Parasoft Offers Preview of SOAPtest 2.0

3/19/2003 - Parasoft, the leading provider of Automated Error Prevention software solutions, announced a preview of SOAPtest 2.0, its automated testing tool for Web Services. The new version, due out in May, will be previewed at the Web Services Edge show in Boston, March 18-20.

SOAPtest’s automated technologies help development teams prevent errors by performing server functional testing, load testing, and client testing with just the click of a button. In addition, developers can also use SOAPtest as a proxy server to view and verify messages between a client and a Web service.

"If Web Services are really going to change the distributed computing landscape, the need for such applications to be reliable and error-free is more critical than ever,” said Gary Brunell, Parasoft vice president of professional services. “SOAPtest is designed to prevent errors in Web Services from the earliest stages of development."

According to ZapThink Research, "XML and Web Services are increasingly becoming part of the everyday architecture and framework for IT. Web Services and their resulting business process transformations will eventually break down many of the barriers among enterprises. This ‘seamlessness’ will gradually extend over multiple enterprises, finally merging with and describing the economy as a whole."(1)
