JDJ Awards Editor's Choice Award to Parasoft for Jtest

7/22/2004 - Parasoft, a leading provider of Automated Error Prevention (AEP) software solutions, won the JDJ Editor’s Choice Award for Jtest, the only Java unit testing and coding standards analysis product that automatically generates and runs JUnit tests and provides full support for team-wide Java error prevention.

"This code coverage and testing tool has saved my programming life many times over," said Jason Bell, Contributing Editor for JDJ. "Autogenerating JUnit tests create a much more robust solution than any I could possibly put together."

The JDJ Editor’s Choice Award panel nominated award winners to recognize products that they felt had made a major impact on their own development and on the Java community as a whole. Panelists are all active coders who personally experience the challenges of coding in their own day jobs.

"The Jtest team has been working hard to satisfy Java developers' requests to automate JUnit test case generation, functional unit testing, coding standard verification, and coding standard correction in a team environment," said Dr.Adam Kolawa, Parasoft Chairman/CEO. "Having an industry leader such as JDJ recognize Jtest as a lifesaving tool confirms that Jtest's latest innovations are continuing to fulfill the needs of the Java community."

About Jtest
Jtest, an Automated Error Prevention product that automates Java unit testing and coding standard compliance, is the world’s first product to make team-wide Java unit testing and coding standard compliance practical. Using patented technologies, it has automated intelligent Java unit test case generation since 1997, integrated automated unit testing and coding standard analysis into a single solution since 1999, automated intelligent JUnit test case generation since 2001, and supported team-wide automated unit testing and coding standard compliance since 2003. Over the past 6 years, it has been recognized with numerous awards— including the prestigious Jolt Product Excellence Award— and adopted by thousands of development teams worldwide.

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 400 coding standard rules (plus any number of custom rules) and automatically corrects most rule violations. With the click of a 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.

Parasoft Jtest 5.1 is available for Windows 2000 and XP, Linux, and Solaris.
