Modern development teams must accelerate delivery without sacrificing quality. The 2021.1 release of the Parasoft Continuous Quality Suite of API testing tools for enterprise applications includes updates to Parasoft SOAtest, Virtualize, and CTP.
This release of the Parasoft suite focuses on prioritizing workflows that testers can use to maximize their automated testing efficiency. Enhancements include a new requirements traceability view, tighter integration with DevOps CI/CD in the cloud, and more accurate creation of virtual assets for an improved service virtualization experience.
Parasoft SOAtest delivers fully integrated API and web service testing capabilities that automate end-to-end functional API testing. Streamline automated testing with advanced codeless test creation for applications with multiple interfaces (REST & SOAP APIs, microservices, databases, and more). SOAtest reduces the risk of security breaches and performance outages by transforming functional testing artifacts into security and load equivalents. Such reuse, along with continuous monitoring of APIs for change, allows faster and more efficient testing.
Get a better handle on the quality of your deliverables by correlating test cases with requirements and user stories for immediate feedback. Continuously validate your level of risk by integrating automated API testing into your CI/CD pipeline.
Incorporate functional testing (smoke, integration, and end-to-end) as well as nonfunctional testing (load, performance, and security) earlier in the development cycle. Identify potential defects before they pose greater debugging challenges and derail releases.
Reduce the complexity of testing APIs with API and web service testing tools that are easy to learn — no coding required. Quickly build a stable library of test scenarios and easily reuse them for load, performance, and security testing.
Parasoft SOAtest integrates directly into your CI/CD pipeline and, when coupled with Parasoft Virtualize for service virtualization, makes continuous testing a reality. Gain insights into your functional testing results with the informative dashboards and diagrams, detailed reports, and intelligent analytics provided by Parasoft CTP and DTP.
Enables teams to integrate Continuous Testing into their CI infrastructure.
The Parasoft Findings plugin enables results from Parasoft analysis and testing tools to be integrated into Jenkins reports and gate build and release pipelines on those test results.
The Parasoft Environment Manager plugin enables the rapid configuration of test environments and execution of test jobs.jenkins.io
Parasoft Selenic adds critical debugging information to your Cucumber-driven UI test automation. Adding Parasoft Selenic to your existing BDD execution provides insight into which tests executed and which tests failed. If tests failed, Selenic provides actionable feedback to quickly diagnose the root cause.cucumber.io
Enables dynamic deployment of Parasoft tools, for example with a template that includes Parasoft Virtualize for deployment of dynamic simulated test environments.docker.com
Parasoft Jtest can both create and execute JUnit 4 and 5 tests, enabling Parasoft to consume, process, and report test results and coverage data from JUnit tests. Parasoft Selenic records UI actions and creates pure Selenium tests in JUnit 4 and 5.junit.org
Enables organizations to associate risk to business requirements by correlating static analysis findings and test results with requirements, user-stories, and defects. Test results can be both sent to Jira and aggregated within DTP for full bidirectional traceability. In addition, creation of new issues/defects can be automated based on review, and triage of, test failures and static analysis violations in Parasoft DTP.atlassian.com/software/jira
Enables the correlation of automated test results with tests in Jira using the Xray plugin. In addition, test results can be aggregated with the user stories within DTP for full bidirectional traceability.getxray.app
Integration with GitLab source control enables Parasoft tools to define scope and determine authorship during code analysis and test execution.
In addition, integration of Parasoft tools into the pipeline enable teams to gate build and release pipelines on the test results of those tools.about.gitlab.com
Enables Parasoft Virutalize to connect to a Rabbit MQ broker and consume messages on a specified queue; adds support for the RabbitMQ transport to applicable messaging client tools in Parasoft SOAtest.rabbitmq.com
