squishing radControls

This month Telerik announced a formal partnership with froglogic, the maker of a powerful GUI testing platform called Squish. Squish for Web enables developers to easily create automated cross-browser GUI tests for their Ajax enabled applications. The Squish IDE provides tools that allow you to easily record all actions made while interacting with a site and then define specific "verification points" to validate that the GUI is working as expected. The easiest way to understand the Squish for Web software is to checkout this brief screencast.

For their part in this partnership, froglogic will provide full support for building tests with RadControls and Squish. Anyone looking for a robust solution for testing their web app's Telerik powered GUI should definitely take advantage of this partnership and request a Squish evaluation today. Squish for Web runs 1,600 EUR (or about $2,100 USD) for the Basic edition and 2,400 EUR (or about $3,200 USD) for the Pro edition. Not cheap, but worth it if you want automated GUI testing.
