SmartBear Software today announced TestComplete 8.2, the latest release of its automated testing tool. A 2010 Jolt Award winner, TestComplete 8.2 brings advanced test automation to a vast community of developers working with Adobe Flash Platform tools and Flex for the development and deployment of cross-platform rich Internet applications (RIAs).
“As RIAs become more widely adopted on the web and in enterprises, developers and testers are looking for more efficient and comprehensive functional testing tools to speed up application development time, improve software quality and increase developer productivity,” said Dave Gruber, Group Product Marketing Manager at Adobe Systems. “Using the new release of SmartBear TestComplete, developer and QA teams can strengthen the system development workflow around Flash Platform tools to support the on-time delivery of stable and reliable RIAs that meet customer expectations.”
TestComplete 8.2 simplifies and speeds-up automated testing for Adobe Flash Builder, Adobe Flash Professional and Flex with advanced testing controls and seamless integration, supporting:
• Full access to Flash Platform runtime objects – The transparent testing mode providing full access to all ActionScript objects and visual assets and their native properties, previously available only for Flex, is extended to Flash Professional in TestComplete 8.2. This new capability allows users to enhance their tests so that they write and read values directly to and from Flash Platform runtime objects. Users can also use native object properties with exclusive TestComplete Name Mapping for more robust object identification.
• Automated test preparation – TestComplete automatically opens up Flash Builder and Flex applications for testing, which greatly simplifies and speeds up the testing process. As no changes or recompilation are required for the tested Flash Platform application, what is tested is exactly what will be deployed or shipped to customers. This ensures consistency in testing and helps eliminate potential hard-to-find defects.
