Building on Ascert’s growing suite of automated testing tools, the company releases its Virtual Terminal Simulation Module for VersaTest Automator
As an innovator in test automation, Ascert has launched a new version of its Virtual Terminal Simulation Module (VTERM) to operate natively in its newest generation of testing products, VersaTest Automator. The VTERM product, which was originaly created within Ascert’s VersaTest Classic product, has been used successfully by customers for many years to automate the test process for green screen applications.However that version required an HP NonStop (formerly Tandem) server, in order to operate – that is no longer the case.
This latest version leverages the end-to-end testing environment provided by VersaTest Automator, enabling the coordinated testing of green screen applications alongside other headless interfaces, such as payments networks and back-end hosts. Adoption of this latest version has occurred with companies in various sectors including financial services and retail.
“Many of today's server-based applications are developed to utilize the sophisticated graphical capabilities of PC's or workstations for user input and display. But, in many instances, the ‘behind the scenes’ applications in very large companies are legacy green screen applications based on older terminal technology, such as the Tandem 6530 or IBM 3270", said Paul Springston, Ascert’s Director of Professional Services. “VTERM eliminates the manually intensive process of testing these interfaces and automates the process. Our customers who have implemented VTERM have been able to recognize significant reductions in testing time almost immediately. This latest version, operating natively within a VersaTest Automator environment, provides them with even greater orchestration capabilities for their complex testing environments."
VTERM Terminal Simulator, and add-on module to VersaTest Automator, provides yet another solution to the problem of expensive, time consuming and error-prone testing practices. It is joined by the VersaTest Jenkins Plug-in for Continuous Testing which Ascert recently released to the marketplace.
