Hi: I am excited to announce that TestMaker 4.0 is now available. The 
new code includes a test agent recorder based on the MaxQ project. The 
recorder watches you use a browser and creates a Jython-based test 
agent script. JDOM ships with TestMaker and is used to handle Web 
Service request and response XML data. It's all open-source and 
available now at http://www.pushtotest.com/ptt. -Frank


PushToTest TestMaker 4.0 Adds Automatic Recording

Major new release writes test agents automatically, visualizes test 
results in charts and meters, and delivers new friendly graphic test 

CAMPBELL, Ca., June 17, 2003 – PushToTest today released TestMaker 4.0, 
a major new release of the popular free open-source utility and 
framework to check Web-enabled applications (HTTP, HTTPS, SOAP, 
XML-RPC) and email systems (SMTP, POP3, IMAP) for scalability, 
performance and reliability. TestMaker 4.0 is available for free 
download immediately at http://www.pushtotest.com.

"TestMaker 4.0's new Recorder feature furthers our mission to provide 
an easy-to-use test and monitoring platform that checks Web-enabled 
applications for functionality, scalability and reliability," said 
Frank Cohen, Founder at PushToTest. "TestMaker is an ideal solution for 
businesses that need to leverage the combined work of software 
developers, QA technicians and IT managers to conduct functional unit 
testing, stress testing, regression testing and service monitoring"

TestMaker 4.0 is the latest improvement to this popular test utility 
and framework since 1998. TestMaker pioneered the use of Jython (a 100% 
Java implementation of Python scripting language) and library of 
protocol handlers in a friendly graphical environment to build and 
automate intelligent test agents that act like real users on an 
Internet-enabled system. TestMaker provides answers to Web-enabled 
application infrastructure purchase decisions and enables enterprises 
to test systems and tune software applications under development.

TestMaker 4.0 includes these improvements:

* Recorder: The recorder watches your use of a Web browser and writes a 
complete test agent automatically.

* Live Charts and Meters: Visualize test results in graphical line, bar 
and pie charts.

* New Graphical Environment: A faster editor, integrated file explorer, 
efficient drop-down menus, and more preference settings make TestMaker 
4.0 even easier to use.

* Syntax Highlighting: The new editor shows script commands in special 
highlighted type.

* Easy File System Explorer: Quickly navigate to test agent files.

* On-line Help System: Instant access to all documentation.

* Auto-update Check: Tells you when new updates to TestMaker are 

TestMaker 4.0 is available for free download immediately from the
