RIS Test Ranger
RIS Test Ranger
RIS Test Ranger is a tool designed for testing services provided by IT systems. Our software is the result of many years’ experience gained while testing IT projects and implementing solutions in ESB-class systems.
The tool consists of two parts:
- A framework for building and running unit tests
- A reporting module for presenting test results and trend observations
Lowering the Cost of Testing
RIS Test Ranger significantly reduces the cost of tests that often represent a substantial part of the budget available for the project. RIS Test Ranger provides an easy way to gain control over the development of the project by verifying the impact of new and modified elements on the rest of the system. With Test Ranger errors can be detected at the early stages of the project.
Various Communication Protocols
RIS TR supports many communication protocols such as SOAP, JMS, FTP, webMethods native API, DB, INVOKE, HTTP, and many others. With its flexible architecture, the tool can be easily supplemented with other communication protocols.
Testing without Coding
Test Ranger allows you to create tests using xml files. The user does not need to know any programming language. Test configuration consists of three files containing, respectively:
- Information on test configuration
- details on the service to call
- call mode
- list of operations to be performed before or after the service is executed
- Input document of the called service
- Output document – expected to be a consequence of a service call
JUnit – Integration Features
RIS TR is also compatible with the most popular testing standard – JUnit. This enables integration with a wide range of tools available on the market, e.g. integration with JMeter tool for performance tests.
Execution of tests is the first step followed by the presentation of results. Test Ranger generates a report containing detailed information on every performed test, starting with the status and ending with call logs, exchanged messages and information about errors.
Test Ranger GUI is a great way to observe the results achieved throughout the test. Data can be viewed both as graphs or as a table.
Various Testing Modes
RIS Test Ranger supports both sequential and parallel tests. Parallelization significantly reduces the time required to perform a large number of test iterations. The tool allows the tests to be grouped through scenario building.
Planning and Notifications
Tests can be run based on previously prepared schedule. After each iteration, the user gets a mail report detailing the results for the tests that were performed. With this approach it is possible to reduce the amount of human resources needed in the testing process. Iterations can be performed at night and in the morning the user is notified about the results.
Environment Status Control
The results of all iterations performed by the tool are collected into a database, allowing access to archived data at any time. It is also possible view statistics of performed tests from different time and theme perspectives.
Charts generated by RIS Test Ranger allow the user to immediately track down the point at which the test stopped working. In the vast majority of cases it is sufficient to identify the causes of errors.
