Parasoft Tool Ensures Apps Work With Databases

DataRecon automates load testing, functionality testing and regression testing.

Parasoft Corp., maker of automated error prevention software, next week will roll out DataRecon, a tool that enables developers to ensure that applications properly work with databases.

The tool will be launched at the Software Development East 2002 Conference in Boston on Nov. 19.

DataRecon is designed to automate load testing, functionality testing and regression testing. It is also designed to prevent and detect design problems, data corruption, data pollution (a term used to describe user errors such as misspelling, alternate spelling and invalid character types, for example), functionality problems, structural problems and bottlenecks. It can also be used to perform ad hoc queries with or without DSL and to graphically build HTML reports, then share them on a LAN.

DataRecon is available for Windows 2000/NT/XP and Linux. The suggested list price within the United States starts at $3,495 for a machine-locked, single-user license. Free evaluation copies can be accessed here.
