Redstone Software, Inc., has announced the release of Eggplant 3.0, a major upgrade to the tool for automated, cross-platform software testing. This release incorporates Universal Binary support for the new Intel Macs, a new text image generation technology, dynamic breakpoints, reverse connections, many new script capabilities including the ability to work directly with colors, and numerous other enhancements.
Eggplant’s new Text Image Generator creates images on the fly for any text with a given style, enabling scripts to find and work with textual elements on a remote screen without the need for pre-captured images. This provides numerous benefits including the ability to work with dates and other dynamic elements, without compromising Eggplant’s renowned independence from the system under test.
Eggplant is unique among software testing tools in its ability to use a single instance of the tool to test software running on virtually any platform, regardless of how the software was written. Current customers can use Eggplant to test Windows, Vista, Mac OS 9, Mac OS X, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, and Linux. As with all Eggplant updates, this release is available as a free download to all existing customers with a current maintenance agreement. Free trial licenses are available through a request form on the company’s website (http://www.redstonesoftware.com) for anyone wishing to learn firsthand about the benefits of “true user experience” testing and automation.
