New release enhances core product elements including scripting, image capture, connectivity, and OCR

London, UK – December 3, 2014 – TestPlant, the maker of the eggPlant range of software quality tools, today announced the release of eggPlant Functional v15, the latest version of its flagship test automation tool. The new product contains several new features and enhancements to help accelerate and simplify the test creation process.

Key new features of eggPlant Functional v15 include keyword-driven testing, which offers a simple Excel-style approach to creating cross-platform test scripts, and script recording, which delivers a familiar “record-and-playback” style experience, but with all the robustness and cross-platform capabilities that users have come to expect from eggPlant.

As optical character recognition (OCR) is being used more-and-more for cross-platform and highly dynamic apps, eggPlant Functional v15 also includes new OCR capabilities and increased robustness. In addition, v15 can now use Remote Desktop Protocol instead of VNC to test Windows computers, which reduces setup time and is aligned with most enterprise’s IT security policies. RDP is the native mechanism for remote controlling Windows computers.

“eggPlant Functional v15 is the most significant update we’ve delivered since mobile support was added in 2010,” said Antony Edwards, CTO, TestPlant. “As always, our goal is to make test creation simpler, faster, and more effective, and we have made some significant steps in these areas with v15.”

A webinar demonstrating the new features of eggPlant Functional v15 will be held on 4 December 2014. Please click here to register.
