HP launches functional test automation solution LeanFT

HP has launched HP LeanFT, a new functional test automation solution allowing software developers and testers to build and deliver applications rapidly.

The latest HP solution enables organizations to achieve faster time to market, higher predictability and quality, and lower overall costs throughout the development lifecycle, said HP.

“HP LeanFT is designed for developers and testers, and leverages the open ecosystem of popular developer tools with HP’s industry standard Unified Functional Testing platform to build robust, reusable and maintainable tests,” said Jonathon Wright, director of Testing Quality Assurance, at Hitachi.

HP LeanFT is built specifically for continuous testing and continuous delivery, and fits naturally into existing ecosystems such as Microsoft TFS, GIT, and Subversion and frameworks that support test driven and behavior driven development. It has powerful test automation authoring with either C# or Java, and IDE integration.

HP claims that its application testing products are used by over 5,000 customers globally. The new solution is integrated with HP Application Lifecycle Management, Quality Center, and Mobile Center, which allows developers and testers to reduce maintenance costs, share testing resources, and deliver new mobile applications at Agile speed.

HP also introduced major upgrades to its flagship HP Unified Functional Testing and HP Business Process Testing products, including support for GIT integration as a repository option and scriptless keyword-driven testing.

Customers who upgrade to HP UFT 12.5 will receive HP LeanFT free of charge.
