LiquidTest - Real Browsers, Real Results

Image Why is it so hard to test dynamic and Ajax based web pages? They work in your browser, so why do so many test tools struggle with this? This was a core focus for JadeLiquid as we developed LiquidTest , our brand new automated Web Application testing framework.

Built upon Browser Automation, LiquidTest consists of an Eclipse rich client application (and Plug-in) for recording Browser actions in Firefox™ and Internet Explorer™ and outputting succinct and robust

test cases in Java™, JUnit and TestNG, C# NUnit, Ruby and Groovy™.

Core LiquidTest functionality:

  • Browser Automation - Firefox and Internet Explorer
  • Succinct cross-platform script generation and execution
  • Easy recording and replay of test cases
  • Integrations with JUnit, Continuous Integration, Eclipse, .NET and other frameworks
  • Language support for Java, C# (.NET), Groovy and Ruby
  • IDE plugins (Eclipse) and standalone, and headless server component
  • Open SDK for plugins and custom integrations
  • Headless test case execution and scalable across a Grid
  • Data-driven support: Powerful GUI, and direct support for Excel spreadsheets
  • Advanced testing features: Expectation model - no sleeps! Drag and drop support etc.

The LiquidTest framework consists of three separate editions; Developer Edition, Tester Edition and Server Edition.

The LiquidTest Developer Edition has been created for Software Developers aiming to complement their Agile software development practices by integrating Functional Tests (as Unit Tests) into their Software Development Process. LiquidTest supports headless test case execution which allows for regression tests at every step of the build process. Support for Continuous Integration means that the LiquidTest Server can be integrated on your Continuous Integration machine and utilized in an automated test execution manner to provide complete Functional and Acceptance Test coverage. The LiquidTest Server Edition is a Server component specifically designed to add support for headless LiquidTest test case execution on Continuous Integration servers. See our Continuous Integration and LiquidTest documentation for more information on LiquidTest/Ant/Continuous Integration setups. The LiquidTest Tester Edition is designed for Test and Quality Assurance teams that have less technical knowledge than the Development team. LiquidTest Tester Edition outputs concise scripts in LiquidTest Script (Groovy derivative) which in turn is powerful but not syntactically complicated. LiquidTests recorded with the Tester Edition can be replayed with the Developer

Edition and vice-versa. This provides close integration between Development and Test/QA teams.Download a Free 30 day trial to see for yourself why LiquidTest is a unique offering in the Automated Software Quality market:
