Inflectra announced the release of Rapise 5.1, the latest version of its Rapise test automation platform. Rapise is the most comprehensive and powerful automated testing solution on the market. With its latest version, Rapise includes a new scriptless test automation framework called RVL that simplifies the creation and maintenance of automated test. Rapise 5.1 makes automated testing available for everyone, not just programmers and developers.

The new version of Rapise provides a completely new way of writing tests. In addition to the ability to create tests in JavaScript, Rapise lets you record tests using its powerful test recorder and object spy and generate tests in a table-based scriptless framework called RVL. Each of the recorded actions and verification steps is now represented by a simple set of rows in the table, with the parameters and values displayed alongside.

The new Rapise Visual Language opens up the door to automated testing for testers and QA professionals who don't want to become programmers and need a way to easily create and maintain tests without the overhead of writing code by hand.

Unleash the Power of Excel

Now one the really exciting things about RVL is that it's ultimately stored as an actual Microsoft Excel file (XLSX) file inside the Rapise project. So in addition to doing simple editing within the Rapise visual editor, you also have the option to open the file in Excel natively:

This opens up many exciting possibilities of being able to use Excel formulas to auto-generate test data from another worksheet, perform validation tests by doing calculations in Excel and comparing them with the results returned from the application. You can now use Excel and Rapise to have a powerful, easy to use, yet incredibly extensive test automation framework.

Other Enhancements

In addition to the new scriptless visual language, Rapise includes several other major enhancements:
* The REST web service testing functionality has been enhanced to make it easier and quicker to verify the data being returned by the API.
* A new set of web libraries has been added to make it easier to test Dynamics 365 for Operations ERP applications.
* The application has been updated to use the new Inflectra branding, with UI changes also made to enhance readability
