Double Win for SmartBear Software in Dr. Dobb’s 2014 Jolt Awards with SoapUI Pro and TestComplete

SmartBear Software, the choice of more than two million software professionals for building and delivering the world’s best applications, is a double winner in the 2014 Dr. Dobb’s Jolt Awards with SoapUI Pro earning the top Jolt Award and TestComplete earning its fourth Jolt Award since 2010, this time a Jolt Productivity Award, in the Best Testing Tools category. SoapUI is the most used API testing tool in the world with over six million downloads. TestComplete is one of the world’s most popular automated testing tools. This year's Jolt Awards for testing tools helped identify some of the best products in the category.

“Because SmartBear has been continually updating SoapUI Pro with the latest capabilities to provide a very useful testing suite with a low learning curve, and as usual with SmartBear products, a high-quality implementation, SoapUI Pro garners the 2014 Jolt Award for Testing Tools,” said Gastón Hillar, Jolt Judge. “Additionally, TestComplete is a product that has made it to the final round of many previous Jolt Awards, and this time, shows important changes including its mobile testing capabilities. TestComplete provides most sites all they need in a testing platform, and it does so with a remarkably good quality of implementation. Even with its new capabilities, TestComplete is an easy-to-use suite.”

Due to the changes sweeping development, testing tools have become considerably more complicated during the last few years. Until recently, testing involved validating PC and server software. Now, it must address the quality needs of mobile devices in their nearly infinite variety, Web platforms of all kinds and the cloud. Each of these platforms presents unique challenges to testing and requires unique tools.

Because software development today relies so much on APIs, it is extremely important to test the interaction with APIs. Jolt judges determined that when working with multiple versions of larger APIs, the additional automation, integration, security testing and reporting features in SoapUI Pro provide a value that totally justifies the investment in the Pro version. Overall, judges determined that SoapUI Pro provides the most complete multi-platform automated API testing suite and allows building the most advanced test scenarios with just a few clicks.

Jolt judges determined that TestComplete showed some important changes this year. The product design enables the suite to improve mobile testing capabilities and to stay up-to-date in several other areas. The TestComplete Platform provides a test IDE with excellent automated testing, recording, integration and reporting features. TestComplete offers a range of scripting languages so you don't need to learn a completely different language to tune testing scenarios. Support for third-party controls in both the updated desktop and Web modules have been expanded to cover many of the most popular software lifecycle products.

The finalists are reviewed in detail both individually and collectively and the judges post their comments to an internal discussion board before taking a final vote. The six finalists are ranked with the top product winning the Jolt Award, the two runners up are given Jolt Productivity Awards and the remaining three products retain their original title of finalists.
