SAN JOSE, CA – June 22, 2011 – Automation Anywhere, a global leader in automation software today announced the newest version of Testing Anywhere, now available for Silverlight and Java applications. Testing Anywhere first launched in December 2009 and is being adopted by large system integrators and other software development teams looking for significantly better efficiencies and quality around automated software testing

Testing Anywhere provides a new, more efficient way to automate software 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.

“When we launched Testing Anywhere few years ago, we saw immediate interest from major System Integrators, developers and QA professionals who saw how much time our unique Object Avatar and test-to-exe functionality could save them,” said Mihir Shukla, founder and CEO of Automation Anywhere. “Automation Anywhere now serves large customers in both the business process automation market as well as in automated software testing. Today, we are glad today to be able to extend Testing Anywhere to people working with Java and Silverlight.”
