Today we announced the latest version of Wind River Test Management, which takes software test optimization to the next level.
With this release, we have unified our testing solutions for VxWorks, Linux and Android under one umbrella. All the capabilities of Wind River Framework for Automated Software Testing (FAST), our solution for Android compatibility testing, have now been merged into Wind River Test Management. This includes all the ready-to-run test assets, more than 26,000 tests in all, which are now available as Wind River Test Management for Android, with support for the latest version of Android – Jelly Bean – already available!
Also new in this release is a comprehensive package for security testing. Our new Fuzz testing package enables testers to ensure the application they are building rely on robust, secure protocols, and efficiently find unknown vulnerabilities, in both in-house and third-party software. Powered by market-leading technology from Codenomicon, the Fuzz testing contained in Wind River Test Management enables software testers to incorporate security testing into their day-today QA routine, without the need for special hardware or for deep security expertise.
Additionally, current users of Wind River Test Management will immediately notice a simplified workflow. We have spent considerable amount of effort to streamline common usage scenarios – reducing keystrokes and mouse-clicks wherever possible, rearranging tabs and screens so as to minimize the need to hop around different areas of our application, and making more efficient use of available screen real-estate, to provide essential information in an easy-to access way . Enhancements to the presentation of information are probably best seen in our newly designed test reports. Without sacrificing any detail in the output, we employed simple but efficient layout changes and other enhancements such as color coding that make reports shorter, easier to read and more aesthetically pleasing.
There is much more to say about the new release – from the newly introduced concept of test libraries to the new test development IDE – and I will hopefully cover those in upcoming posts. Stay tuned!
