time.
Frank Blechschmidt, Senior Consultant Test systems, imbus AG, Möhrendorf, Germany:
I am again and again excited about the reaction time in your company. Like this the "small" have a chance against the old-established companies. Big plaudit to your product support pages, especially the functionality of the onsite-search!
Glenn Chambers, Senior Quality Assurance Engineer, Rocket Software, Netherlands:
For testing Java, Eclipse and WEB applications it's the best thing since sliced bread :)
Peter Füss, Centris AG, Solothurn, Switzerland:
Thanks a lot for your fast and competent help. I am enthusiastic about your fast and competent assistance. I am happy about your support, anyway. I have never seen such a good support.
Matt Ezren, QA developer, Creditex, Inc., New York, USA:
In 2005, I evaluated about 10 tools for automated Java GUI testing. Our table models were very complex therefore for evaluation of the tools I designed few tests/criteria which dealt with cells' content and images. Neither of the tools could perform all tests. I contacted specialists from technical support, they either admitted that their tools could not do some specific tasks, or they tried to offer workarounds, which would be an option if I would not find a tool that "does it all."
When I evaluated QF-Test, then qftestJUI, it passed all my tests. Still I was a little bit hesitant because its scripting language was Jython, and learning a new language is a considerable effort, though an extensive array of standard nodes was very simple to use. Some of other tools had scripting language which I already knew; nevertheless eventually I made my mind and selected QF-Test reasoning that reliable performance was more important than my learning efforts.
Sean Kane, QA Manager, Intervoice, Dallas, USA:
This past year we looked at several automated testing tools for eclipse. Your new eclipse support is far better than the competition. Keep the improvements coming. Your team has been very supportive when ever we have needed it. I wish you and your team continued success.
Adriana Rottach, Elektrobit Automotive GmbH, Software Engineer Product Development, Erlangen, Germany:
Thank you very very much for your effort, I have never experienced such a customer-friendliness.
Dorit Rieur, Senior QA Engineer, Schema LTD, Israel:
The main reason we chose QF-Test was its compliance with Java and NetBeans. I must say I have composed a set of tests and hardly need any support. The tool is intuitive, and the manual usually helps me. This is indeed a great tool to work with. We are saving lots of testing time using the automation scripts.
Robert Jelinek, Tester, Mentor Graphics, Budapest, Hungary:
Your support team is easily the best I have ever worked with.
Huawei Luo, TIBCO Software Inc., USA:
QF-Test is the best GUI testing tool and has the best support team I ever saw.
Chris Stanbridge, Senior Quality Engineer, E-Health Research Centre Brisbane, Australia:
I am currently working with QF-Test pretty much on a daily basis. The intention is to automate the entire regression test effort for our system. Right now about 85% of the functional requirements are exercised by QF-Test. And of course the support is legendary, replies to all my questions within 12 hours and I'm on the other side of the world!
Suretec GmbH, Lohmar, Germany:
The support of your company are really great, I got the right answer to my question the same day.
Chetan Vij, QA Manager, GE Medical Systems, Bangalore, India:
I love the lightning quick responses. This has helped us getting a nice start with QF-Test and we are thrilled about it. Thanks for all the support!
Yuri Tsyganenko, QA Engineer, DataArt, Inc., Russia:
The help from QFS always was the most professional. Answers were very exact and detailed. The evidence is in each answer on the mail list! Moreover, besides the helpful information, there were always comments about further improvements. It's important to know the developers are aware of our problems and are doing the best to solve them. Help and support from QFS is the best I met! Thanks. Good job!
Simon, Shanghai, China:
QF-Test is the high effective regression testing tool, reduce lots of man days and time on regression testing, which is very important for us to verify the product quality if time or QA resource are limited.
