Parasoft, a provider of automated software testing solutions, announced the latest release of Parasoft SOAtest and Virtualize with expanded support for continuous integration (CI) platforms. To support continuous testing, new plug-ins for continuous integration enable users to parse test results from automated test executions back into common CI platforms such as Bamboo, Jenkins, Microsoft VSTS, and Team City.
These test results fully integrate into existing continuous delivery (CD) pipelines along with specific information indicating exactly what happened under the hood, enabling teams to facilitate their go or no-go decisions required for true continuous testing.
In addition to enhancing support for the CI process, the new release of Parasoft SOAtest also helps businesses by extending support for organizations leveraging behavior-driven development, to augment the next evolution for test case creation in which human-readable language can be efficiently translated into test cases.
Through the new integration with Cucumber, which facilitates human-language test creation, Parasoft SOAtest customers can associate Gherkin plain-text feature specifications with SOAtest test cases, simplifying the task of associating business requirements with testing. This integration requires no scripting, which opens the testing process to more people and allows business analysts to drive test case execution without writing any code.
The new release provides users with greater access to create, manage, manipulate, copy, and sort existing data, as well as import and export data from the data repository infrastructure to extend data coverage, the vendor said.
