Parasoft Rolls Out SOAtest 5.5 SOA Testing Solution

Parasoft Corporation, the leading provider of automated solutions and infrastructure services that improve software quality and the development process, announced the availability of Parasoft SOAtest 5.5. Parasoft SOAtest 5.5 adds new testing capabilities to its comprehensive and collaborative test suite and is designed specifically to increase productivity and efficiency for development teams working in complex Service Oriented Architectures (SOA), including those working in the Microsoft .NET environment.

Parasoft SOAtest 5.5 is the first SOA testing solution to offer full capabilities for multi-protocol environments, including Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). The latest in a series of platform support capabilities, Parasoft SOAtest 5.5 allows .NET developers to exercise messages in multiple protocols as well as the proprietary Microsoft standards. Parasoft SOAtest 5.5 integrates fully with Microsoft Visual Studio Team System for Software Testers, allowing developers to share, manage and execute Parasoft SOAtest projects, receiving results directly into Microsoft Visual Studio.

“We’ve been customers of Parasoft SOAtest for many years now and have seen the product evolve to include features and flexibility to help support AOL’s needs,” stated Hemadri Dasari, Principle Software QA Engineer of AOL. “Parasoft SOAtest is a critical component to our SOA lifecycle to enforce quality as a process and not a task.”

The Parasoft SOAtest 5.5 release also delivers a highly automated capability to create intelligent stubs. The intelligent stubs emulate the behavior of a running system, allowing the development organization to test services in context of an applications actual behavior and not the live running system. This saves tremendous time and resources.

Parasoft SOAtest is available for Windows, Linux and Solaris.
