Parasoft Help Prevent Software Errors for Leading Companies

9/18/2003 - Parasoft, a leading provider of Automated Error Prevention (AEP) software solutions, announced that Bank of Montreal, Raytheon and SBC Communications have selected Parasoft products to help them prevent software errors.

By automating key error prevention practices such as unit testing, static analysis and load testing, Parasoft tools support the Automated Error Prevention (AEP) methodology. The AEP concept advocates following five simple steps to improve the software lifecycle by finding an error only once and preventing entire classes of the error from ever happening again.

Bank of Montreal recently chose SOAPtest, an automated tool for testing Web services and Enterprise systems built with SOAP. SOAPtest increases productivity by enabling users to begin testing Web services during development. SOAPtest can emulate both the SOAP client and server, then automatically generate functional and load test cases based on a WSDL file.

Raytheon selected Jtest, Parasoft’s automated unit testing and static analysis tool for Java. Jtest reduces time spent chasing and fixing software errors by automatically generating test cases to test code construction and functionality. Jtest also automatically enforces over 300 industry-respected coding standards allowing development teams to prevent the most common and damaging errors.

SBC Communications selected Insure++, an automated tool to detect errors in C and C++ code at runtime. Insure++ tests code from inside and out, then reports errors and pinpoints their exact location. Insure++ also performs coverage analysis, clearly indicating which sections of the code were tested. By integrating Insure++ into a development environment, users can save weeks of debugging time and prevent costly errors.

"These companies recognize that producing bug-free software is critical to their business," said Mark Johnson, Parasoft Senior Vice President of Sales. "By adopting AEP methodology, they can break the cycle of chasing and fixing bugs and actually reduce development time and expense by preventing errors before they occur."
