CITT – Cross Independent Testing Tool

The automation testing is a challenge, not always easy to overcome, that consists on a simple and easy way to generate test scripts without sacrificing future maintenance thereof.

Since WinTrust is a company permanently focused of the market needs, it has developed an add-on tool in its R&D centre which enables overcoming that limitation, through the so-called “keyword-driven” technique.

Under the CITT (Cross Independent Testing Tool) designation, this add-on relies on market tools for the execution of automated functional testing thus obviating the need for the tester (responsible for the automation) to be a proficient developer and allowing him/her to focus entirely on business and test case design techniques.

This presents several advantages:

  • It complements the existing market solutions – the client may continue to use their favourite tool while taking advantage of this add-on
  • The test steps feature intuitive commands (actions), in line with the actions performed on a manual test.
  • Since the test steps correspond to database records, the maintenance effort is highly reduced as it turns out that data is easier to maintain than code.
  • A unique script interprets and bridges the commands with the tool already used for the automated functional testing
  • Facilitates the re-use of test cases
  • Provided in a SaaS Model (Software as a Service)

SOA-TA – SOA Test Accelerator

For complex IT environments with architectures founded on a service platform, it’s not always easy to generate Web Services data calls or otherwise build the calling sequence in such a way as to emulate a complete business process.

As a result of its permanent focus on the market needs, WinTrust has developed a utility in its R&D centre which enables to accelerate this process using:

  • Generation of test cases by combining business requirements
  • Creation of input data to feed the test cases
  • Automatic generation of Web Services calls, using that data

Like other WinTrust add-ons, rather than a replacement product, this is a complementary product to the existing market tools.  This innovative solution lined-up by WinTrust represents peace of mind for the clients in knowing that WinTrust can find and optimize solutions customized to their needs.
