New eValid Usage Agreement with CRIM

Beginning in January 2013 the team of software testers at the CRIM Testing and Interoperability Centre, a part of the Canadian Computer Research Institute of Montreal (CRIM) will have easy and direct access to eValid technology for their projects. CRIM members include over 160 organizations of various types, ranging from academic institutions to large-scale industrial enterprises.

Under the supervision of Mr. Raymond Rivest, Senior Test Specialist, all 140+ members of CRIM will have the right to obtain no-cost, short-term "proof of concept" licenses. Given a successful proof of concept project result, all CRIM members can lease eValid on a Commercial License basis for their project(s) on very favorable discounted short-term and long-term licensing terms.

For information about eValid usage within CRIM and taking advantage of the special terms and conditions of this strategic alliance you can contact Mr. Rivest directly at

EULA and SLA Information

From time to time we do need to re-advise people about the eValid End User License Agreement (EULA). This license applies to all eValid installations, worlwide. You've agreed to this license when you "click-through" in the eValid product installation step.

As we continue to upgrade our infrastructure and make changes to servers for eValid and its various support systems, a question often arises about our Service Level Agreement (SLA). For some of our "public facing" website support, and for some of our Commercial Licenses, we rely in part on machine resources provided to us by Verio (An NTT Communications Company) which are supported to the 99.9% level via Verio's own UNIX Hosting Accounts SLA.

Examples of Structural Testing

We recently have had a number of customers trying out the "structural testing" aspect of eValid. In structural tests the test script uses information that is derived from the PageMap utility to allow "navigation" within a page based on its HTML structure. Scripts built this way are very durable because they don't depend the current contents of a page.

Here are some examples of Testing with DOM Interactions that show fifteen different types of structural test actions that rely on the DOM manipulating, structural test commands in eValid.
