SmartBear Redefines How Functional and Performance Testing is Done

Date 2015/11/3 10:59:37 | Topic: Product News

SmartBear Software has announced a new version of TestComplete that redefines how functional and performance testing is done with script reuse. One of the world’s most recognized automated testing tools, TestComplete is now integrated with LoadComplete, SmartBear’s popular load testing solution for websites, mobile and Web apps. Customers deploying the new version are able to repurpose TestComplete functional test scripts for performance testing in LoadComplete.
“Our priority continues to be delivering high quality applications at speed,” said Henry Novak, Sr. SQA Automation Engineer at Computrition, Inc. “TestComplete’s integration with LoadComplete allows us to easily reuse existing functional tests as performance tests. This helps significantly reduce test creation time, and in turn, increase level of automation testing. Also, given the integration, we can leverage our existing manual testers to create robust performance tests.”

Expanding coverage while reducing testing time can be difficult to achieve for QA managers, especially when testers have to reinvent the wheel and create scripts from scratch every time a feature needs to be tested for performance and functionality. Rewriting different scripts for performance and functional testing results in redundant efforts, which in turn erodes efficiency gains achieved during previous stages of the software development lifecycle. Add to that, additional challenges arise from the fact that testers with a development background are hard to find.

TestComplete’s integration with LoadComplete makes it easy for QA teams to convert functional tests into performance tests. QA teams can increase their level of automation testing and improve time-to-market, thereby reducing test development costs and time. The facilitated reuse of functional tests as performance tests drives efficiency gains as the script logic needs to be written only once, which cuts down testing time and expands coverage. The tests created can then be run as a part of continuous build process to minimize handoffs and get rapid feedback. Most importantly, organizations can leverage their existing QA resources for both functional and performance testing, thereby not leaving any test creation and execution in developers’ hands.
