Testplant AI-Powered Predictive Suite Transforms Testing to Speed Delivery of Bug-Free Apps

Unveils Eggplant AI 2.0, delivering intelligent test automation with enhanced bug-hunting capabilities, improving the user experience

Boulder, CO & London, UK — February 13th, 2018 — Testplant, the global leader in digital automation intelligence, today announced the availability of the latest version of its pioneering Eggplant AI product. Eggplant AI 2.0 uses AI, machine learning, and analytics to intelligently navigate applications, predict where quality issues are most likely to occur, and correlate data to help product teams quickly identify and resolve issues.

Comprehensively testing an app is an impossibly large task. There are an infinite number of ways a user can navigate through any application, which is why test teams cover less than one percent of the possible user journeys in their testing, and why all apps have defects. Until now, test teams had to estimate where issues were most likely to be and then manually create automated test scripts to test those user journeys.

Eggplant AI 2.0 solves this problem with enhanced bug-hunting capabilities: machine learning algorithms that identify the patterns of where defects are most likely to occur in the application or software, and then auto-generate the tests for these user journeys. This significantly increases the effectiveness and efficiency of testing, delivering real improvements to the app that users notice.

Test teams also have specific ‘smoke test’ user journeys that they always need to test, regardless of how likely they are to find defects. Eggplant AI 2.0 enables testers to quickly and easily define these ‘directed’ tests that must be executed, as well as combine both manually defined regression tests and advanced, intelligent, AI-based tests.

Eggplant AI 2.0 is part of the Digital Automation Intelligence Suite that includes Eggplant Manager to orchestrate test execution, Eggplant Automation Cloud to manage hosted test devices, and Eggplant Integrations to integrate with the rest of your CI/DevOps infrastructure.

“In a digital world, rapid time to market and delighting customers are the keys to success. Only companies that embrace intelligent test automation for software and apps will be able to keep pace with customer demands. Eggplant AI 2.0 is a huge leap forward in the evolution of test automation. It uses AI and neural networks in a meaningful way to auto-generate tests and focus test execution on the user journeys most likely to find defects and help improve the user experience. This is the future of testing and is the only way software and app vendors are going to keep up with the demands of users and the pace of DevOps.”  Antony Edwards, CTO, Testplant

Parasoft Supercharges Static Analysis in New SWAMP-in-a-Box Configuration

With Parasoft support, SWAMP-in-a-Box now provides expanded access to preconfigured static analysis rulesets including CWE Top 25, CERT, MISRA, and UL-2900

February 7, 2018

Monrovia, CA – Parasoft, the leader in automated software testing, has partnered with the Software Assurance Marketplace (SWAMP) to support a new SWAMP-in-a-Box (SiB) configuration. The customizable SWAMP-in-a-Box software gives SWAMP users secure, local access to Parasoft’s mature static analysis security solution inside their own network. Previously, SWAMP users had to share their code within the SWAMP open facility for analysis, incompatible for many organizations’ security policies. With this new configuration, the power of SWAMP can be unleashed into secure and private networks. To request a license or learn more about this partnership, please email Parasoft’s dedicated support line: swamp@parasoft.com.

“This is an important next step in our partnership with Parasoft to advance the adoption of Continuous Assurance,” says Miron Livny, SWAMP Director and Chief Technology Officer for the Morgridge Institute for Research. “Organizations that deploy their customized instances of SWAMP-in-a-Box will benefit from easy and managed access to the evolving capabilities offered by Parasoft’s software testing solutions.”

Parasoft’s software testing solutions, including those specifically focused on security, help developers quickly scan, test, and analyze their code for potential vulnerabilities, identifying and correcting defects before they are propagated through the development cycle or worse, released to the market. Parasoft’s mature static analysis solution, preconfigured to test for the CWE Top 25, as well as key industry standards such as CERT, CWE/SANS, FDA, MISRA, OWASP, PCI DSS, and UL-2900, pinpoints important security weaknesses. With support for SWAMP-in-a-Box, users have an easy introduction to static code analysis for security as well as a great entry point to Parasoft’s broader automated software testing tool suite, which includes desktop integrations, CI support, and advanced reporting and analytics.

Parasoft capabilities now available in SiB include:
  • Static analysis with CWE Top 25
  • Power to upgrade to over 2200 coding standard rules
  • A scalable solution to full enterprise deployment with dashboards
  • Special Upgrade Incentives for automated unit testing and code coverage

“We’re very excited to be supporting SWAMP-in-a-Box. Parasoft was the first commercial static analysis tool available in the SWAMP, and it’s great to see the SiB feature give greater access to SWAMP capabilities by allowing users to keep analysis and code on premises,” said Arthur Hicken, Evangelist at Parasoft. “With our static analysis engine available in SiB, users get an edge over using the free tools, and it’s a great, simple way to get started on a full enterprise security solution.”

In conjunction with the SiB release, Parasoft is offering a special pricing incentive to SWAMP users. To learn more about Parasoft and SiB, join the upcoming webinar on March 8, 2018 at 1pm ET and/or email Parasoft at swamp@parasoft.com.


The Software Assurance Marketplace is a joint effort of four research institutions – The Morgridge Institute for Research, Indiana University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison – to advance the capabilities and to increase the adoption of software assurance technologies through open continuous assurance technologies and a shared facility. The SWAMP project is funded by the Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate. Services include access to high throughput computing capacity, 30 software assurance tools, and a library of more than 280 open-source code samples with known vulnerabilities to help developers improve the quality of their static and dynamic testing tools.

These new features make it easier and more effective to interact with Dynatrace APM deployed in the testing environment while load testing an application with NeoLoad. With that setup, testers can precisely analyze how the whole application and its ecosystem are behaving.

API Enhancements – Users of NeoLoad Web are now able to modify the success status of a test through the API, enabling a tester to completely define and customize success or failure criteria for tests. Testers can programmatically (using the REST API) define what success/failure means, based on data from test results which they can access using the same REST API. The NeoLoad RUNTIME API has also been enhanced to allow testers to automatically and programmatically launch several tests using the same Cloud session.

Password Encryption in Test Scenarios – NeoLoad 6.3 includes enhanced security for test credentials to protect against improper use of system credentials.

Microsoft Monitoring Enhancements – Monitoring a Windows machine or a Microsoft Server (SQL Server, IIS, .Net) is now easier with NeoLoad 6.3’s new authentication capabilities for Microsoft environments. 

About Neotys:
Neotys is a leading innovator in load testing & performance testing for Web and Mobile applications. It has 12 years of development investment into NeoLoad – the performance testing platform designed to accelerate Agile and DevOps processes.
