Enhance API Design and Documentation with New OpenAPI Specification 3.0 Support in SwaggerHub

SmartBear Introduces Support for OpenAPI Specification 3.0 in SwaggerHub for Teams to Design and Document New APIs as well as Convert Existing APIs to the Latest OpenAPI Specification

SOMERVILLE, Mass. – Sept. 21, 2017 – SmartBear Software, the leader in software quality tools for teams, today announced that SwaggerHub, the integrated API design and documentation platform for teams, launches initial support for OpenAPI Specification (OAS) 3.0. This update allows teams to leverage the latest OAS 3.0 in their design and documentation workflow for new APIs and seamlessly convert existing APIs to OAS 3.0.

The OpenAPI Specification (OAS) has emerged as the world’s standard for describing RESTful APIs. The OAS defines the interface for RESTful APIs, describing them in a format that is easily discoverable and understandable by both machines and humans. The OAS was originally called the Swagger Specification, and was donated by SmartBear Software to the Linux Foundation to standardize the way REST APIs are described in an open and transparent manner, under the governance of the Open API Initiative (OAI). The newest version of the OAS, 3.0, adds rich, expressive capabilities to describe APIs, and was released in July 2017.

Individual practitioners like developers, architects and technical writers, as well as organizations of all sizes, are actively looking for tools and platforms to leverage the power of OAS 3.0. SwaggerHub is one of the first API platforms in the market to offer support for the OAS 3.0 to facilitate the easy transition into designing and documenting quality APIs using the latest OAS. Users can now describe their APIs using OAS 3.0 in an intuitive editor that is equipped with intelligent syntax auto completion and error feedback. SwaggerHub also auto generates and hosts the visual API documentation from the OAS 3.0 definition, allowing teams to focus on the API’s implementation and adoption, and not the infrastructural complexities for discovery.

Apart from designing and documenting new APIs with OAS 3.0, users can also migrate their APIs from Swagger 2.0 to OAS 3.0 using SwaggerHub’s OAS converter. This allows teams to instantly move to OAS 3.0 without having to decipher and convert every single line of their definition manually or plumbing through external plugins.

SmartBear has always empowered users, and today we are proud to announce OAS 3.0 support in SwaggerHub, said Christian Wright, EVP and GM, API Business at SmartBear.

With SwaggerHub’s support for OAS 3.0, teams can use the rich, expressive capabilities of the latest OAS to design and document APIs, and can also instantly migrate from Swagger 2.0 to OAS 3.0 with our in-built OAS converter. This, along with an array of other powerful API development features, enables teams to deliver world-class APIs that are quick to build and easy to consume.

New Test Data Converter Links DATPROF to Tosca

Connecting correct test data with various scenarios is no longer a challenge for Tosca TDM. Valori automated this ‘chain’ at the hackathon using the standard datprof2tosca converter. The result: fast and secure production-style anonymised subsets. This new service is now available through Valori.

“One of Valori’s specialities is Tosca, a powerful product with which to implement the processing side of testing automation,” says Valori’s Mark Schut. “However, unfortunately up to now creating your own test data in Tosca was complex and time-consuming. At a recent hackathon at Valori in Nieuwegein, a team of four testing experts and DATPROF thus tackled a particular challenge together: thinking up a way to greatly simplify the generation of test data with DATPROF in Tosca, using existing (anonymised) production data.”

Synergy Between Two Tools
“Earlier this year Valori entered into a unique collaboration with DATPROF, leader in specialised and user-friendly TDM solutions,” adds Bert Nienhuis at DATPROF. “Using DATPROF Subset enables the generation of consistent subsets, which gave us an idea. Shouldn’t it be possible to realise a synergy between the existing tools DATPROF and Tosca? We started brainstorming and soon found a remarkable solution.”

Completely Functional During Hackathon
During the course of a hackathon organised in late May at the Valori offices in Nieuwegein, Mark and Bert – together with Valorians Joost Jongman and Steven Dijkman – implemented an entire chain, first subsetting and anonymising data from a (fictional) production system and then loading it into Tosca using the converter. “This converter allows DATPROF to fill Tosca’s TDM with anonymised subsets in a fully automated fashion, while ensuring the data security as well,” Joost states. “Test data is easy to manage and production-like test data is used, recognised by the chain.”

New Proposition Great Addition
“The hackathon was a great opportunity to try out our concept in practice. It’s fantastic that we managed to get this done together as well. This new proposition is a great addition to our current services,” concludes Steven Dijkman.

Code Review is the Best Way to Improve Software Quality According to Global Survey

“State of Code Review 2017” Survey by SmartBear Shows How Organizations Are Developing and Maintaining the Quality of Software

SOMERVILLE, Mass. – May 18, 2017 – SmartBear Software, the leader in software quality tools for teams, released the results of its latest industry survey in the report, “The State of Code Review 2017: Trends & Insights into Dev Collaboration.” The survey was designed to establish benchmarks for the software industry concerning the ways in which organizations are developing and maintaining the quality of software today.

