eValid Used In Software Testing World Cup Contest

In a novel event in the software testing community, an experienced eValid user, Mr. Raymond Rivest, will be part of a team competing in the Software Testing World Cup (STWC) on 25 April 2014. The team will be using the eValid suite for site scanning and performance testing

The STWC contest features six regional competitions – North America, Oceania, South America, Asia, Africa and Europe – held between 25 April 2014 and 19 July 2014. The six regional events
have each team allocated a 3-hour period during which they will all try to test the same web application. The test target won't be specified until the start of the contest period so every team is on an equal footing. Each regional event picks one winning team.

All six regional winners will travel to Potsdam, Germany for the final competition on 10 November 2014. The ultimate winner receives a cash award of €3000.
The STWC event is organized by the Berlin Management Consulting firm of Diaz Hilterscheid GmbH.

Upcoming eValid Webinar

Load Testing Mobile Web Apps

8 May 2014, 11:00 AM PDT


eValid is a self-contained one-stop solution that provides functional and performance testing of all kinds of Mobile applications. You can write structurally oriented tests that are invulnerable to application changes and still have the ability to make very fine-detail performance measurements -- entirely from the client perspective.

Then, you can run 100's or 1,000's of simultaneous "browser user" sessions to simulate 100% real activity of users driving your mobile application.

In this webinar you'll learn these important lessons:

Mobile Web App Functional Testing: How to create perfectly reliable AJAX tests for mobile applications, running on ANY device, using out-of-the-box recording methods, including handling complex AJAX playback synchronization issues.

Setting up LoadTest Scenarios: How to organize one or multiple eValid mobile functional tests for meaningful server loading experiments.

Running LoadTests: How to run 100's or 1,000's, or even 10,000's of eValid Browser Users (BUs) against your server.

Collecting Realistic Data: How to extract detailed performance from the mobile web application servers to identify performance bottlenecks and issues.

New eValid V9 Documentation Update

As eValid users know, the online version of the eValid documentation is modified and updated regularly. This version is viewable from the eValid browser face via the eValid: Help > Documentation > User Manual menu pulldown.
Some users, for convenience and flexibility, also want to have the eValid doumentation available as an offline document in PDF. We provide that file in the standard eValid License Support Page that accompanies each eValid installation. Our recent updates to the PDF version bring it into complete synchrony with the online version. Fair warning: it is a hefty document with 1,695 pages of detailed material.
Regular eValid users can obtain their copy from their regular password-protect product delivery license page. Non-users who wish to take a look can make a request and if approved we will provide you the link to this file. Please Use the Contact Us page to make this request.
