Latest Testing Tools 2019 - Trend of a time


The latest testing tools in 2019 might not be the most outstanding ones but absolutely the most updated ones. A good testing tool requires unceasing flexibility to adapt to the ever-changing problems arising, therefore, innovation to testing tool manufacturers is of a must

What are the new aspects of testing solutions? What are the most up-to-date tools? Let’s take a look

The Very First Thought

You can find the academic definition of testing tools anywhere on Google, but few of them give you a short, simple look into it. Think about them as your sidekick, like Pumba to Timon, or Dr.Watson to Sherlock Holmes. The sidekick will not only supportively accompany you along the challenging journey but also does everything you need in their power so that you can reach further milestones - the same concept applies to test tools

So, in short, testing tools are what assist you from soup to nuts in testing activities to optimize your software developing effort. With the support of testing tools, especially the latest ones, the testing process becomes totally automatic and optimal, which buys you some time to focus on other crucial matters

Old Names - New Faces

These days there are not so many brand new testing tools, however, the old guys in the testing tools field are rising above with new changes and innovation to adapt to the higher demand from users. The latest version of some familiar names can be so fresh that we can hardly recognize, thus, make them not only out of sheer the newest version but figuratively the newest faces running on the trend of this generation

qTest 9 

qTest by QASymphony is one of the outstanding guys in Agile and DevOps company .Among all qTest’s versions, qTest 9 is the newest release with 2 new features: qTest Launch and qTest Scenario 

qTest Launch is designed for test automation management. It provides users with updates on the basic characteristics like centralized test automation, integration across frameworks and tools and enhanced visibility

On the other hand, qTest Scenario “helps everyone to be on the same page with BDD (behavior-driven development), as put by QASymphony’s spokesman. It owns the ability to facilitate BDD test scenario creation through Jira software add-on, which offers users an ideal way to start with automated testing

Some key features of it, according to QAsymphony’s blog, would be:
Jira integration: Testers, developers and product owners can create, update, edit and link feature files using the Jira interface to any issue type
Simplified script and scenario creation: qTest Scenario’s autocompletion allows BDD teams to well-reuse previously implemented Cucumber steps or outlines to streamline feature and scenario creation
Source code traceability: qTest Scenario stores all feature files directly in private Git repositories like GitHub and Bitbucket to standardize feature files and scenario steps as code

Ranorex 9.0

Ranorex is an all-in-one tool for cross-platform test automation. It not only well fits the beginners because of its codeless click-and-go interface but also powers automation experts by its full IDE

Ranorex 9.0 is the latest version released by Ranorex studio. It contains a mysterious yet stunning dark-theme, effective and optimal new features and some performance-boosting tricks

The first new feature of the 9.0 version to be listed is the improvements in performance and usability. Ranorex adds a new dark theme as a complement to the light theme earlier, so that users now have more options to choose.  It also has a new 64-bit version for easier automatic and debugging, a video recording of test execution to keep track of what happened and a new file/project wizard for a faster, easier workflow

Ranorex studio also thinks about enhancements in remote testing, shown by its custom tags for remote agents, smarter mouse handling and remote test distribution. Other worth-noting traits would be a new machine-trained algorithm for automatic identification of web elements and Significantly faster test execution performance for web application testing, for all web browsers
