Seapine Software Ships QA Wizard 1.5--Next Generation Automated Testing for E-Business Applications

Mason, Ohio -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- June 25, 2002 -- Seapine Software, Inc. extended its line of software lifecycle management products to include automated testing with the immediate availability of QA Wizard version 1.5. QA Wizard eliminates the complexity and reduces the learning curve that has traditionally hindered the rapid deployment of automated testing tools. Its advanced scripting environment allows the production of test scripts 6 to 22 times faster than currently available tools.QA Wizard replaces the traditional language-based scripting interface employed by such products as Mercury Interactive's (NASDQ:MERQ) WinRunner and Rational's (NASDQ:RATL) Rational Robot with an error-free point-and-click interface. This new approach to script development dramatically reduces the cost of automated testing by lowering the time it takes to build test scripts, allowing non-programmers to write scripts, and eliminating script debugging from the process.“Language-based automated testing tools require many weeks of training and a background in structured programming techniques to proficiently create a suite of scripts,” said Richard Riccetti, President of Seapine Software. “QA Wizard's better approach to script construction enables companies to quickly receive a return on their automated testing tool investment by reducing the learning curve and eliminating the need for a programming background. And, QA Wizard is priced aggressively to ensure more companies can take advantage of its benefits.”But, ease of use is only half the story. QA Wizard also delivers the power needed to produce advanced automated scripts for today's most demanding e-business applications. QA Wizard excels in its unique approach of incorporating a user friendly interface with integrated data and a robust scripting engine—all powered by an object-oriented database. QA Wizard also integrates with Seapine's comprehensive defect management solution, TestTrack Pro, to facilitate managing and resolving test failures.Early reviews from QA Wizard beta site users reflect Seapine's claims. “QA Wizard helped us quickly automate our testing process and reduce our testing time for each release. We were even able to start our automation early in the development cycle,” said Uma Uppalapati, a Quality Assurance Engineer at San Francisco, CA-based Three Deep. “QA Wizard is the best fit for rapid automation of any web application.”Later this year, Seapine will add support to QA Wizard for scripting Java and Windows applications. And, Seapine's forthcoming load testing tool, Load Wizard, will support scripts developed with QA Wizard.AvailabilityQA Wizard 1.5 is available immediately to customers worldwide through Seapine Authorized Resellers and Seapine Software at For more information about QA Wizard or to request a 30-day evaluation version, please visit
