integrated development environment - interactive development environment (IDE). Jtest automates key unit testing (testing) unit testing - The type of testing where a developer (usually the one who wrote the code) proves that a code module (the "unit") meets its requirements. practices such as white-box, black-box, and regression testing In software development, testing a program that has been modified in order to ensure that additional bugs have not been introduced. When a program is enhanced, testing is often done only on the new features. and also enforces more than 300 industry-respected coding standards through static analysis.
Parasoft is a member of Sun Microsystems' Sun ONE Studio Extension Partner Program, a thriving community of vendors building complementary products and modules that work in conjunction with the Sun ONE Studio IDE, formerly the Forte for Java An earlier family of Java development environments from Sun. The products included an editor, compiler, debugger, object browser and JavaBean creator plus the ability to edit and view HTML files. IDE.
As software quality issues continue to plague today's businesses, the need for an effective means of reducing and preventing software errors increases. Parasoft's award winning Jtest is the first development tool of its type to automate all aspects of unit testing for Java technology applications. Jtest's unique in its ability to automatically generate test cases with the click of a button. Traditional unit testing requires developers to manually write test cases to test each Java class, a task that is often overlooked in the rush to get to market. Jtest eliminates the time consuming, tedious tasks of manually performing white box, black box, and regression testing. In addition to automatically enforcing traditional coding standards, Jtest has rules support for Enterprise JavaBeans See EJB.

Jtest now integrates with Sun ONE Studio to provide Automated Error Prevention for Java developers within their own environment.
"Businesses are quickly adopting Java technology as the foundation for many business-critical applications," said Jim Sherburne, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Parasoft. "Developers working on such applications need to be able to ensure high quality and speed time to market to meet their customers growing demands. Jtest coupled with Sun ONE Studio gives them the ability to integrate error prevention into their development cycle."
"Enabling developers to use their favorite tools within the Sun ONE environment helps developers improve overall quality without disrupting their development process," said Arthur Gould, Senior Manager, Strategic Relations, Sun Microsystems. "Jtest helps these teams alleviate the burden of manual unit testing."
