ZATS Mimic 1.1 is now released to support more operations such as upload, download, custom operation and many advanced features including cookie handling, passing arguments to included ZUL, and more. ZATS Mimic offers the ability to create test cases for applications to verify functionality and features without the need of any application servers such as Tomcat or Jetty, enabling tests to be run faster and using less resources than any other testing tools.

In agile software development, developers modify their codes frequently for requirement change or refactoring. Unit tests are therefore also performed frequently to ensure quality of the software. In some cases, developers may deploy their Java web applications to a server and test it within a browser. However, writing an automation test to control a browser is an issue, and testing for different browsers is also not an easy job. Not to mention, running a test in an application server is time-consuming and can be an agile developer's darkest moment.

ZATS Mimic 1.1 aims to solve this problem saving developers from jumping off a cliff during the long awaited time. ZATS is capable of testing ZK applications without the need of any application servers such as Tomcat or Jetty enabling tests to be run faster and using less resources than any other testing tools. Additionally, no browser needed meaning tests are browser independent and tests pure application functionality.

ZATS Mimic can also be used with most popular unit testing frameworks such as JUnit and TestNG to provide an easy out-of-the-box way to test your ZK Java Web applications.

ZK is always pushing the boundaries to shorten the development lifecycle of a project. This productivity increase is now available even when testing thanks to ZATS which enables you to test large sections of your application quickly and easily by virtue of its automation; the speed at which tests can be written due to the intuitive API along with the fact that application servers are no longer needed puts restarts as a thing of the past.
