PureTest is available free of charge and is targeted for functional testing. PureTest is an application which is primarily used to setup scenarios of tasks, execute and debug them. Even though it supports testing a variety of applications it is especially useful for debugging and testing of web applications. Typically a product life cycle includes several releases. This could be bug releases and releases where new functions has been added.
Every release includes time consuming and costly re-test activities. The concept of Automatic regression test aims to reduce the cost and time for these tests. PureTest include tools supporting this. Together with an Apache Ant task the regression test kan be integrated into the build process. The Ant task included PureTest is capable of running any Scenario. It may be configured to log errors and/or execution times. PureTest is implemented in Java and runs on all platforms supporting Java 1.5. We verify PureTest on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Solaris.
