Jameleon 3.3-M3 Released!

Jameleon is a data-driven automated testing tool that is easily extensible via plug-ins. Features of applications are automated in Java and tied together independently in XML, creating self-documenting automated test cases.

This is a milestone(beta) release and includes 31 bug fixes/features, including a re-factor of the configuration files.

We were able to consolidate Environment.properties and jameleon-gui.properties into a single configuration file named "jameleon.conf". This file now exists in the base of the jameleon-test-suite directory. We also added a new configuration wizard in GUI. This release _will_ break everyone unless they read the changes report (http://jameleon.sourceforge.net/changes-report.html).

Jameleon 3.0.5 Released!

Jameleon is an automated testing framework that can be easily used by technical and non-technical users alike. One of the main concepts behind Jameleon is to create a group of keywords or tags that represent different screens of an application. All of the logic required to automate each particular screen can be defined in Java and mapped to these keywords. The keywords can then be organized with different data sets to form test scripts without requiring an in-depth knowledge of how the application works. The test scripts are then used to automate testing and to generate manual test case documentation. ... read more

2. Created an plug-in that controls IE through the
jiffie library.
3. Created a 3270 plug-in based around the commercial library, Jagacy.
