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.