The percentage of respondents citing code review as the best way to improve software quality nearly doubled between 2016 and 2017, with code review continuing to be the No. 1 way to improve quality. Nearly three-quarters of respondents are doing code review using a combination of methods, including ad-hoc processes, meetings and tool-based reviews.

“With software code driving competitive advantage in numerous products and processes across industries, organizations of all types and sizes view software quality as a top priority,” said Ryan Lloyd, Vice President of Products, Test and Development at SmartBear. “While code review continues to be the No.1 way to improve software quality, there are significant challenges to implementing this best practice such as heavy workloads, time constraints and lack of manpower. Selecting the right tools can make all the difference in code review and meeting whatever an organization’s key business drivers are – improving code quality, product safety and regulatory compliance.”

Only six out of every 10 individuals surveyed say that their organizations are using a tool to help with code review. In addition, the survey has uncovered that the use of a code review tool enables daily code review 30 percent more frequently when compared with other review methods.

SmartBear conducted the global online survey for four weeks during December 2016 and January 2017. The findings are based on aggregated responses from more than 550 software developers, testers, IT/operations professionals and business leaders from more than 30 industries. The report covers perceptions surrounding code quality, approaches to code review, code review tools and decision making as well as software development tools methodology.

S’pore-based QAssure launches crowd-testing software service

AS more services go into the cloud and use open-source software and services, Singapore-based QAssure Technologies (QAssure) is offering enterprises a cloud-based and crowd-sourced platform which offers crucial testing of software code that is done much faster and at a lower cost.

Durairaj Dhanasekaran, group CEO of QAssure, told The Business Times that the company’s QA TestBox platform helps firms test applications and software through a community of expert testers with “extensive training, domain knowledge as well as experience in legacy and current platforms, automation suites and tools”.

He noted that this mode of testing results in “high quality and accurate testing results”. With an “extensive pool of testers from different parts of the globe and across different time zones”, the duration of the entire testing process can be significantly reduced, Mr Dhanasekaran noted, adding this “allows results to be delivered as quickly as the next day”.
“QA TestBox’s unique feature is that it offers an extremely safe and secure testing environment.”

According to analysts, crowd-sourcing is emerging as the new online distributed problem-solving and production model for enterprises to access a scalable workforce.

Research agency Gartner noted that the potential benefits of crowd-testing include getting speedy access to skilled resources of chosen demographics that would test in any chosen location, with their own devices and at attractive rates.

Headquartered in Singapore, QAssure, set up in 2005, has a presence in Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, India and the United States.

Mr Dhanasekaran said the company focuses on the entire spectrum of specialised testing services like functional automation, performance, digital and security testing for banking, insurance, telecom, education and public services domains. The services most frequently employed by its clients are performance, functional, test automation and security testing for newly developed software and services.

“Using QA TestBox, businesses can also reduce staffing costs as there is a lesser need to hire an in-house testing team. Businesses can then reallocate the fixed cost savings to the development of applications or software, resulting in an even higher return on investment,” Mr Dhanasekaran explained.

According to Gartner, the key risks associated with crowd-testing include security and intellectual property ownership considerations as well as the governance involved in managing the crowd.

On this point Mr Dhanasekaran said companies such as financial service institutions require a high level of security and have complex testing needs. “To address this need, QA TestBox uses a fully secured cloud-based sandbox – a virtual space to test software or code securely – for designated crowd-testers.”

According to him, QAssure ensures the security of the platform by thoroughly vetting domain-specific testers. “They are evaluated and certified through our stringent tests and background checks. Testers’ access is also discontinued once each testing process is completed.”

The QA TestBox platform operates on a fully secured cloud-based Citrix sandbox environment supported by Microsoft Azure. “This allows close monitoring of all our remote testers and ensures the data is entirely secured. Testers are also unable to extract any information from the platform, maintaining data security.”

Mr Dhanasekaran observed that, depending on their testing requirements, customers can choose between two models – self and managed services.

“Ideally suited for customers who have clarity on what they are looking for, the self-service model allows for a well-defined testing duration with a set number of testers at a fixed cost. Available in monthly, bimonthly and quarterly packages, the self-service packages are cost-effective and ensure products are market-ready on time.”

He added that the managed service model provided a “transformational approach with the appropriate test organisation and processes”.

“Offering fully customised services through a virtual cloud-based set-up, customers can achieve high-quality test assurance without incurring large overhead costs, and without losing overall control. Experienced project and delivery managers will ensure that testing solutions are tailored to the customer’s requirements to meet business goals and objectives,” he explained.

According to Mr Dhanasekaran, in the month or so that QA TestBox has been launched, the company has received “great interest from clients” in exploring the use of the different testing services offered.

“In particular, we have seen keen interest for functional, performance and security testing services for applications and software. As for industries, there has been notable traction from the fintech space – mostly for functional and security testing.

“With the rise of the gig economy, there has been significant growth in non-traditional services including crowd-testing. According to Gartner, 20 per cent of all enterprise application development will be conducted through crowd-sourcing by 2018,” he said.
The gig economy refers to a labour market characterised by the prevalence of short-term contracts or freelance work as opposed to permanent jobs.
