Share Article

TRICENTIS®, a global leader in automated software testing and quality assurance, announces a major release of its award-winning test management solution, TOSCA Testsuite™. Release 7.6 features significant new functionality that saves time and increases testing efficiency and effectiveness.

Automated Software Testing with TOSCA Testsuite
With TOSCA Test Data Management costs in manual testing are reduced by up to 30% and degrees of test automation exceeding 90% are now possible, even for complicated test cases.

TRICENTIS’ ongoing initiative to stay tuned with technological trends and developments, as well as the commitment for the broadest platform support overall, has a new name: TOSCA TBox.

TBox provides:

  • Broader support of cross-browser testing (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome) - automate once, run as often as you like across different browsers and technologies
  • Support of any XML-based data structure
  • Support of business-based recovery to detect changes in the business logic that could impact your automation logic

TRICENTIS Founder and Managing Partner Wolfgang Platz says, “We are pleased to announce TOSCA Release 7.6. One of the highlights is our next-generation platform for automated software testing, TBox, that brings to the market both increased test automation productivity and innovative QA functionality. The enhanced TBox platform makes software test automation even easier, especially when customizing the application. The delivery of the latest XBrowser Engine means that customers can test a variety of different browser technologies with test cases that they only need to create once in plain English. Sometimes a defect can create a situation where the tester is literally stuck and can’t go forward with the testing. For example when a button doesn’t function properly, and the tester can’t get around this error. TBox also greatly facilitates the functional recovery process by defining test case recovery scenarios on the business level. For this situation TOSCA delivers the ability to recover the test and keep on working. This allows for continuous testing without interruption – again in plain English and without scripting.”

TOSCA 7.6 also delivers a seamlessly integrated component for Test Data Management. TOSCA’s new Test Data Management is the first solution in the market that provides the perfect test data for test cases – covering all levels of test data complexity with ease. Now, testers and business analysts will never need to worry about depleting their pool of test data.

Gartner Research Director Tom Murphy about the importance of efficient test data management: “Test data management should be part of a comprehensive data life cycle management strategy. Organizations must ensure that accurate data and metadata are available during development, testing and training, while protecting privacy and sensitive data. This is increasingly challenging when creating services that are shared with external partners, or when consuming externally provided services. Tools will provide much-needed automation to lower costs and drive more-efficient testing cycles.” (Hype Cycle for Application Development, 2012, published July 30, 2012)

According to Franz Fuchsberger, Managing Partner, “The lack of appropriate test data is recognized as both the major cost driver of manual testing and the greatest constraint to test automation. TOSCA Test Data Management is the perfect antidote. It is a powerful solution that matches test data objects to test cases perfectly while keeping track of the state transitions that data objects may undergo during test. With TOSCA Test Data Management costs in manual testing are reduced by up to 30% and degrees of test automation exceeding 90% are now possible, even for complicated test cases. If you are looking for improvements in Agile testing, how can you accomplish this without improving the efficiency of the test data for all testers?”

The TOSCA model-based approach marks a paradigm shift in automated software testing, empowering non-technical users to quickly create automated business test cases in plain English and configure them for multiple operating systems, browsers, and smart devices. TOSCA’s OneView Technology provides leapfrog advances in software testing, software management, and test automation technology and delivers a robust, cost effective, model-based solution that sets TOSCA apart from its competitors.
