.TEST v1.0 significantly improves Web services quality and security
MONROVIA, CA. (May 28, 2003) - Parasoft, a leading provider of Automated Error Prevention software solutions, today announced the release of .TEST 1.0, a brand new unit testing tool that automatically tests classes written on the Microsoft .NET Framework without requiring developers to write a single test scenario or stub.
"Were pleased Parasoft is supporting the .NET Framework with this technology," said Mike Kass, product manager for the Developer and Platform Evangelism Division at Microsoft Corp. "As companies are forced to do more with less, .TEST will enable them to accelerate the development of reliable applications."
With the click of a button, .TEST automatically performs a complete range of static and dynamic testing on .NET Framework assemblies. From traditional to extreme programming, integrating .TEST into the development process automates a vital testing technique for any programming process, preventing software errors and ensuring that code is structurally sound, maintainable and portable
As the .NET Framework promises businesses a new flexible foundation for Web-based computing, enabling more and more applications to become interconnected, the concern over security increases. .TEST offers development teams working with the .NET Framework a simple way to ensure code quality, security and reliability.
"By automating unit level construction testing, .TEST enables development groups to test for unexpected inputs," said Parasoft CEO Adam Kolawa. "Those unexpected inputs are often the cause of security breeches. Unit level testing is a great way to identify possible problems and to prevent them from causing bigger problems down the line."
.TEST is an automated unit testing and static analysis tool for .NET Framework development that analyzes assembly code of tested assemblies and, based on gathered information, performs different types of analysis to help prevent errors. .TEST:
- Automatically performs static analysis on assemblies, enforcing over 200-industry-respected coding rules that verify code construction and reduce the possibility of introducing errors into applications
- Automatically tests code construction and functionality. .TEST reads code and determines how to unit test it. All unit tests generated by .TEST are fully customizable
- Provides detailed coverage information for both Intermediate Language (IL) and Source Code (src) statements.
- Automatically maintains code integrity through automated regression testing
- Works with any programming language that targets the .NET Framework, including Microsoft Visual C# .NET, Visual Basic .NET, and managed Visual C++ .NET.
TEST runs on the Windows NT, Windows 2000 or Windows XP operating systems and works with Microsoft Visual Studio .NET. .TEST is available as a stand-alone tool, or as part of Parasofts Web services Solution. Pricing starts at $3495 for single user (machine locked). Pricing is the suggested list for the United States only.
