Atlassian Bonfire 1.0 is a new agile testing tool that allows users to quickly test their web applications and report any bugs that arise. Bonfire integrates with all major browsers to allow rapid capture of comprehensive bug reports when testing web applications.
In today’s agile software development teams, the responsibility of quality rests with everyone on the team. While QA engineers often provide comprehensive testing, developers and managers alike also perform tests to detect bugs early and frequently, which helps to accelerate the software development lifecycle.
“Agile teams need a way to test early and often, to be able to easily submit bugs and issues as they arise, and to report on the status of the testing. That’s where Bonfire comes into play,” said Mike Cannon-Brookes, Atlassian CEO and co-founder. “Bonfire makes it easy for everyone on an agile team to test their applications.”
Quality testing keeps up with the speed of agile development
Bonfire has four key features for allowing teams to test early and often:
• Submitting bugs directly from the browser
• Add annotated screenshots with each bug
• Setup test sessions to track activity against a requirement or user story
• Create bug report templates to pre-populate meta-data and repetitive content
Users can access Bonfire from within any of the major internet browsers, test their applications, and then submit a JIRA bug report without leaving their screen.
Bonfire is available for a free 30-day evaluation at Atlassian’s website. Licenses can be purchased starting at just $10 for 10-users and is free for open source and non-profits. For more information, visit http://www.atlassian.com/software/bonfire.
