In this release:

Unit Test Assistant Enhancements

This release includes new features and enhancements to Unit Test Assistant.

  • Support for creating Spring unit tests
    UTA dramatically reduces the complexity for creating JUnit tests for Spring WebMVC controllers that provide HTTPend points. UTA monitors the execution of the Spring JUnit tests and provides valuable insight into runtime behavior of the code under test.
  • Extended support for creating Parameterized tests
    Support for JUnitParams has been enhanced to customize parameterization settings and support the storage of generated test cases in the test code or in an external CSV file. Additionally, you can configure the maximum number of data mutated parameter sets that are created for one test case.
  • Enhancement to the Add test case(s) option
    The Add test case(s) option has been extended and added to the Eclipse context menu, which allows you to select one or more files and packages to create a large number of test cases.

For details, see Creating, Analyzing and Enhancing Tests with Unit Test Assistant.

Suppress Findings Locally on Your Desktop

When you suppress findings in your IDE, the suppression information can now be stored locally on your desktop - without impacting suppressions that are shared across the team via DTP or your source control system. Locally suppressed findings can be reviewed and unsuppressed right in your IDE. For details, see Suppressing Findings.

Static Analysis Customization with Rule Maps

Enhanced rule mapping facilitates quick and flexible implementation of your organization's development policy. You can create rule maps to change the properties of static analysis rules executed by Jtest, such as severity and category, and associate them with test configurations stored in Development Testing Platform.
