Automation Anywhere Expands Testing Anywhere for Silverlight

Feb 6, 2013

Testing Anywhere Improves Testing Collaboration and Creates Automated Software Test Cases Up To 300% Faster

Automation Anywhere (, a global leader in automation software, today announced the newest version of Testing Anywhere for Silverlight. Testing Anywhere is a script-less, comprehensive testing tool for any Silverlight control, any website, or any user.

"For organizations and developers who have invested in Silverlight for Rapid Application Development (RAD) environments, third-party controls are prevalent," said Darshan Jani, VP Products of Automation Anywhere. "With Testing Anywhere, you can avoid time-consuming workarounds by running fully functional Silverlight test cases on a huge range of third-party controls, with no custom alterations necessary."

Testing Anywhere is an intuitive solution offering an impressive set of features and benefits to automate Silverlight testing, including:

  • Truly codeless Silverlight testing: Our SMART Test Recorder recognizes all onscreen Silverlight objects and provides extended automation support for major controls, letting you record test cases and automatically capture all related properties—whether you're trained as a programmer or not.
  • No manual patching or recompiling required: No need to patch and recompile each file manually: a single plugin fills the XAP gap for all related files, and multiple Silverlight properties can be verified with a single command.
  • Wide coverage of third-party and custom controls: As Silverlight gains more traction in more RAD environments, third-party controls are becoming more prevalent. With Testing Anywhere, you can avoid time-consuming workarounds by running fully functional Silverlight test cases on a huge range of third-party controls, with no custom alterations necessary.

Testing Anywhere tests any application on any Windows platform; tests web applications on Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari and Chrome; and tests custom applications written in more than 20 languages including Python, Perl, C++ and C#.

About Testing Anywhere

Testing Anywhere provides a more efficient way perform automated testing and collaborate among QA professionals, developers and other members of the application development life cycle. Testing Anywhere's unique Object Avatar functionality is widely seen as a breakthrough technology for creating test cases, especially useful for agile development. Object Avatar creates test cases up to 300% faster by not needing to connect to an application while creating tests. Testing Anywhere also increases testing speed and improves collaboration through its Test-to-EXE functionality that can convert a test to an EXE, allowing the user to run and share the test case on any machine, even running on computers where Testing Anywhere is not installed. One of the most powerful features of Testing Anywhere is the ability to automate test cases that are not instrumented - QA testers can test product-ready test cases, omitting the need for code stripping at a later time.
