eValid Version 9 Multiplies Capacities for Complex Web Application Testing


San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 20, 2009

Software Research, Inc. announced a major new release of its eValid™ Website Test & Analysis Suite: eValid Version 9.

With an already rich feature set, eValid V9 expanded its features for testing complex web applications with: comprehensive DOM-element motion commands; an enhanced programmatic interface to most eValid commands and browser actions; and advanced DOM-based AJAX synchronization support.

This version offers major changes, including complete DOM manipulation support for data read/write operations, revised pricing, incorporation of the EPI feature as a standard feature in the WebMaster Bundle, continued DBCS support in the International Edition, cloud-computing support, and web-authenticated commercial license options to make life easier for third-party software testing firms.

In addition, the new release includes: new support to create “lite” (HTTP based) playbacks; commands to support testing of load balancers; new commands to support RIA monitoring data collection; and, available data converters to support standard network monitoring engines such as Hyperic, Zenoss, Nagios, GroundWork, and others.

“The new eValid V9 release adds a lot of capacity to an already powerful web application testing suite, and helps make eValid an industry standard for real-world web testing. And it does not make a difference whether you are running test applications for telecom, finance, healthcare, or the infrastructure for the railway or the restaurant business,” said Edward Miller, President of Software Research. “Testimonials, frustrations, and suggestions from web application professionals in different segmants of the industry have made it abundantly clear that it is necessary to test the deep inner workings of a browser to reveal why a web application is failing. Approximations from the desktop do not work and never have. We have been quietly working on expanding the testing capacities to run directly from inside the browser, for the resulting ease-of-use and for the general benefit of this community. By amplifying the test capabilities inside the eValid browser-based test engine this new V9 release meets these expectations directly,” Miller concluded.
