What's New in TestComplete 8.10
Develop | Posted November 23, 2010

Join Nick Olivo today from 2:00 – 3:00 PM EST to get a first-hand review of the main new features and enhancements in our TestComplete 8.10 Webinar.

For starters, we significantly enhanced the functionality for testing Rich Internet Applications specifically the support for Microsoft Silverlight 4, Adobe AIR and Adobe Flex. This includes platform specific support for objects, methods and properties and improves the tester’s ability to fully automate the functional testing of Rich Internet Applications.

A new built-in data generator wizard helps generate pseudo-random data for your tests, using 19 built-in generators for various data types: numeric values, addresses, names, e-mails, composite strings (that include data of other generators), GUIDs and so on. The generated data can be saved in the form of Excel worksheets or TestComplete’s Table variables and then used in data-driven and load tests.

Other enhancements include new supported application types for Java 7 (both 32- and 64-bit applications), Embarcadero RAD Studio XE (Delphi and C++Builder applications), Qt ver. 4.7.0 and Sybase PowerBuilder 12 .NET. Now TestComplete supports more controls by Developer Express, Syncfusion and Microsoft.

Other cool enhancements include: The checkpoints for images and files feature new automatic options, including: sliders for specifying checkpoint parameters, automatic calculation of comparison tolerance for minor changes, and an easier way to specify a mask for comparing images. Also, we added a number of enhancements to our load testing engine, including server side monitoring, data parameterization of test traffic, and real-time graphs.

On top of these functional enhancements we also worked behind the scenes to optimize the runtime and memory performance of the Name Mapping component, and speed up the recording process with the Test Visualizer.
