SmartBear Software Advances Load Testing for Websites with Rich Internet Applications.

LoadComplete 2.0 supports Flash, Flex, AJAX, and Silverlight technologies; includes performance and reporting enhancements

BEVERLY, Mass. -- SmartBear Software today unveiled LoadComplete([TM])2.0, the latest version of the company's load testing tool for Web applications. Featuring new support for rich Internet applications (RIAs), LoadComplete 2.0 now makes it easy to create and run realistic load tests, without scripting, for websites built using Adobe([R]) Flash([R]) and Flex, AJAX, and Microsoft([R]) Silverlight([R]) technologies. New data presentation and reporting options make it easier for users to control data parameters and interpret and diagnose results to improve the performance, reliability, and user experience of Web applications.

Mathijs Groen, QA Engineer, Benelux, at Kewill B.V., said, "LoadComplete 2.0 is an economical and efficient tool for us to more easily test the performance of our rich Internet-based applications and compare performance statistics by running it on several types of application servers. This enables us to better assist customers by providing them with the most 'smoothly running' framework."

Ian McLeod, EVP and Chief Products Officer, SmartBear, said, "Rich Internet applications are improving the design and user interface of websites but are also making it more time consuming and costly for many organizations to load test. LoadComplete 2.0 offers Web teams more flexibility to efficiently test all aspects of their websites without the high licensing costs and complex data configuration that often prevent the frequent testing needed in today's agile development environments."

LoadComplete 2.0 delivers:

* Easy load testing for websites built with RIA technologies such as Adobe Flex and Flash, Silverlight, and AJAX.

* Enhanced point-and-click automation for parameterizing test data in AMF, JSON, SOAP, XML, and Silverlight data formats.

* Higher load generation capacity enabling 25 percent more virtual users per node.

* New waterfall charts supportingdetailed analysis of the slowest pages, improving a user's testing productivity by highlighting areas with possible performance problems.

Sean Kenefick, Research Director, Applications Platform Strategies, Gartner Inc., said, "Organizations continually find bottlenecks after it's too late to effectively address them. Teams can increase the business value of their applications by implementing load and performance testing as early in the development life cycle as possible."

LoadComplete 2.0 is the latest addition to the SmartBear Quality Anywhere Platform([TM]). This platform also includes TestComplete([TM])for functional test automation, AlertSite([R]), for Web and mobile performance monitoring, and soapUI for testing Web services and APIs, all of which also offer extensive support for RIAs.
