SOASTA has announced the latest release of CloudTest with a new Java module to enable developers and testers of Java applications to test any Java component as they work to "easily scale" it.
Direct-to-database testing here supports Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and PostgreSQL databases — and this is important for end-to-end testing for enterprise developers. Also, additional in-memory processing enhancements make dashboard loading faster for in-test analytics.
"As applications are developed, databases are often tested in isolation while being built. In response to a common enterprise customer request, CloudTest can be directed to execute SQL workloads directly to the database for performance testing and insert data into a database before a test or clean up after a test," said Tom Lounibos, SOASTA CEO.
New CloudTest capabilities include Direct-to-Database testing. CloudTest users can now directly test the scalability of the most popular enterprise and open source SQL databases from Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and PostgreSQL.
With the new custom Java module, anything that can be done in Java can be tested at scale with CloudTest, such as testing streaming video as well as popular protocols like WebSocket and UDP.
"Users can now use test creation shortcuts such as recording directly to executable test clips and easily share test assets and components. Leveraging platform enhancements to CloudTest's in-memory analytics engine, users will experience improvements in the seamless visual reporting during tests and how quickly tests load for execution," said the company.
