I'm checking an open source test management tool for my company. The main options are Xqual and Testlink.

In the past I worked on Testlink, played a bit with Xstudio.

Our product is written in Java, and has Web UI.

It need to have good integration with JIRA, Hudson, SoapUI, Selenium.

I'm looking for opinion form people that worked on both of them.

  • Looks like this question is an update to your previous quesion sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/5244/…. Could you update your previous question by editing it, instead of multiplying questions about the same? – dzieciou Nov 22 '12 at 6:55
  • Also you mention Xstudio and Xqual but they are the same product, namely XQual Studio. Correct? – dzieciou Nov 22 '12 at 21:00
  • What's you're experience so far with TestLink and XStudio? – dzieciou Nov 22 '12 at 21:01
  • Why do you want test management tool that integrates with SoapUI if your app's only interface is, as far as I understood, Web UI? – dzieciou Nov 22 '12 at 21:02

Testlink is still the leader a lot on the open-source market however there has not been much changes in the last years and some people start saying it's a dying project :( maybe just a rumor but anyway it's not been very active recently... IMHO XStudio is the best choice by far. It has great features and it's growing fast. It has even better features than QC in some area and the list of interfaces to test automation framework supported is impressive (Selenium, Webdriver, SoapUI are included). The good thing also is that XQual provide an optional commercial support (same model as MySql). Just my 2 cents,


+1 for XStudio. We integrated more than 4 automated test frameworks with our XStudio instance 2 years ago and it's doing the job nicely. I recommend it.

Edit: Btw, yes XQual and XStudio is the same thing. XQual is the brand, XStudio is their product.

  • What test frameworks have you integrated? – dzieciou Nov 25 '12 at 20:22
