RadView Ships Webload And Webload Resource Manager 4.5, Enhanced Web Application Testing Tools Wednesday 22 November 2000 PDF Print New, enhanced testing capabilities and user interface: adds usability and functional testing features to accelerate web application development RadView Software Ltd. (Nasdaq: RDVW) today announced immediate availability of its award-winning Web application testing and analysis solutions, WebLoad 4.5 and WebLoad Resource Manager 4.5. Enhanced features in version 4.5 include load generation performance optimisation, automated integrity verification, enhanced functional testing features, and improvements in ease of use and reporting options. WebLoad 4.5 is claimed to shorten and simplify development/deployment cycles, giving developers and QA staff the means to analyse and verify the scalability and integrity of Web applications prior to deployment. It features automatic functional testing, browser playback of tests, and the ability to configure a mix of test agendas, enabling more in-depth component-level analysis for more comprehensive verification of applications. The new SNMP interface and HTML-based reports give more detailed overviews and analyses of test data. WebLoad allows users to create 'virtual clients' which simulate the actions and keystrokes of users performing tasks on the website being tested. Any number of these can be combined to simulate real-world load conditions. The software can also do standard performance tests to detect how well a site runs under varying traffic levels. The software verifies successes and failures, and presents detailed information about each simulated transaction. "RadView has done an impressive job in establishing themselves in the Web application testing and analysis market," said Dick Heiman, research director, application development and deployment, IDC. "With the new 4.5 versions of WebLoad and WebLoad Resource Manager, they are continuing to offer testing solutions that help companies efficiently simulate the conditions of real world Web applications, enabling them to identify performance issues earlier in the lifecycle and accelerate their e-business success." "Because Web applications are becoming more complex and their time-to-market is shrinking, testing must move to an earlier position in development lifecycles," said Theresa Lanowitz, research director in the application development group, Gartner Group. "To increase customers' return on investments, automated software quality solutions must be able to share testing resources across teams, departments and locations. By using common resources to bridge fragmented working teams, organizations can significantly accelerate the successful deployment of their e-business applications."
