Robust test automation for everyone

For short and long term success, software testing solutions need to be dynamic, flexible and able to be deployed easily and quickly amongst the broadest possible user-base.

TestDrive is our Automated Software Quality (ASQ) solution that addresses these requirements to achieve rapid automation. It is designed to test browser and legacy applications, as well as GUIs, including Java™, Ajax, Flex® and Silverlight®It’s device emulation support even enables you to test responsive web applications designed for mobile devices.

The next generation technology incorporated into TestDrive brings practical business benefits that offer you options. For example, you might choose to conduct more comprehensive testing in the same time frame to reduce risk, or carry out the same amount of testing but finish quicker, or to use fewer costly resources, or any combination of these. The choice is yours.

The result is higher quality applications, delivered to market in a shorter period of time. In essence, the whole application development process becomes more productive.

TestDrive Benefits

Code free
TestDrive is at the vanguard of Code-Free test automation, setting the agenda since 1998. No programming skills or knowledge are required to use it, opening its applicability to the whole software delivery process. Script build is rapid and script maintenance is largely automatic, thus maximizing productivity. TestDrive is not a front-end tool to ease the creation of underlying script code, there is no code.
Decrease test time and optimises the time spent in application change
TestDrive scripts are completely modular and used for checking, environment, external data and flow, and are all contained in the playlists. Using the results from TestDrive, you can pick and choose what application changes you want to make while the tests continue to run, eliminating the need to restart testing every time a change is made.
Allows human input / readability
TestDrive scripts are completely modular and used for checking, environment, external data and flow, and are all contained in the playlists. Using the results from TestDrive, you can pick and choose what application changes you want to make while the tests continue to run, eliminating the need to restart testing every time a change is made.
Multiple technologies suitability - Single application will work across multiple technologies reducing the resource training
Single application will work across multiple technologies reducing the resource training Flexibility and ease of use are the hallmarks of TestDrive. This enables companies to minimize training and implementation time while maximizing application output. Seamless integration with all Original Software, TestDrive also communicates with other test management products like HP Quality Center.
Full content
TestDrive is configured to understand your applications automatically, getting the full content of each screen as it appears without the need to interrogate an item, click on it or write any code. This means that all the data is available to be tested, or used in processing.
Self-healing
TestDrive can handle many changes completely automatically and where user input is required, it is only to update the script with the discreet changes through an intuitive dialogue.
Modular play lists
TestDrive scripts are executed via playlists, combining several scripts or other playlists if required for a fully modular approach. The checking, external data, environment, and the flow are contained in the Playlist rather than the script so that one script can be used for multiple purposes, minimizing maintenance, and maximizing re-use. Playlists can also be called from other applications such as CI build servers to perform immediate regression testing. They can also be scheduled with the load distributed across multiple devices whether physical or virtual.
