This release includes the following enhancements:
Release date: May 9, 2022
OpenID Connect Support
You can now authenticate on DTP via OpenID Connect to add a layer of security to your interactions with your DTP server. See Configuring OpenID Connect in the UI and Configuring OpenID Connect the .properties File for details. Depending on your requirements, two methods are available to authenticate on the OpenID Connect server from the command line: device code and certificate. Device code authentication is enabled by default.
Jtest Container Image at Docker Hub
You can download a ready to use Jtest container image from Docker Hub: https://hub.docker.com/r/parasoft/jtest. See also Deploying Jtest in a Docker Container.
Unit Test Assistant Enhancements
Support for Mockito 3 and 4
We've added support for Mockito 3 and 4.
Static and Constructor Mocks Using Mockito
Static method and constructor mocking is now supported using Mockito instead of PowerMock for bulk creation. Recommendations and quick fixes related to static and constructor mocking for tests that already use PowerMock are still supported. If you want to enable static and constructor mocking during bulk creation on projects created prior to 2022.1 that use PowerMock, you need to reconfigure your tests. See What if tests fail when running PowerMock with mockito-inline? for details about updating your PowerMock tests and converting PowerMock tests to Mockito. See Mockito Static and Constructor Mocking Limitations for details about cases which are not supported by Mockito.
Unit Test Bulk Creation Enhancements
- Test cases generated during bulk creation now cover exception blocks
- We've optimized bulk creation to eliminate test cases that do not provide additional coverage or do not compile
- We've improved assertions created for numeric object and null types
Support for Parallel Builds
Jtest now collects test coverage for Maven and Gradle parallel builds. We've added limited support for executing parallel tests with Maven. For details, see Testing and Analysis with Maven and Testing and Analysis with Gradle.
Enhanced Password Security
Strong encryption based on AES 128 is now used for all encoded passwords to provide enhanced security. Existing passwords using the old encryption method are accepted for backward compatibility.
Support for IDEs
We've added support for the following IDEs:
- IntelliJ 2021.2
- IntelliJ 2021.3
- Eclipse 2021-12 (4.22)
- Eclipse 2022-03 (4.23)
Extended Security Compliance Pack
We've extended the Security Compliance Pack by adding support for the latest versions of CWE and OWASP Top 10. See the New and Updated Test Configurations section below.
New and Updated Test Configurations
We've added the following test configurations:
We've updated the following test configurations:
- OWASP Top 10-2021
Updated Static Analysis Rules
We've updated the following rules:
Updated Flow Analysis Rules
We've updated the following rules:
Additionally, the id of rule BD.PB.ARRAYINP has been changed to: BD.SECURITY.ARRAY.
- You can now specify a custom name of your Jtest report. See report.file.name.
- We've added support for Gradle 7.3 and 7.4
- We've added support for Lombok 1.18.22.
- IPv6 is now supported.
- We've improved creating a local Maven repository with Maven and Gradle plugin dependencies.
- We've improved Jtest's performance when running test configuration containing Flow Analysis rules
- We've improved Flow Analysis rules accuracy source code contains compiler-generated or class initialization code
- We've addressed log4j vulnerabilities (log4j version 2.17.1 is used for this release).
- Support for JUnit 3 is now deprecated and will be removed in future versions.
- Upgrading to 2022.1 might cause machine ID change on Windows and Linux. Verify your machine ID before requesting a new license from Parasoft. See Obtaining the Machine ID.
- General improvements to the Flow Analysis engine may cause some differences in the violations reported by Flow Analysis 2022.1 and the previous version.
- To add support for enhanced UTA and achieve compatibility between test ids in different versions of Junit, we've changed the format of Junit 5 tests ids. This might cause some data stored on DTP to become invalid.
- TFS SDK libraries are now no longer distributed as part of Parasoft. If you want TFS support to work on your machine, you need to install TFS SDK from vendor.
Removed and Deprecated Support for Environments
Removed Support for IDEs
Support for the following IDEs is now removed:
- IntelliJ 2017-2019
- Eclipse 4.4
- Eclipse 4.5
