Detroit-based Compuware says it has made enhancements to its automated mainframe testing solution Topaz for Total Test, which now provides unit, functional, integration, and regression testing capabilities in a single product, an industry-first for automated testing, according to the company.
Compuware says the updated product, the result of unifying its Topaz for Total Test with XaTester, which it acquired last July 2018, will “fundamentally change how developers and testers create, execute, and automate tests.”
“Automated testing was the missing link to true mainframe agility and developmental operations,” says Chris O’Malley, CEO of Compuware. “Without it, large enterprises found it difficult to rigorously safeguard the quality of their mission-critical mainframe applications as digital demands increase. Topaz for Total Test fills that gap, enabling our customers to automate the design, iteration, and execution of tests, boosting development velocity, quality, and efficiency.”
Among the enhancements in Topaz for Total Test is what Compuware calls the one-user experience, which enables developers to run unit, functional, and integration tests from the same test scenario using one editor and one execution dialog and see combined test results in one report.
Other improvements include:
- Automated functional testing in a web browser.
- Advanced, flexible test scenario support.
- Support for multi-program integration testing.
