QF-Test from Quality First Software is a cross-platform software tool for the GUI test automation specialized on Java/Swing, SWT, Eclipse plug-ins and RCP applications, Java applets, Java Web Start, ULC and cross-browser test automation of static and dynamic web-based applications (HTML and AJAX frameworks like ExtJS, GWT, GXT, RAP, Qooxdoo, RichFaces, Vaadin, PrimeFaces, ICEfaces and ZK). Version 4.0 added Windows support for the Web browser Chrome, support for JavaFX and the AJAX frameworks jQuery UI and jQueryEasyUI were added.
QF-Test (the successor of qftestJUI, available since 2001) enables regression and load testing and runs on Windows and all major Unix systems. Its commercial application is primarily performed by testers and developers in the field of Quality Assurance. Since December 2008 a webtest add-on is available which allows for test automation of browser-based GUIs (like Internet Explorer and Firefox) in addition to its Java GUI testing functionality which was extended to JavaFX in July 2014.
The tool also offers a batch mode, allowing to run tests unattended and then generate XML, HTML and JUnit reports. Thus the tool can be integrated into existing build/test frameworks like Jenkins, Ant or Maven. Another mode is the so-called Daemon mode for distributed test execution.
A specific integration with many test management tools like HP Quality Center / HP ALM, QMetry, TestLink, SQS-TEST/Professional Suite, Rational Quality Manager, Scapa TPP and Imbus TestBench is available, also some integrated pragmatic small-scale test management (including various reports).
There is a test debugger (enabling arbitrary stepping and editing variables at run time) and a fully automated dependency management that takes care of pre- and postconditions and helps isolating test cases. Data-driven testing without the need for scripting is possible.
