SmartBear Software, the leader in software quality tools for the connected world, announced a new version of TestComplete that redefines how functional and performance testing is done with script reuse. One of the world’s most recognized automated testing tools, TestComplete is now integrated with LoadComplete, SmartBear’s popular load testing solution for websites, mobile and Web apps. Customers deploying the new version are able to repurpose TestComplete functional test scripts for performance testing in LoadComplete.
“Our priority continues to be delivering high quality applications at speed,” said Henry Novak, Sr. SQA Automation Engineer at Computrition, Inc. “TestComplete’s integration with LoadComplete allows us to easily reuse existing functional tests as performance tests. This helps significantly reduce test creation time, and in turn, increase level of automation testing. Also, given the integration, we can leverage our existing manual testers to create robust performance tests.”
Expanding coverage while reducing testing time can be difficult to achieve for QA managers, especially when testers have to reinvent the wheel and create scripts from scratch every time a feature needs to be tested for performance and functionality. Rewriting different scripts for performance and functional testing results in redundant efforts, which in turn erodes efficiency gains achieved during previous stages of the software development lifecycle. Add to that, additional challenges arise from the fact that testers with a development background are hard to find.
