Appvance, Inc. Adds Unified Test Automation for Java Applications Without Coding

Appvance, Inc. has introduced codeless test creation for Java thick client applications. With no coding required, developers and testers can use recording technology to test browser-based or standalone Swing apps, AWT, SWT, Oracle forms, Oracle Fusion, Oracle Fuse, all J2ME CDLC-compliant apps, JAVA EE and many others. One set of recorded tests can be used for automated functional tests, performance tests, soak tests and synthetic APM with no code to write, debug or maintain. The deep and rich feature set includes unparalleled and detailed control of simulated users to provide the most realistic and comprehensive test scenarios. The latest release also provides support for cloud and agile development. Appvance has combined load and performance testing seamlessly with a continuous integration process. A real-time analytics dashboard that enables users to quickly isolate and eradicate bottlenecks and issues while tests are running is a transformative breakthrough. Through Appvance's Live Active Virtual Users real-time analytics dashboard, Appvance helps test teams isolate issues as they happen, down to the millisecond, as well as pause and resume while making changes. Testers also get complete stack traces, along with outputs and errors for active virtual users, so they can easily investigate and intricately assess error log details of active transactions. Simulate millions of users at the UX level, on-demand, providing real transaction times right to the eye of the developer (including all client-side code), and run performance tests that mimic real-world user behavior, all while providing a secure and scalable product that can run in the cloud or on-premise.

Appvance, Inc. Announces the Release of Appvance PerformanceCloud 2

Appvance, Inc. announced the release of Appvance PerformanceCloud 2 (APC2), the next generation of its groundbreaking, testing platform. APC2 now has the broader and deeper testing capability of any product available and is the only platform on the market now to offer true rapid beginning-to-end performance testing. Most test tools are either cumbersome, bloated with archaic features or lack the ability to truly test at a level beneficial for present complex apps and websites. APC2 combines advanced features with ease of use, allowing test teams to integrate APC2 easily into the current performance improvement and load testing processes. Its advanced feature set allows for test teams to develop complex and comprehensive testing scenarios, plus repurpose functional tests to data-driven performance tests all with detailed simulated user controls previously unattainable anywhere. And test scripting with APC2 is up to 20x faster than other tools. The deep and rich feature set includes unparalleled and detailed control of simulated users to provide the most realistic and comprehensive test scenarios, plus maintaining compatibility with industry standard script types such as JMeter, Selenium and Jython, which run seamlessly in APC2 and take advantage of all features. The latest release also provides incomparable support for cloud and agile development along with combining load and performance testing with the continuous integration process. APC2 will arm serious testers with a real-time analytics dashboard that helps quickly isolate and eradicate bottlenecks and problems while tests are running. Through APC2's Live Active Virtual Users real-time analytics dashboard, Appvance helps test teams isolate issues as they happen, down to the millisecond. With APC2, testers also get complete stack traces, along with outputs and errors for active virtual users, so they can easily investigate and intricately assess error log details of active transactions. APC2 gives testers the ability to simulate millions of users at the UX level on-demand, providing real transaction times right to the eyeball (including all client-side code), and run performance tests that mimic real-world user behavior, all while providing a secure and scalable product that can run in the cloud as well as behind a customers firewall. APC2 has added an enormous breadth of features to meet the ever-growing needs and requirements of testing teams from large and most demanding enterprise customers, including: advanced analytics and reporting: Helping testers identify application performance issues faster with the least amount of effort, including: honing in on a specific time period, creating report templates, viewing response times of each element, location based reports, test error logging of full page error results, and increased monitoring of database and application server performance. · Enhanced cloud support: Giving testers a wider array of Amazon Web Services instances for load generation, while offering new capabilities for IBM SoftLayer cloud. Autonomous Agile stories: Agile stories can run autonomously each time code is checked into the continuous integration platform, offering a more comprehensive REST API library. Mobile and network simulation: Testers can gauge response times over simulated 3G, 4G, LTE or Wi-Fi network bandwidths (WAN Emulation). Java support: APC2 comes equipped with Appvance Java Technology (AJT), a proprietary technology that allows deeper direct testing of java-based applications including AWT, SWT, and Swing apps. Additional features include: Support for up to 1,000 browsers per generator node; iteration based testing; APC2 Designer now has recordable think times; supports IP spoofing at the user level for all script types; full REST API to all features; centralized management of resources; includes action APIs. Advanced control and definitions include: Ability to comment out steps, define completion criteria, cloud clusters and regions, define ramp times, set interval times and set sleep time/iteration pacing, test case offsets, and to set global think times, manage cache and cookies across all browsers during test, and to specify time-out conditions. Designed to meet the rigorous demands of global companies and enterprises, APC2 addresses the needs of performance testers looking to pinpoint issues that could cost companies customers, revenue and brand loyalty. For serious testers of large-scale, enterprise-caliber apps and websites, APC2 allows them to create test scenarios in hours, instead of days or weeks, enabling performance issues to be located quickly with little or no coding necessary.
