London, UK (PRWEB UK) 25 October 2011
Parasoft Corporation, leading provider of automated solutions and infrastructure services that improve software quality and the development process, today introduced a new release of Parasoft SOAtest. Parasoft SOAtest accelerates the testing and validation of complex, composite applications – ensuring secure, reliable, compliant business processes. With Parasoft’s time-proven solution, enterprises can accelerate software delivery and eliminate costs associated with testing delays, brittle scripts, and software defects.
Visual analysis features in the latest release of Parasoft SOAtest assist organizations to rapidly pinpoint the root cause of failures within complex component-based architectures. For instance, the new Event Details capability aggregates event details from tests running in SOAtest as well as from remote systems under test. This provides access to all relevant information in a single location—with easy-to-use controls for zeroing in on the critical information needed to debug the behavior of a test scenario that is not producing the expecting results.
Another new analysis feature allows Parasoft SOAtest to connect to a JMS or MQ broker (e.g., Progress Sonic MQ/ESB, IBM WebSphere MQ, JBoss JMS) to retrieve the list of queues provided by that broker and display the messages currently sitting on each queue. You view queues, messages, and message contents—as well as delete messages. This visibility into (and control over) the messages present on queues is helpful when analyzing the interaction between the test scenarios and the system under test.
“Parasoft SOAtest has been on the market since 2002. It has matured with the growing complexity that large enterprises face while evolving SOA or composite applications,” said Wayne Ariola Vice President of Strategy for Parasoft Corporation. “The latest release of Parasoft SOAtest addresses the distributed nature of both applications and development teams. The ability to visualize and pinpoint failures allows for the rapid identification and remediation of software defects. In highly iterative or agile software development shops, these new capabilities will save teams a significant amount of time.”
In addition to these new visual analysis capabilities, the new release also features:
- Core message testing enhancements related to JSON, WADL, REST, WS-I, EDIFACT.
- An extension for defining SOAtest tests within HP Quality Center.
- Numerous load testing enhancements, including significant extension to its performance testing monitors and reporting capabilities.
About Parasoft SOAtest
Parasoft SOAtest—part of the Parasoft Test quality lifecycle management solution—automates web application testing, message/protocol testing, cloud and security testing. Simplifying end-to-end testing, it helps teams continuously validate all critical aspects of complex transactions, which may extend beyond the message layer through a web interface, ESBs, databases, and everything in between. With the complementary Parasoft Virtualize, dev/test teams gain a rapid and simple way to exercise applications in incomplete, constantly evolving, or difficult-to-access environments— further removing roadblocks to performance testing, functional testing, and agile/parallel development in complex composite environments.
Parasoft is recognized by software development professionals as the leader in software development lifecycle automation. By integrating software development management, quality lifecycle management, and dev/test environment management, we help teams deliver better software faster. Since 1987, over 10,000 companies—including 58% of the Fortune 500—have turned to Parasoft to ensure that quality software can be produced consistently and efficiently.
