Testing Qt with Squish Learn how to test your Qt application

Learn how to test your Qt application

What is the most important thing about a tool for automatic testing?

Often the answer is not that it will reliably test your application, but instead that it will reliably test your application tomorrow  when you have adapted the application slightly!

The ambition of this training course is that you will learn to use Squish for testing your application, over and over again – with much reduced efforts versus before.

The techniques you learn involve recording a script with Squish and then adapting this into a piece of reusable code that is much less likely to break with the next version of the application it tests.

Content Covers:

  • Recording your first script, Verifying the Result
  • Getting stable scripts by programming
  • Optional, Python Introduction and/or Java script Introduction
  • Refactoring your scripts
  • Object Identification, Data driven testing, Qt Event Handling, File Access, GUI Coverage
  • Behavior-Driven Testing
  • Customized Object Identification, Automatic test runs, Special Purpose Squish
