Telerik, a leading vendor of developer tools and UI components for .NET, has partnered with ArtOfTest
, the expert in software quality assurance technologies, to add a new web testing product to its portfolio—Telerik WebUI Test Studio
. This move reinforces Telerik’s position of an industry leader and makes its portfolio the most extensive .NET toolbox on the market.
The new Telerik WebUI Test Studio is an automated testing solution, powered by the innovative ArtOfTest Automation Design Canvas™
and WebAii™Automation Framework
. The product is specifically tailored for Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX
, thanks to the integrated control translators. Advanced, yet user-friendly, WebUI Test Studio helps developers and QAs easily deal with complex automated testing scenarios. Although it offers tight integration with the Telerik web controls, the new tool is indispensable when it comes to testing rich, AJAX-based web applications.
“With WebUI Test Studio, we are happy to present a new era in automated web testing,” said Svetozar Georgiev, Telerik Co-CEO. “Historically, testing tools have been complex and expensive, and as a result—out of reach for most small and medium-sized companies. We believe WebUI Test Studio will bring automated testing to the masses, finally making superior and cost-effective testing possible, finally facilitating team collaboration between developers and QAs. We have also provided another benefit for all Telerik customers—special wrappers for the Telerik AJAX controls, which expose control-specific test actions.”
Telerik WebUI Test Studio is not a generic testing tool, but rather designed for automated testing of modern web applications, especially AJAX-based. It features an Automated Overlay Surface™, a unique visual storyboard, and an array of other advanced features for web solutions. Thanks to the tool’s unique browser abstraction, recorded tests can be run against all supported browsers (Internet Explorer and Firefox, with Safari and Google Chrome support coming soon). WebUI Test Studio is fully integrated in both Team Suite and Professional editions of Microsoft Visual Studio. Support for Silverlight applications will be added in the next releases.
“We are very excited about partnering with Telerik and offering a specialized version of Automation Design Canvas™ to their customers,” said Christopher Eyhorn, ArtOfTest CEO. “This partnership and its offerings is a first of its kind between a UI component vendor and a testing tools company. We believe it is time to bring a new generation of cutting-edge technologies and innovative processes to software testing that will assist software quality professionals in building better software easier.”
