There is a growing requirement for IBM i shops to develop, modify and test applications quickly and improve speed to market. However, many IBM i applications have been built with monolithic code that is rarely well documented, which introduces risk when developers make changes to these applications. Automation is key to adapting rapidly and moving multiple projects (e.g. field resizing and RPG refactoring) to completion.
Fresche's end-to-end testing suite, which includes X-Datatest and the newly-released X-Replay, reduces risk by enabling developers to automatically test the UI, business logic and the database. X-Datatest prepares test databases, develops test cases, provides regression testing and integrates with IBM’s Code Coverage to help test business logic. Together, the solutions form a highly effective IBM i application testing suite.
