AgitarOne for Mac OS X arrives this month as a Java developer automated testing tool that now includes a 64-bit Mac OS X server which supports Mac OS X 10.6 and above.
Mac OS X developers will now be able take advantage of AgitarOne's three main components: JUnit Generator, Agitator, and Functional Coverage Tracker.
JUnit Generator automatically writes up to 250,000 lines of JUnit code per hour. The firm's VP of technology Dale Brenneman suggests that this will mean that programmers can focus on developing and maintaining code, instead of writing tests.
NOTE: Agitator utilizes "software agitation technology" with which developers validate the expected behavior of their code and discover unexpected behaviors as the code is written.
This software agitation is “probably the coolest and most effective feature I've seen in a JUnit test automation platform, and AgitarOne pulls it off effortlessly," writes Dr. Dobb's Contributing Editor and Jolt Judge Mike Riley.
Functional Coverage Tracker tracks code coverage for functional testing of Java applications. It uses a coverage agent to obtain code coverage data during your testing of Java applications, under any Java runtime environment. This can include testing of functionality for any test methodology and any test phase (e.g., unit, integration, system, acceptance).
This release (v5.4) with MAC OS X support also provides compatibility for the recent Eclipse Juno version (3.8 and 4.2), support of applications using CGLIB and AspectJ, and other enhancements.
