Agitar Delivers Comprehensive Java Unit Testing Solution - Achieves Ready for IBM Rational Software Validation Program

AgitarOne Integration Improves Code Quality and Increases Development Agility For IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform 7.0, Desktop Products, Customers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., December 5, 2006 – Agitar Software, a leader in enterprise unit testing, today announced the integration of its new flagship product – AgitarOne, which brings unprecedented power and simplicity to Java unit testing – with the IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform 7.0, desktop products.

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. With AgitarOne tightly integrated with the IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform 7.0, desktop products, Java developers can get started quickly and easily with unit testing.

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. The integration of AgitarOne and the IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform 7.0, desktop products, complements IBM’s current offerings for testing with a comprehensive unit testing solution that increases developer productivity, improves code quality, and helps companies be more agile. The validation of AgitarOne to the Ready for IBM Rational software validation program offers IBM customers assurance that the product meets IBM’s requirements for interoperability and user experience.

Jerry Rudisin, CEO and President, 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. These activities can only be done on a full, integrated application. Agitar’s support for exhaustive Java unit testing makes it easier for QA teams to do their work, since they can integrate and system test software modules that have been tested to really work. Agitar has supported Eclipse since November 2004, and have seen many of our enterprise customers rely on IBM’s Eclipse-based RSD family of products. It’s a natural and easy step for us to extend support to the IBM Rational Software Delivery Platform 7.0."
