Parasoft Unveils Java Solution to Prevent Software Bugs

6/12/2003 - Parasoft, a leading provider of Automated Error Prevention software and solutions, announced the general availability of Parasoft JavaTM Solution, a complete package of automated tools, services and the best practices needed to effectively prevent errors in Java applications.

"We wanted to provide a comprehensive solution for improving software quality," said Adam Kolawa, Parasoft CEO. " Today’s economic climate does not allow companies to invest in all types of tools only to have them end up as ‘shelf ware,’ they need results from the products they buy. The Parasoft Java Solution not only provides technically advanced tools to automated practices, but our services team guides development organizations through implementation and teaches them how to effectively prevent software errors within their current development process."

Designed to support Automated Error Prevention (AEP) methodology, the Parasoft Java Solution dramatically improves how organizations build software by integrating error prevention and monitoring techniques into the full lifecycle of any Java development project. The Solution combines source control and nightly build systems with proven preventative techniques such as coding standards, static analysis, unit testing, and regression testing to find and prevent development errors.

Every team member within the development lifecycle is equipped with the tools and techniques necessary to automatically prevent software errors. Developers use Parasoft tools on their desktops to perform automated unit testing, coding standard enforcement, regression testing. Architects can control and customize the coding standards, unit tests, and regression tests that are used during development, nightly builds, and testing. Architects also receive reports from nightly builds enabling them to monitor all phases of development. In addition, project Managers receive nightly status reports allowing them to make informed decisions about application deliverables, production deadlines, and milestones.

Five Steps of Implementing Parasoft Java Solution:

  1. Evaluation--Parasoft's Professional Services team will evaluate a company’s development procedures and processes, gain an intimate understanding of their overall manufacturing methods and identify challenges.
  2. Customization--Parasoft customizes the solution to improve each company’s development process.
  3. Integration--Parasoft integrates needed error prevention procedures into a company’s development process, source control systems, and nightly build processes.
  4. Training--Parasoft trains and mentors each member of the development organization to ensure they understand the value of Automated Error Prevention and follow the process effectively.
  5. Reports--Parasoft creates the reports needed to help maintain and use this new automated error prevention system by customizing reports templates to each team member’s specifications.
