The company plans to add Java to the list of supported applications for its existing WinRunner, XRunner, LoadRunner, and TestDirector tools. The new support means software developers can design testing scripts that run Java applications through their paces automatically using multiple browser and operating system combinations. The tools could help to speed up delivery of Java applications.
Mercury said the tools support Sun's Abstract Windowing Toolkit and Java Foundation Classes, Oracle's Developer/2000, and will soon support Microsoft's Windows Foundation Classes, and Symantec's Visual Caf?.
The Java support for the tools is now in beta testing, the company said, with shipment planned by July.
