AutomatedQA, a provider of easy-to-use and affordable tools for testing and developing high-quality applications, today announced AQtime 5, the next release of the company's award-winning performance profiler and memory debugger. Designed to give developers insight into all aspects of the performance of critical business applications, AQtime 5 includes new features to further expedite and automate the application analysis and debug process, resulting in improved software product quality, reduced long-term development costs and customer satisfaction. Additionally, AQtime 5 extends its support to 64-bit Windows applications, making it the one analysis and debugging application that should be in every developer's toolbox.
According to a study from the Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology, software errors cost the U.S. economy approximately $59.5 billion annually. Manually pinpointing these errors before the product ships is notoriously difficult and time-consuming. It is not unusual for developers to spend days tracking down just one performance and memory problem. But automating test and debug processes can significantly reduce these errors, relieving both time and money spent readying critical business applications for widespread use.
"Automating application testing and debugging is a critical part of a quality assurance initiative," said Jim Duggan, vice president at Gartner. "Companies and software teams will benefit greatly from application development solutions that shorten project life cycles, accelerate time-to-market and relieve developers of manual processes."
AQtime 5, a powerful general-use analysis and debugging tool, analyzes a running Windows application in real time to gather and display detailed statistics about an application's performance, resource usage and source code coverage. In fact, AQtime 5 customers have noted that they often find the cause of problems and fix them within minutes after deploying the product. With support for both 32- and 64-bit Windows and .NET applications, libraries and services (including IIS, ASP and ASP.NET modules), AQtime 5 offers more than one dozen profilers and productivity tools for complete top-to-bottom application analysis.
Additional AQtime 5 features and capabilities include:
-- Ability to exclude known memory leaks from results. AQtime 5 can automatically filter out known memory problems in Microsoft MFC and Borland VCL libraries to let developers focus on issues in their own code instead of standard library problems they can't easily fix. -- Improved IDE integration. AQtime 5 can run alone and is tightly integrated with Microsoft Visual Studio or Borland Developer Studio. AQtime 5 also supports Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team System. -- Visual Studio integration enhancements include support for the Run button, ability to display profiling results as a Hint and the AQtime Context Sensitive right-click button.
"AutomatedQA's product line, including AQtime 5, enables small companies to Fortune 1000 corporations to deliver high-quality and reliable applications on time and on budget," said Atanas Stoyanov, chief scientist, AutomatedQA. "By enabling software development teams to detect memory errors, isolate resource leaks and create comprehensive line-level analysis of application performance, AQtime 5 will help our customers proactively address development issues and gain a competitive advantage."
