Parasoft Jtest is a comprehensive Java testing product for development teams building Java EE, SOA, Web, and other Java applications. Whether a team is trying to build quality into new code or extend a legacy code base without breaking existing functionality, Jtest provides them a practical way to ensure that their Java code works as expected. It empowers them to modify their code quickly and with confidence, resulting in optimization of development resources and control of development schedules and costs.

Jtest is packaged and licensed in the following editions designed to separate functionality to specific roles and processes in the typical software development environment:

  • Jtest Professional Edition
  • Jtest Architect Edition
  • Jtest Server Edition

test allows us to reduce errors at the source, adjust our practices as necessary to eliminate a repeat of that error, and improve our overall software development process that carries forward from project to project. That is where we save real time and money in the long run.


  1. Modify existing code quickly, and with confidence ? Enables teams to quickly build a regression safety net that will expose defects immediately upon introduction and determine if code modifications break existing functionality? even if the team has a large existing code base with no tests or minimal tests.
  2. Control development costs and schedules ? Exposes errors as early as possible, which is when they are fastest and cheapest to fix. Tests a broad range of potential user paths to uncover difficult-to-find problems that could delay releases or require post-release patches.
  3. Optimize development resources ? Automatically vets approximately 80% of coding issues so developers can spend less time on line-by-line inspections and debugging, and more time on design, algorithms, and implementation.
  4. Leverage the power of the latest technologies while controlling their risks ? Reduces the difficulty of testing complex enterprise applications (such as SOA/Web services and Java EE applications).
  5. Gain instant visibility into Java code's quality and readiness ? Provides on-demand objective code assessments and tracks progress towards quality and schedule targets.


  1. Automatically creates sensitive low-noise regression test suites?even for large code bases
  2. Automatically finds runtime bugs in execution paths that may cross multiple methods, classes, or packages
  3. Generates functional JUnit test cases that capture actual code behavior as a deployed application is exercised
  4. Generates extendable JUnit and Cactus (in-container) tests that expose reliability problems and capture behavior
  5. Executes the test suite to identify regressions and unexpected side effects
  6. Parameterizes test cases for use with varied, controlled test input values (runtime-generated, user-defined, or from data sources)
  7. Monitors test coverage and achieves high coverage using branch coverage analysis
  8. Identifies memory leaks during test execution
  9. Steps through tests with the debugger
  10. Tests individual methods, classes, or large, complex applications
  11. Checks compliance to configurable sets of over 700 built-in rules, including 100 security rules
  12. Corrects violations of 250 rules
  13. Allows creation of custom rules by modifying parameters, using a graphical design tool, or providing code that demonstrates a sample rule violation
  14. Calculates metrics such as Inheritance Depth, Lack Of Cohesion, Cyclomatic Complexity, Nested Blocks Depth, Number Of Children
  15. Identifies and refactors duplicate and unused code
  16. Supports Struts, Spring, Hibernate, EJBs, JSPs, servlets, and so on
  17. Full integration with Eclipse, RAD, JBuilder
  18. Limited integration (result import only) with IntelliJ IDEA and Oracle JDeveloper
  19. Integration with most popular source control systems
  20. Automates the peer code review process (including preparations, notifications, and routing)
  21. Shares test settings and files team-wide or organization-wide
  22. Generates HTML and XML reports
  23. Tracks how test results and code quality change over time
