Agitar Helps Customers Deliver Better Software Faster Through Integration with IBM Rational Build Forge Software

AgitarOne Receives Ready for IBM Rational Software Validation for Integration

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 11, 2007 – Agitar Software, a leader in enterprise unit testing, announced the integration of its flagship product – AgitarOne, which brings power and simplicity to Java unit testing – with IBM Rational Build Forge software, which provides reliable, high-performance builds and streamlines software delivery throughout the development lifecycle.

Unit testing is the practice in which software developers create tests for their code as they write it, helping to ensure that the code works correctly and making it easier to change the code with confidence. AgitarOne brings power and simplicity to Java unit testing by automating the generation of JUnit tests, supporting interactive exploratory testing on Java code, and helping developers eliminate error-prone coding patterns. With the tight integration of AgitarOne and IBM Rational solutions for software development and application lifecycle management, IBM customers can get started quickly and easily with unit testing, and deliver better software faster – by improving product quality, increasing developer productivity, and accelerating development cycles.

Available since December 2006, the integration of AgitarOne and IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform helps developers test their code as they write it, and ensure that the code works correctly – enhancing developer productivity by minimizing scrap and rework, and improving product quality. Available in June 2007, the combination of AgitarOne and IBM Rational Build Forge helps IBM customers speed up development cycles. With the integration of AgitarOne, development teams using IBM Rational Build Forge can not only achieve reliable builds, but also automate the creation of regression tests, and run them routinely as part of every build – providing instant and actionable feedback on the quality of the build, and accelerating the development cycle by helping development teams detect and correct problems as they occur.

Jerry Rudisin, CEO and President of Agitar, said, "IBM Rational offers the most comprehensive and compelling suite of software development tools, spanning the entire development lifecycle. This includes powerful tools that automate many of the traditional quality assurance activities such as GUI testing, functional testing, and load and stress testing. Our support for the IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform complements IBM’s testing solutions with a powerful solution for developer testing, making it easier for quality assurance teams to do their work, since they can integrate and system test software modules that have been tested to really work. The integration of AgitarOne with IBM Rational Build Forge is a natural extension of this value proposition, helping software organizations get immediate feedback on their builds, and find and fix problems early as possible in the development cycle."
