Parasoft Releases Latest Edition of SOAtest, Adds Machine Learning
Automated software testing specialist Parasoft has released the latest edition of its Parasoft SOAtest suite of tools. The company is promoting the use of machine learning techniques in SOAtest’s Smart API Test Generator, which it claims allow testers to ”efficiently create meaningful API test scenarios using AI and ML.” The new release allows users to use their organisations’ existing test inventories and train the AI engine to automatically create API test templates.
This is Parasoft’s bid in the highly contested space of automated or partly automated test creation. It builds on the introduction of SOAtest’s Smart API Test Generator in May.
The new release is aimed at enhancing AI-driven test creation with machine learning. Users can train SOAtest's Smart API Test Generator to create test scenarios based on organization-specific rules that define how their organization tests their business logic.
According to the company, by adding this additional logic into the traffic parsing process, Parasoft SOAtest learns the relationships between different test steps to intelligently connect them together into scenario-based regression suites.
