Just now i downloaded jtest from parasoft.com
But how can i get license .Just i need to evaluate this product.So how can i get the license??
You will have to contact Parasoft either by phone or by dropping them an email, see the parasoft website.
I have evaluated JTest version 4.5 myself, maybe you can use some of my findings (or further investigate them).
1) JTest support for JUnit testing is limited to te abilty to (one time)
generate a skeleton with the declarion of a testmethod for each public
method. The tests are incorporated into the JTest analysis.
2) Did you know that JTest can not test JTest itself ? They exclude all
packages starting with "com.parasoft" from analysis.
No wonder because JTest generates 24 'serious' dynamic errors for
JUnit version 3.7 and 255 for Ant .....
They should rename JTest to the 'stacktrace generating application'.
3) analyzing Ant which has 241 classes and creating all reports takes 550MB (jarfile is approx. 415Kb)
JTest looks quite impressive at first glance.
But in fact the 'magical' generated tests that result in massive findings of runtime exceptions are in my opinion not very relevant.
How can it be that tools like JUnit (used by JTest itself) and Ant which are used by thousands of developers all over the world are hammered by JTest for having 'serious runtime exceptions' ?
You could argue that a lot of these reported errors can be avoided by adding DbC checks.
But you are only kidding yourself when you do this and do NOT use DbC in your application.
How many companies want their software being post processed by DbC, which add's Java code and thus messes up your stacktraces etc.
I'm interested in your findings, so let me know !
Hopefully you'll get a longer evaluation period than I did : 2 1/2 days...
