Updated Java Library for Rich Internet Applications Released by Canoo

UltraLightClient 6.2 enables end-to-end testing with no additional infrastructure code or Jemmy workarounds

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 services for enterprise web applications.

In addition to offering add-ons to test UltraLightClient-based applications more easily, this new 6.2 version offers the following features:

  • Custom labels for slider.
  • Cell-based popup menus to add a context menu to every cell in a table, a tree, a list, or a table tree.
  • A number of small improvements for existing user interface components such as:
    • Adding component orientation - from left to right / right to left,
    • Scrollable tabs,
    • Window decorators,
    • Table column events.
  • Spinner component support.
  • Possibility to customize the InputBlocker during server roundtrips to provide feedback to users.
  • Enhanced extensions to access the client file system.
In addition, ULC Visual Editor for Eclipse has been updated to run with this new version of UltralightClient and supports the new ULC features.
