Test Automation for non-Web or Mobile apps with LeanFT

Selenium and its cousin Appium provide a powerful, open source solution for Test Automation for Web and Mobile applications, but what about native Windows apps, fat-client Java apps, fat-client C#/.NET apps, SAP, and other platforms?

HP’s LeanFT provides a powerful, standardized format for coding Automated Tests for Web applications, iOS and Android applications, SAP, .NET Web Forms, WPF, and Java applications in Java or C# that closely follows the Selenium/Appium paradigm: objects on the screen are identified via a locator, then can be queried for their content, type into, clicked on, etc. It is integrated into Eclipse and Visual Studio (with an IntelliJ version on the way), and provides an easy to use Object Identification Center for creating and embedding locators.
For anyone familiar with Selenium WebDriver or Appium Test Automation with Java, LeanFT provides an easy route to testing many different types of applications.
