Agitar Software Releases Agitator 3.0, Advancing Enterprise Developer Testing for Java

Agitator 3.0 provides enhanced support for frameworks such as J2EE and Struts, and APIs to enable support for more application environments

Mountain View, CA, Oct. 17, 2005 — Agitar Software, the leader in enterprise developer testing, today announced the general availability of Agitator 3.0 and Agitator Management Dashboard 3.0. The releases include new Domain Expert technology, a breakthrough that makes it possible for developers to generate highly accurate unit tests in mission-critical application environments such as J2EE and Struts.

Developer testing, the practice where software developers validate software quality at the time they write the code, speeds development, improves software design, and delivers order-of-magnitude reductions in software defects. Agitar provides the world’s leading software for developer testing and has garnered best technology awards from InfoWorld, Java One, SD Times and Software Development magazine.

Agitator 3.0 enables developers to codify knowledge about an application’s context when creating unit tests. Contexts can be coding standards, business rules, and/or application frameworks. This breakthrough approach provides higher accuracy and relevance of the created unit tests, reduction in complexity and workload for developers, and significant improve¬ments in software quality. Agitator 3.0 is pre-packaged with Domain Experts for coding standards, J2EE, Struts, and Log4J.

"Fujitsu FIP provides software development services to Fujitsu worldwide, as well as to other large customers. Agitar’s solutions help us deliver superior products to our customers and be very responsive to their requests," said Kawahata Kazutoshi, director of the software components division of Fujitsu FIP. "Much of our work involves the Struts Framework, so we are excited to see Agitar advance the state of the art in this field."

Agitator also includes a public Domain Expert API, enabling customers and partners to create experts for their own Java environments. Japan’s largest J2EE integrator, EC-One (JASDAQ: 2310), has created an Agitator Domain Expert for its c-Bank application framework.

"Domain Experts are a uniquely powerful way to capture the context of the environment in which unit testing takes place. Our cFramework Domain Expert makes it much easier to unit test new enterprise applications developed against cFramework, with higher levels of code coverage and stronger tests," said Eihiro Saishu, president and CEO of EC-One. "Agitar’s API allowed us to quickly create our cFramework Expert. This makes it easy to bring the value of unit testing to our key c-Bank customers as part of their development process."
