WALTHAM, Mass. -- Empirix Inc., the leading provider of integrated testing and monitoring solutions for Web, voice and network applications, today launched the latest version of its award-winning Web application testing solution, e-TEST(TM) suite 7.0. Building on a long history of leadership in testing Web applications, Web Services and J2EE applications, e-TEST suite 7.0 is the first complete native .NET Web application testing solution, incorporating features designed to help companies deploy better .NET applications in less time.

.NET applications leverage new technologies and pose new challenges that generic application testing tools cannot handle - such as XML Web Services, ASP.NET applications and Web-deployed Windows Forms. e-TEST suite 7.0 allows QA organizations to adapt to these new technologies quickly and efficiently, through wizard-driven, easy-to-use support for all major features of the .NET Web application stack. Combined with the power, efficiency and ease of use provided by e-TEST suite's Visual Scripting environment, these new features make e-TEST suite 7.0 the best choice for ensuring the quality of .NET applications.

This new release was driven by market demand for better .NET testing solutions. DataQuick®, one of the nation's leading providers of real property information, has adopted the e-TEST suite from Empirix to test all of its .NET applications. "Once we learned that Empirix had an automated testing solution designed specifically for .NET, we decided to try it and have been extremely happy with the results," said Glen Pascual, Software Tester for DataQuick. "We've found e-TEST suite to be both user-friendly and very flexible. It has enabled us to find and address issues that we would have never found using our old method of testing," he said. "With e-TEST, scripting is a breeze. Now it's easier than ever to test more thoroughly and more frequently."

According to Gartner Inc., the .NET application management arena should grow considerably during the next several years. Theresa Lanowitz, Research Director at Gartner, noted that because .NET applications differ from regular Web applications - offering richer user interfaces, for instance - companies should seek out specialized quality assurance tools and implement best practices for managing the .NET application life cycle. "We see growing .NET adoption on the corporate side, and we also see .NET being used for more critical, customer-facing applications," noted Lanowitz. "These new uses are driving the need for better application management solutions."
