Automated Web Testing Reimagined

TestCafe is the plugin-free way to test any website or web application in 3 easy steps.

GLENDALE, Calif., April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DevExpress is proud to announce the immediate availability of TestCafe v14.1, an automated web testing framework built to address the evolving app testing needs of the enterprise. Able to test any web application, against any HTML 5 browser on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, TestCafe empowers developers and test engineers with industry-first capabilities designed to fundamentally improve the web testing experience and connected quality assurance methodologies.

"We've built TestCafe to simplify test automation processes for large and small companies alike," said Julian M Bucknall, CTO at DevExpress. "And to help organizations confronting the realities of the BYOD world with a testing platform that is able to record, run and analyze web tests on any desktop or mobile browser without plugins or emulators."

Plugin Free Web Testing Environment

Traditional automated web testing tools force users to install browser plugins in order to record and/or execute tests. At first glance, this might not seem like a concern but in today's BYOD world, the problems associated with plugins are real and quite challenging to overcome.

With TestCafe, QA engineers and web developers no longer worry about plugins and their associated complications. TestCafe works out of the box and guarantees that users do not encounter browser versioning issues and allows them to test against different versions of the same browser without the need to install a complete test environment for one-off test purposes. 

Write and Execute Tests against All Devices within the Enterprise

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 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.

100% Web-Based Visual Test Recorder with Remote Test Capabilities

Built to maximize developer and test engineer productivity, TestCafe ships with a web-based visual test recorder and fully integrated remote testing platform. Together, these features allow organizations to streamline testing activities, increase efficiencies and reduce costs by leveraging TestCafe's powerful plugin-free architecture and its no-nonsense licensing terms of use.

Industry-Standard Scripting and Straightforward Test API

To simplify adoption in any organization, TestCafe uses the "language of the web" for all tests recorded within its test environment. Test scripts are coded in JavaScript and only a handful of 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.

TestCafe's API is both simple and powerful. Tests are executed within the browser as common JS code, which means QA engineers have full access to any standard JS/DOM API.
