ADDING MULTIMEDIA SmartBear Announces Support for Automated Mobile Testing
BEVERLY, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Software, a leading provider of quality and performance management
solutions used by more than one million software development and
operations professionals worldwide, today announced a new version of TestComplete.
One of the world's most recognized automated testing tools and winner of
a 2013 Dr.
Dobb's Jolt Award, TestComplete introduces support for automated
testing of native applications for mobile phones and devices as well as
mobile web applications. TestComplete 10 includes an open, extensible
platform that allows third party testing tools to be tied into the
TestComplete automation framework. With these advancements, TestComplete
now empowers any tester, both novice and advanced, to create, manage and
run automated tests for any desktop, Web and mobile application.
The rapid growth of mobile continues to transform the software industry.
In Q4 2013, SmartBear conducted an international online survey, "The
State of Mobile Testing
2014" that confirmed ensuring quality is the greatest challenge for
mobile application developers and is the key to success in the mobile
space. Advanced TestComplete functionality including object recognition,
scripting, automatic test execution, object spy, visualizer and
reporting now apply to automated testing of mobile applications.
"Demand in the mobile space is forcing companies to rely more heavily on
developers and testers to create, deploy and maintain complex
applications at an increasingly faster pace," said Niclas
Reimertz, Vice President, roduct Strategy and Management at
SmartBear. "With its mobile testing capability, TestComplete is a unique
and seamless solution for comprehensive testing of applications across
desktop, Web and rapidly growing mobile platforms. This next level of
test automation allows customers to increase development agility,
accelerate time-to-market of application delivery, reduce testing costs
and deploy their applications with confidence."
The TestComplete Platform, included with TestComplete 10, delivers
important capabilities for extensibility. With the TestComplete
Platform, users can consolidate multiple testing methods and tools into
one unified testing framework. For example, customers can combine manual
tests, unit tests and Selenium tests into a single test case.
Additionally, when companies extend or customize application objects,
they can lose the ability to automate testing of their applications. The
TestComplete Platform, with its SDK, creates an easy way for partners
and customers to develop extensions that support unique testing
TestComplete 10 also offers other enhancements including support for
Microsoft (News - Alert) platform technologies including Windows 8.1 as well as support
for Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 and Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2013
as well as updated support for Embarcadero.
"We see organizations seeking to closely coordinate mobile development
and popular IDEs with intuitive and effective quality solutions -- the
velocity of change and the unforgiving, public nature of mobile software
failure make costs prohibitive," said Melinda Ballou, Program Director
for the Application Lifecycle Management and Executive Strategies
service at IDC,
a leading research firm based in Framingham, Mass.
TestComplete Mobile is available now with Android (News - Alert) support. TestComplete
Mobile with iOS support is currently available in beta with full support
later in Q1. SmartBear is demonstrating TestComplete 10 at Mobile+WebDevCon,
January 28 - 30 in San Francisco, CA (News - Alert). For more information, visit: http://mobilewebdevconference.com/.
