Agitar Woos QA and Testing Pros

Agitar Technologies has expanded its portfolio with the release of its eponymously titled AgitarOne 5.3 product, which now features a new "Functional Coverage Tracker". Traditionally targeting a core Java developer audience, Agitar's latest gambit is intended to win hearts and minds among data professionals tasked with quality assurance and testing.

Designed to deliver code coverage reports from functional tests carried out under any runtime environment, Agitar's new tool produces functional coverage data that is collected during Java application testing. This data is then presented for analysis in the same GUI that existing users of AgitarOne will be accustomed to, with the product's continuous integration and command-line interface capabilities.

"AgitarOne provides actionable code coverage information not only for automatically generated JUnit tests, manually created JUnit tests, and software Agitation — but now also for functional testing of Java applications in various phases of the development cycle, including integration testing, system testing, and user acceptance testing," said Agitar's VP of technology, Dale Brenneman. "Furthermore, the Functional Coverage Tracker assists users regardless of their current development methodology, whether Agile, traditional 'Waterfall', or other."

"AgitarOne is well known for excellence in Java unit testing for the developer," says David Belhumeur, CEO. "We believe this new product will please our current users and attract new users focused on the QA and testing side of the house."

Other advancements in AgitarOne include Eclipse 3.7 Indigo support, direct Windows 64 bit hosting to provide performance improvements for Windows 64 bit users, and enhanced use of Cruise Control when using the latest Tomcat version.
