The automated cross-browser test tool gets a much-needed update to include more environments

The worlds of Java and browser testing are certainly merging together ever more frequently. One such tool to help ease the woes of testing across multiple environments is Rapise, which has recently had an overhaul to add in new functionalities.

The automated functional and cross-browser test tool Rapise 1.5 has a ton of new features added to its arsenal, notably the inclusion of support for applications written for Silverlight and Java SWT. There’s also enhanced support for WPF applications (Windows Presentation Framework using the new UIAutomation library) and for testing .NET 4.0 applications. A new spy chooser allows for greater inspection of MSAA, UIAutomation, Managed (.NET) and Java applications too.

In terms of bonuses, a regular expression option has been added to Rapise IDE’s FindReplace function and cross-browser support for Embedded Java web applications in IE, Chrome and Firefox. It’s possible to record or create one test script in JavaScript (slight problem for some granted) and execute that across the board across the major browsers.

Rapise certainly has all corners covered when it comes to support, now backing the following: Java, Google Web Toolkit, Yahoo User Interface, Web applications including AJAX, Windows Forms including Infragistics, DevExpress, Telerik, Adobe Flash/Flex including AIR, Microsoft .NET, Silverlight, Win32 applications and WPF. With all these options, a rigourous testing phase (all in the same place) can begin, and it might just give it the edge against competitors by offering so much. Check it out here.
