Offering addons to test UltraLightClient-based applications more easily, a
new 6.2 version of Canoo's Java library for Rich Internet Applications was
announced today. The new ULC 6.2 test extensions offer an improved way for
developers to test the user interface of their applications using JUnit and
Jemmy, says the Swiss-based company.
"Functional testing with the new UltraLightClient test framework is more
reliable and takes into account the client/server setup of UltraLightClient
applications, as well as special UltraLightClient features such as lazy
loading," said Canoo CTO Bruno Schaeffer.
"This improved test framework takes care of synchronization and enables
end-to-end testing with no additional infrastructure code or Jemmy
workarounds," he added.
Canoo Engineering is a Swiss software company specializing in products and

just succeeded as CEO of the company: Scott McNealy.

than you," Schwartz wrote, apparently echoing word for word an e-mail he
sent to his CEO to boost his morale after a particularly savage press attack
two years ago, some time in 2004.

Canoo has announced the release of ULC XML, a tool that allows developers to
create UltraLightClient user interfaces from XML files. ULC XML is a free and
open-source tool for Canoo’s Java RIA library. It is available for
download at the ULC XML project site (https://ulcxml.dev.java.net/) at
ULC XML is an UI generator for UltraLightClient applications. The XML file is

turning. Hasso Plattner and Henning Kagermann, the co-Chairmen and co-CEOs of
Europe’s largest software vendor, SAP, are apparently all set to announce
