Monrovia, CA (Vocus) April 29, 2009
Parasoft Corporation, leading provider of automated solutions and infrastructure services that improve software quality and the development process, today announced the new release of Parasoft's SOA Quality Solution, a full-lifecycle quality platform for ensuring secure, reliable, compliant business processes. To support teams facing the complexities inherent in business process and system integration testing, Parasoft helps teams prevent errors involving the integrated components -- as well as reduce the complexity of testing in today's distributed, heterogeneous environments.
"In most cases, organizations do *not* have the capability to create and execute end-to-end tests. And the extended test scenarios they do create are traditionally brittle, with a limited life span," says Wayne Ariola, Parasoft VP of Strategy. "Parasoft's latest release allows organizations to very easily create, execute and maintain end-to-end test suites that can be initiated from rich user interfaces, through the logic in the message layer, through the implementation component, to the database (or mainframe) and back, validating the entire business process."
Comprehensive, Integrated Quality Platform for Complex Distributed Environments
The complexities associated with today's heterogeneous enterprise environments can impede a QA/development team's ability to rapidly construct and execute effective tests for end-to-end business processes -- ultimately impeding the team's ability to deliver and evolve secure, reliable, and compliant applications on time and on budget. Parasoft SOA Quality solution offers significant new capabilities to help teams achieve their quality goals in light of these challenges.
End to End Testing - Parasoft helps teams continuously validate all critical aspects of complex transactions, which may extend through web interfaces, backend services, ESBs, databases, and everything in between. By promoting rapid, incremental development of such end-to-end test suites, this ensures the reliability of the underlying implementation.
Easy to test Web UIs (user interface), RIAs (Rich Internet Applications) and AJAX applications- Parasoft customers working with web applications, including RIA and AJAX apps, can now leverage this integrated solution to test Web UIs/GUIs through the message layer to the database and back-end--with detailed visibility into how transactions pass through the various system components. The team is guided into developing robust, noiseless regression tests for rich and highly-dynamic browser-based applications.
Team Workflow and Task Management- Parasoft recognizes quality is a collaborative effort that involves many different participants across the organization--from service and Web interface developers, to QA, to business analysts. By establishing a sustainable workflow where quality tasks are automatically generated, assigned, and distributed to the appropriate team members, the solution makes the entire team more productive.
Gain visibility into Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) -- Parasoft can now visualize and trace the intra-process events triggered by tests, facilitating rapid diagnosis of problems directly from the test environment and enabling teams to continuously validate whether critical events continue to satisfy functional expectations as the system evolves. In addition to providing visibility into test transactions, Parasoft can monitor the system while real transactions execute, and then generate tests automatically from these messages.
Next-Generation Performance Testing - Parasoft provides customers a centrally-managed load test configuration and execution environment, which is better aligned with how teams and roles are structured within an organization. Existing end-to-end functional tests are leveraged for load testing, removing the barrier to comprehensive and continuous performance monitoring.
Platform-Awareness - Parasoft helps organizations deliver business applications faster by facilitating interactions with and visibility into the infrastructure stack. The latest release features built-in vendor-specific awareness to TIBCO, Progress Sonic, Oracle/BEA, IBM, Software AG webMethods, and other platforms. This reduces the learning curve for organizations defining complex tests and understanding how tests pass through heterogeneous systems.
