Parasoft Supports OASIS and UN/CEFACT ebXML with SOAPtest 2.1

9/11/2003 - Parasoft, a leading provider of Automated Error Prevention (AEP) software solutions announced the general availability of SOAPtest 2.1 with support for ebXML, a modular suite of specifications that enables enterprises of any size and in any geographical location to conduct business over the Internet. ebXML was jointly developed by the United Nations Center for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT) and the Organization for Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS).

"Due to the increasing use of ebXML to build upon SOAP, we expanded SOAPtest 2.1 to support these new open standards for business-to-business services," said Gary Brunell, Parasoft Vice President of Professional Services. "Through our involvement with OASIS and ebXML we will promote the development of reliable and secure Web services that facilitate interoperability among partners across the Internet."

Parasoft recently joined OASIS as a contributing member and will become involved in OASIS ebXML technical committees. OASIS is a global consortium that drives the development, convergence and adoption of e-business standards.

"Industry support for ebXML is growing rapidly, and we are pleased Parasoft has joined OASIS to promote open standards for Web services," said Karl Best, OASIS Vice President. "ebXML has begun to make e-business Web services possible for any company or organization in the world by setting a standard for exchanging reliable business messages and communicating data."

About SOAPtest
Parasoft SOAPtest is an Automated Error Prevention product for Web services and enterprise applications built with SOAP. SOAPtest automatically performs server functional testing, load testing, and client testing with just the click of a button. It automatically creates test suites from WSDL documents to test every operation associated with those documents. The same test suites used for functional testing can be used for load testing and monitoring, enabling users to verify whether traffic levels, patterns, or combinations cause functionality problems or decreased performance. SOAPtest verifies that clients send appropriate requests to services, and are able to handle responses as expected. In addition to one-click server functional testing, load testing, and client testing, SOAPtest also works as a proxy server, enabling users to view and verify messages between a client and a Web service. By using SOAPtest throughout the software lifecycle, users can prevent errors and improve the quality and reliability of their SOAP services.

SOAPtest 2.1 runs on Windows 2000/XP, Linux and Solaris. Pricing starts at: $3495. For more information, please go to
