SmartBear Software today announced that its automated testing tool, TestComplete has won top honors, and performance profiling tool, AQtime, is a runner-up in the 2nd Annual 2010 Automated Testing Institute (ATI) Honors.

According to the Automated Testing Institute, the ATI Automation Honors are the industry’s original set of awards dedicated to software test automation. It crowns the leading tools, resources and practitioners with automation’s top honor. The ATI Automation Honors awards rely on industry practitioners to identify which tools, resources and people are the best, which have the most significant upgrades and/or which are setting the trends that will help to take software test automation to the next level in the coming year.

Winner: Best Overall Commercial Functional Automated Test Tool

TestComplete was selected by the automation community as the winner in the Best Overall Commercial Functional Automated Test Tool category. It was also the winner in the Commercial Functional Automated Test Tool for Java.

TestComplete is an automated testing tool that lets you create, manage and run tests for Windows, Web, or Rich Client applications. TestComplete is widely popular due to its enterprise-class feature set and affordable price. Novice testers are keen on the script-free testing via keyword tests, the test visualizer, and multiple wizards for data-driven tests. TestComplete appeals equally to power users, offering broad application type support, several scripting languages, and an SDK for extensions.

Runner-Up: Best Overall Commercial Performance Automated Test Tool

AQtime Pro was selected as a runner-up in both the Best Overall Commercial Performance Automated Test Tool and Commercial Performance Automated Test Tool for the Web/HTTP(S) categories.

AQtime Pro is a performance profiling, memory and resource debugging toolset for 32- and 64-bit Windows, .NET and Java applications as well as VBScript and JScript code. AQtime 7.0 Pro added support for several additional development platforms and environments, including Microsoft .NET Framework 4.

Dion Johnson, Automated Testing Institute Advisor, said, “The producers of TestComplete and AQtime have always seemed to pride themselves on producing affordable, comprehensive and powerful solutions for test automation and performance profiling. Based on the victories these tools experienced in this year’s ATI Automation Honors awards, it would appear that the automation community strongly agrees with this assessment. On behalf of the Automated Testing Institute, I'd like to say congratulations to SmartBear Software!”
