Pros and Cons
  • "froglogic Squish is one of the most desired solutions if you are having a Qt as a framework and if you are looking at GUI regression testing. froglogic is a part of Qt as a company."
  • "There had been a lot of improvements with froglogic Squish already. There were some scenarios in which this particular solution was available in different flavors. They have pulled everything together in one solution. There were some monitoring systems, which were missing out from the solution earlier. They have a centralized dashboard for monitoring the test cases and their execution. It's a full-blown solution, there are not many glitches in terms of something missing out of the package."

What is our primary use case?

froglogic Squish is a tool used for GUI regression testing.

If any of our clients have a particular GUI and they want to do a GUI regression testing or fully automated testing and specifically have the framework, such as Qt, then this solution is a unique solution for that use case.

What is most valuable?

froglogic Squish is one of the most desired solutions if you are having a Qt as a framework and if you are looking at GUI regression testing. froglogic is a part of Qt as a company.

Earlier Qt and froglogic were technical partners, but now froglogic as a company has been taken over by Qt. For anyone who is working on the Qt framework and would like to perform a GUI regression, the froglogic Squish product should be the product for them to use. It is seamless in functionality and with the operating system. If you're working on a Windows or Linux environment it works well for both environments.

What needs improvement?

There had been a lot of improvements with froglogic Squish already. There were some scenarios in which this particular solution was available in different flavors. They have pulled everything together in one solution. There were some monitoring systems, which were missing out from the solution earlier. They have a centralized dashboard for monitoring the test cases and their execution. It's a full-blown solution, there are not many glitches in terms of something missing out of the package.

The froglogic Squish solution is only handling GUI regression testing, this is its forte. However, a lot of clients are looking into performance testing associated with it. If a performance testing capability can be added as a part of it, this would bring great value. froglogic Squish has a code coverage solution and they have done a pretty good job on it. The penetration testing could be added as a separate module, this would be beneficial.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using froglogic Squish for approximately six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

froglogic Squish has been in the market for a long time and it is stable. They do not have too many releases which can have drawn backs. When they release an update there are not any problems with them.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of froglogic Squish is good enough. There were certain image recognition scenarios, in which we had a glitch.

I would rate the scalability of froglogic Squish a four out of five.

How are customer service and support?

The Technical support of froglogic Squish is excellent. I'm a part of that team directly, and I can tell you that there's no problem with their abilities.

I rate the technical support offered by froglogic Squish a five out of five.

How was the initial setup?

froglogic Squish is a very simple solution to implement. It is a plug-and-play solution. The solution does not have a complicated implementation it is easy.

What other advice do I have?

froglogic Squish does not have a lot of competition. If somebody is specifically working in a Qt environment and they're looking for a GUI regression, this is one of the tools that they have to look into.

It's recommended not only by Qt, but it is also one of the best available tools in the market.

I would rate froglogic Squish a nine out of ten.

An all-in-one feature that can cross-cut from QT applications
Pros and Cons
  • "This product can work with QT applications and cross-cut from them on Windows or Mac."
  • "ID could be improved with suggestions of names, variables or class."

What is our primary use case?

We are customers of Froglogic and I'm an automation quality assurance engineer.

What is most valuable?

This product can work with QT applications and cross-cut from them, both on Windows OS and on MAC, as well as on mobile operation systems like iOS and Android too. The other value to this product is that it is an all-in-one feature. It has an IDE for developing and debugging, inspector, utilities squishrunner to run test suites and squishserver to connect to AUT via cli.

What needs improvement?

I'm not completely satisfied because although the ID is good, it could be improved with suggestions of names for some method, for example, or variable, or class. I'd like to see suggestions for options. I'd also like the solution to be faster because a project is initially saved quickly, but after an hour of working, saving takes longer and I need to reload IDE and turn all of them on to improve speed. 

They could have better support for scheduling jobs in Jenkins. As things stand, continuous integration is very poor, and when you work in production you need many more settings in order to tune it, to be a Web user interface, for example, which is currently impossible. And there are just a few basics I think you can manage in Jenkins, because Froglogic made some plug-in to Jenkins that connects Squish and Jenkins, but the plug-in is not as good as  expected, and should be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for 18 months. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product is quite stable, I've only had a few crashes.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I believe that the solution is scalable, because in the latest version of Squish, they started a new feature working in a network. I haven't tested it yet but I believe it's scalable. For now, I'm really the only one in the company using the product. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I think the licensing price is okay. I believe for one person, the cost is around 2,000 Euros. That's the initial cost, after that you buy support and it cost 800 Euros, which is much lower, It's a one-off purchase but without support you miss the updates. 

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution an eight out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
