All in One - HP changes the way we automate and test
- Hewlett-Packard is incorporating three different components, previously available separately, into its HP Unified Functional Testing (UFT) automated testing application so developers can test all aspects of a multi-tiered application from a single interface.
- The company will also offer a cloud service that will allow developers to test mobile applications.
- UFT 11.5, due to be released early next month, has been updated to better accommodate this more rapid pace of development
- UFT 11.5 simplifies the testing process by combining a number of different tests into one screen
- Now, developers can test, from a single console, all three layers: the interface, the service layer and the database layer.
- The consolidation of features also better supports continuous integration, a practice of frequently testing the software being developed, through the use of tools such as Jenkins, to which UFT can be connected.
- UFT 11.5 also includes a new patented recognition technology that can scan applications and document how they operate.
