Share Article

Latest version includes major updates to the monitoring and reporting of stress and volume testing.

VersaTest Automator has enabled users to reduce testing time and effort which in turn has enabled them to expand their test coverage.

Ascert announced today the general release of VersaTest Automator version 1.7. This release contains a number of new features many of which, as is customary, were demonstrated at Ascert's annual User Group held in November in London. "As use of VersaTest Automator increases we need to ensure its users are given the best possible tools for managing and controlling the tests that have been created." says Simon Miles, Ascert's Product Architect for the VersaTest product line. "VersaTest Automator has enabled users to reduce testing time and effort which in turn has enabled them to expand their test coverage. This means that there are many more test cases being produced. Release 1.7 has expanded on features to help manage these tests."

Within this latest release, changes have been made to extend the way environment templates can share common data and tests across multiple similar test environments. This improves the maintainability of the large enterprise testing environments typically found in VersaTest installations. The existing test case search facilities have also been enhanced to allow a more refined search operation to be performed. The significant benefit is that it allows users to more easily find test cases that have particular fields and data.

Additionally, the release includes a new feature to give per-user persistence allowing the state and layout of the interface to be saved between uses. The user experience has been enhanced in other ways as well, in that panels and menus can now be customized based on user access levels. This allows a user’s experience of the product to be tailored depending on their operational role.

Also included in this release are enhancements to the documentation of test cases, allowing extra descriptive information to be included in a form readily understood by business analysts.

In addition to time savings in testing, VersaTest Automator decreases the time involved in analyzing testing results. With an easy to use GUI interface and “audit capture” functionality, the product increases both testing accuracy as well as ROI.
