The new program will allow projects related to open source to utilise the popular enterprise-class test automation software of Parasoft
Parasoft, an independent software vendor specialised in automated testing, announced that it is offering a new program that will allow software developers to work on open source projects having free access to the tool suite of the company.
The new program will allow projects related to open source to utilise the popular enterprise-class test automation software of Parasoft, that ranges from deep code analysis, unit and functional testing, to load, performance and security testing.
Speaking on the development, Mark Lambert, VP – Products, Parasoft, said, “For over 30 years, Parasoft has brought continuous quality to enterprise organisations looking to ensure the delivery of high-quality software at speed. Our solutions are designed to seamlessly integrate with our clients use of open source software and, with the announcement of the Parasoft Open Source Support Program, we are excited to extend access to our tool suite to those developers contributing to the open source projects that have become business critical components of our clients’ ecosystems.”
Integrates with open source software
The company’s tool suite leverages and integrates with open source software at each level of software development process, whether it is creating JUnit test cases leveraging Mockito, integrating into a Jenkins pipeline or executing GoogleTest, Selenium, or Appium tests as part of the testing process.
It is important that these types of technologies are created matching the level of quality similar to supporting applications as most enterprise organisations use open source software as part of the process of software development.
By leveraging Parasoft’s tool suite, software developers, who are contributing to these market leading open source projects, can be able to make sure that the technologies they are creating are reliable, secure and scalable.
A software developer has to be an active contributor to a vital Open Source project, recognised within the global open source community for participating in Parasoft’s Open Source Support Program and for acquiring free user licenses for valid tools of the company.
