Sencha Test 2.0 Released
January 31, 2017

Sencha announced the release of Sencha Test 2.0, a unit and end-to-end functional testing solution for Ext JS apps.

In addition, Sencha released its Web Application Testing Maturity Model, specifically designed to guide organizations through the evolution from manual to automated testing as they adopt web application testing in their software development lifecycle.

Sencha Test 2.0 empowers organizations to rapidly deliver applications that meet the quality standards customers have come to expect. New enhancements make it easier than ever for development teams to quickly write and run unit tests. Additionally, QA teams can seamlessly create and execute automated functional tests that improve application quality and boost the overall efficiency of the application development lifecycle.

Sencha Test 2.0 key capabilities include:

- Deeper integration with Ext JS. Increased API-level awareness ensures that changes in the application and underlying Ext JS framework don’t compromise existing tests.

- Ability to test dynamic nature of Ext JS. Unique target element locator strategies will help developers boost the effectiveness of their tests by avoiding the use of dynamic IDs generated by Ext JS.

- Integrates WebDriver for testing multi-page applications.

- Faster test creation. Improved user experience and enhanced event recorder enable the automatic creation and execution of tests.

- Cross-browser simultaneous test execution. Apps can now be tested simultaneously across multiple browsers to safeguard quality.

Sencha also announced its Web Application Testing Maturity Model – a guide to success for companies introducing web application testing in their software development lifecycle. The process begins by assessing a company’s current testing strategy and future goals. Through a series of questions and regular “health checks,” the Web Application Testing Maturity Model helps organizations determine the steps needed to meet their test automation and ROI goals.

“Testing web applications has become critical for organizations. There is no better solution on the market for testing Ext JS applications than Sencha Test 2.0,” said Art Landro, CEO of Sencha. “With our deep understanding of the Ext JS framework we built Sencha Test, so tests don’t become brittle when changes are made to the underlying platform, and so tests can be executed simultaneously across browsers. With the added enhancements of Sencha Test 2.0 and the release of our Web Application Testing Maturity Model, we help organizations improve the efficiency of development and QA teams and quality of their web applications.”
