BlazeMeter Introduces Updated Version of Its Back end Automated Testing Framework
|Stuart Parkerson in Enterprise Thursday, November 13, 2014|
BlazeMeter has released BlazeMeter version 3.0, a back-end automated testing framework that facilitates continuous testing as part of the product delivery cycle. This allows users to run an unlimited number of tests with “zero time to test”, resulting in faster release time without compromising software quality.
BlazeMeter version 3.0 delivers several new features including the ability to generate load using real browsers by utilizing Selenium web driver technology. The new feature facilitates the reuse of existing Selenium scripts or recording a new Selenium script using the open source Selenium builder and then run a load based on the recorded script.
BlazeMeter also has added multi-cloud vendors HP, Google, Joyent and Rackspace to the existing Amazon Web Services (AWS) locations. New cloud platforms will be added on an ongoing basis to provide better flexibility in selecting the load origin. Users can also run tests using the multi-cloud feature to load test their CDN.
A new API driven architecture enables complete functionality through a simple REST API, allowing developers to fully automate testing through the continuous delivery process. The new User Interface (UI) facilitates fast performance testing so that users can access version 3.0’s new features and functionalities.
With its Multi-Instance tests, BlazeMeter 3.0 expedites a developer’s ability to build a collection of tests from disparate testing tools and orchestrate them to run together on every build and release. This provides the opportunity to run an unlimited number of tests in parallel -- tests generated by various open source tools -- by reducing the efforts associated in running regression, post-build and pre-production tests.
Another new functionality in version 3.0 is the Mobile Dashboard that is available on iPhone and Android native apps. The Mobile Dashboard is also available on the Play and Apple stores. To support mobile productivity, the Mobile Dashboard enables users to constantly stay in control by launching tests, viewing reports and ending test runs while from their mobile devices.
