About Jtest
Jtest is an Automated Error Prevention product that automates Java unit testing and coding standard compliance to help developers produce reliable code in record time. Jtest analyzes classes, then generates and executes JUnit-format test cases designed to achieve maximum coverage, expose uncaught runtime exceptions, and verify requirements that were expressed using Design by Contract. Additional tests can be added by extending the generated test cases and using new or legacy JUnit test cases. Jtest also checks whether code follows over 380 coding standard rules (plus any number of custom rules) and automatically corrects most rule violations. With the click of button, developers can identify and prevent problems such as uncaught runtime exceptions, functional errors, memory leaks, performance problems, and security vulnerabilities.

In addition, Jtest can standardize and manage Java error prevention across a team and support the Parasoft AEP Methodology, a new methodology for improving software quality and reliability in a team environment. Implementing Jtest as part of a team-wide AEP solution is a critical step in improving software quality and streamlining a team’s software development process.
