Announcing TestCafe - A Revolutionary Web Testing Framework
Aug 07, 2013 (01:08 PM EDT)

GLENDALE, Calif., Aug. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DevExpress is proud to announce the immediate availability of TestCafe, a web testing framework built to address the evolving application testing needs of organizations throughout the world. Engineered to test any web application, anywhere on any device, TestCafe empowers developers and test engineers with industry-first capabilities designed to fundamentally improve the web testing experience and connected quality assurance processes.


"When it comes to web app testing, TestCafe stands head and shoulders above our competition," said Julian M Bucknall, CTO at DevExpress. "TestCafe generates tests that are as clean and simple as possible. Our market-first architecture minimizes the use of system resources so tests can be executed in parallel against multiple browsers without needing awkward plug-ins. And with TestCafe, you can write tests and run them on multiple operating systems, including mobile platforms such as iOS - Android, and on the device itself."

Test Anything, Anywhere, on Any Device

TestCafe can record and run functional tests on any browser that supports HTML 5, across all major operating systems including Windows, Mac and Linux.  Its revolutionary architecture allows tests to be executed on remote computers and mobile devices such as the iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Phone. Its enterprise-ready capabilities allow tests to run in multiple browsers and on multiple machines in parallel.

Leverage Existing Knowledge

Built to maximize developer and test engineer productivity, TestCafe eliminates the use of out-of-process browser plug-ins so common in competing tools and places control back into the hands of the user. With smart script injection, TestCafe allows testers to access and manipulate the webpage DOM and to intercept user actions directly. Its straightforward and easy-to-learn API means wrapper-free access to DOM via jQuery or the browser's API.

Unlike its competitors, TestCafe does not use proprietary scripting languages. All tests are coded in JavaScript and only a dozen new functions need to be learned. And because TestCafe is fully encapsulated, it will coexist with any JavaScript libraries on the webpage permitting full use of existing knowledge and expertise. 

Record Tests - Find and Fix Errors

TestCafe ships with a built in visual test recorder and can execute generated tests on-demand or as part of a Continuous Integration system. Its traffic analysis system notifies developers and test engineers about missing resources, response codes and JavaScript errors. Fully integrated markup analyses makes certain that webpage elements are actually available and visible to users.
