Parasoft WebKing 3.5 Integrates Automated SOAP testing and Web Services Verification

6/27/2002 - Parasoft, a leading provider of automatic error prevention software, announced the upgrade of WebKing, a comprehensive testing tool that automates key elements involved in developing, deploying, and maintaining reliable multi-tier Web sites. The new version automatically analyzes server log files, and then creates virtual users that mimic actual user paths and traffic patterns; it also introduces features that automate both SOAP testing and other complex test scenarios.

The increasing demand for advanced Web technologies has led to an overwhelming need for companies to produce high-quality Web applications and Web services within a short time period. To stay competitive, businesses must efficiently produce error-free applications and services that will work on demand. Development teams can achieve this by focusing on preventing errors and testing during all phases of the software development life cycle. Numerous industry studies have repeatedly substantiated that the sooner a problem or bug is identified, the cheaper it is to fix, and the less work is needed to solve the problem. Automating the error prevention process for Web development is essential to accomplishing this task and helping businesses stay competitive and profitable.

The release of WebKing 3.5 makes it easier than ever to verify and improve application reliability throughout the development process. This tool allows developers and QA testers to work together more efficiently by giving them a single tool that spans the entire development life cycle, from content flow and functionality verification to automated testing and deployment of web applications.

New features include:

"This revolutionary tool delivers a comprehensive testing solution which enables developers and QA professionals to produce high quality applications on time and under budget," said Jim Sherburne, Senior VP of Marketing at Parasoft. "The combination of WebKing's automated error prevention capabilities and advanced functionality provide developers and testers a fast and easy way to deploy reliable and robust Web applications."

WebKing 3.5 is available for Windows NT/2000/XP, Linux, and Solaris. WebKing starts at $3,995 and WebKing SOAP Edition starts at $6,495. Pricing is the suggested list price for the United States only.
