Parasoft Releases Jtest 5.0

Parasoft Releases Jtest 5.0

Parasoft has announced the general availability of Jtest 5.0, the first development product of its type to automate all aspects of Java unit testing and coding standards compliance. This latest version is equipped with new JUnit test generation capabilities, automated code correction capabilities, and other features designed to simplify team-wide Java error prevention.

Based on the Parasoft AEP Methodology, Jtest is designed to help developers catch errors early in development and prevent entire classes of similar errors in the future by automating practices such as unit testing and coding standard checking. "Automated Error Prevention is most effective when implemented within a team environment," said Gary Brunell, Parasoft VP of Professional Services. "We've enhanced the team support so that development groups can efficiently work together to produce reliable software. We also completely redesigned the user interface to make testing as fast and easy as possible, and to seamlessly integrate into IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer and Eclipse IDEs."

What's new in Jtest 5.0:

  • JUnit format unit test cases are automatically generated and executed for instant verification and white-box testing; Jtest also runs any valid JUnit test cases, monitors their coverage, and uses them for automated regression testing
  • Quick Fix feature automatically corrects violations of over 160 coding standard rules and adds Design by Contract comments to the code
  • Memory leaks are now detected during unit testing
  • Team Server manages team-wide sharing of test settings and files
  • New test configuration and execution options - such as the ability to test only code modified after a certain date and the ability to run tests based on preconfigured or customized test scenarios - make testing faster and more natural
  • New user interface integrates seamlessly into IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer and Eclipse IDE to allow developers to test without leaving their IDE

    The new JUnit test case generation feature allows developers to complete a class, click a button, then have Jtest generate and execute JUnit format test cases that verify the class. Automatically-generated test cases are designed to achieve maximum coverage, expose uncaught runtime exceptions, and verify requirements expressed using Design by Contract. Automated test case generation allows developers to create a more effective test suite in less time. Test case development is traditionally the most time-consuming part of the unit testing process. With Jtest, developers do not need to write any code to generate a foundational set of test cases that exercise each class, and they can create more test cases by adding a minimal amount of code to the automatically-generated test cases. If developers know JUnit, they already know how to understand and extend the generated test cases.

    The new Quick Fix feature can automatically correct over 160 coding standard violations and add Design by Contract comments to the code. With Quick Fix, developers can not only identify coding problems as soon as they complete a class, but also correct the problems immediately.

    Jtest is 5.0 available for Windows 2000, Windows XP, Linux, and Solaris. Pricing starts at $3495 for a single user, machine locked license (Pricing is intended for customers based in North America only).

    When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
