SmartBear releases new automation tool
SmartBear, the test automation specialist headquartered in Somerville, Boston, has released a new tool it says will improve its testing capabilities: TestEngine, which is designed to automate test execution in CI/CD pipelines. The launch coincides with the release of SmartBear's ReadyAPI version 2.8, an API quality management platform for functional, security and load testing.
ReadyAPI can be used to test API architecture including RESTful, SOAP and GraphQL. SmartBear said this latest version will enable users to execute ReadyAPI on a central resource that is integrated with their development process.
TestEngine is designed to run tests in parallel and provides a web interface for added visibility, SmartBear said. This allows users to queue tests, control their execution and view testing analytics.
Gail Shlanksy, Director of Products at SmartBear, said: “We continue to deliver new capabilities in ReadyAPI, and this release allows us to deliver expanded ML-based automation, a simplified user experience, and a more robust set of integrations, as well as unveil our newest product, TestEngine.”
“Everything in this product family is designed to help our clients accelerate the delivery of quality APIs,” Shlansky added. “Building on the support for GraphQL, built-in Zephyr integration, and Intelligent Assertion Creation delivered earlier, we have once again delivered new capabilities that will help our users test and deliver even more software faster with ReadyAPI 2.8. And with the release of TestEngine, we’re also giving our open source SoapUI community a centralized resource to more effectively manage and run their tests.”
