Seapine Software Announces QA Wizard 2.1 with Support for Testing Microsoft Windows Applications

Mason, Ohio -- August 5, 2003 -- Seapine Software, Inc., a leading provider of software development lifecycle management solutions, today announced the immediate availability of QA Wizard 2.1 for automated functional testing of Windows and Web applications. QA Wizard 2.1 includes a wide variety of significant enhancements, such as the ability to test Microsoft Windows applications, change control integration for better script management, functional load testing capabilities, and international language support.QA Wizard is a pioneer in the new generation of automated functional testing tools, which eliminate the complexity of script creation and reduce the learning curve that has traditionally hindered the deployment and acceptance of these tools. Its advanced scripting environment simplifies script creation, eliminates the debugging process, and reduces the impact of application changes on existing scripts."The ability to test Microsoft Windows applications has been the most requested feature since QA Wizard's release last year," said Alex Iosilevsky, Vice President of Automated Testing Solutions. "QA Wizard's unique ability to search and bind to Windows objects lets it handle many user-interface changes automatically. The result is far less script maintenance than has plagued earlier testing tools. At the end of the day, the goal of scripting regression testing is to save time. If you are continuously editing scripts to accommodate application changes, you are not saving time."Another key QA Wizard 2.1 feature is its integration with software change management tools, specifically Seapine's Surround SCM and Microsoft's (NASDAQ:MSFT) Visual SourceSafe. QA professionals can access their source control system from within QA Wizard 2.1's integrated scripting environment. Combining source control with an automated scripting tool facilitates team-based testing and script management.Unique to QA Wizard 2.1 is support for functional load testing, providing the ability to test functionality under load or stress conditions. Managed by a multiple script execution option, this feature allows multiple scripts to be executed simultaneously. Seapine does not limit the number of simultaneous scripts customers can execute on their computers.To address the needs of international customers and global companies, QA Wizard 2.1 includes support for the Unicode character set standard. Incorporating the Unicode standard allows QA Wizard to support most languages including multi-byte characters sets found in Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Hebrew and more.AvailabilityQA Wizard 2.1 for Windows and Web are available immediately through Seapine Authorized Resellers and Seapine Software.
