It aims to improve Java code reliability, functionality, security, performance, and maintainability. ! 2.03, an enhanced version of the world's first automatic "white box" module testing tool for Java. With jtest! 2.03, Java developers are able to quickly and easily accomplish what they have been unable to achieve using other Java testing tools--find the bugs that lead to uncaught runtime exceptions.
jtest! 2.03 uses patented Test Generation Technology to automatically analyze Java source code and generate and execute appropriate test cases for exposing uncaught runtime exceptions that otherwise would get shipped to the end-user. Most Java testing tools available today require developers to create their own test cases, which is useful for feature (black-box) testing, but impractical im·prac·ti·cal
