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
of its award-winning Web application testing and analysis solutions,
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
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
and keystrokes of users performing tasks on the website being tested. Any
number of these can be combined to simulate real-world load conditions.
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

"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

"Because Web applications are becoming more complex and their
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
resources to bridge fragmented working teams, organizations can
significantly accelerate the successful deployment of their e-business
