VMWare Open Sources Windows Version Of Linux Desktop Testing Project

Today Diksha Gupta of EFY have published an article about Windows GUI automation tool.

Summary from the article:
Linux Desktop Testing Project is a black box (GUI) testing library written in Python. LDTP works based on GNOME accessibility stack, so applications that are accessibility enabled can be automated. Currently GTK, Java Swing, Mozilla XUL, LibreOffice UNO, QT >= 4.8 are supported on Linux. Any GUI application running in Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD with the previous requirement can be automated. With recent addition of WinLDTP, tests in Windows environment can also be automated. This library has been tested with Windows XP SP3, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8 beta. If the same application exists on both the platforms, with our experience automating VMware Workstation product, we have reused 95 per cent of test automation code across both the platforms, which is a huge win for the QA team. Just develop in one platform and make the minimal required changes to run on other platform and your tests are ready!
Thanks Diksha :-)
