Parasoft WebKing is Certified IBM Ready for WebSphere Validation

1/30/2003 - Parasoft, the world’s leading provider of Automated Error Prevention software, announced that it has received Ready for WebSphere* Studio Software validation from IBM, for integrating Parasoft WebKing with WebSphere Studio and Eclipse. Parasoft provides customers with an error prevention solution that complements the WebSphere Studio family to accelerate next-generation Web development.

“We are pleased to have Parasoft as a member of the IBM family of partners,” Scott Hebner, Director of WebSphere marketing, IBM said. “WebKing offers software teams working within the WebSphere and Eclipse environments the ability to streamline their development process and significantly improve the reliability of the Web applications they produce.”

With Ready for WebSphere Studio Software validation, WebKing adds error prevention technology for Web development to both the WebSphere and open source Eclipse platforms, allowing developers to perform key error prevention tasks. The WebKing plug-in allows users to run WebKing's CodeWizard (to enforce good coding guidelines/standards), XML Validator, and Spellchecker within WebSphere Studio or the Eclipse Workbench. For users with more advanced needs, such as functionality verification, load testing, regression testing, traffic analysis and accessibility verification or deployment, the plug-in allows them to transfer projects into WebKing, then test them using the WebKing GUI. WebKing error messages are reported in the WebSphere Studio task console, and the reports are added to the WebSphere Studio developer project.

As an IBM business partner, Parasoft is working closely with IBM and Eclipse on a variety of key projects, including the recently announced Hyades project, to leverage the latest technology and provide seamless solutions that meet the needs of their common customers.

“WebSphere and Eclipse are rapidly becoming the environments of choice for many development teams,” said Gary Brunell, Parasoft vice president of professional services. “We support IBM’s vision and are happy to extend improved functionality and ease of use to our customers.” Brunell adds. “In 2002 we were one of the first companies to receive Ready for WebSphere validation for Jtest, our automated unit testing tool for Java, and we were eager to do the same for WebKing.”
