Anubex’ TestMatch provides automatic testing of mainframe OLTP (terminal based Online Transaction Processing applications). It can be used to facilitate the migration of such legacy applications to open systems, or it can provide an automated regression test suite for a legacy application.
All user interactions can be recorded centrally on an IBM or Siemens mainframe using standard tools, without any client-side or server-side installation of Anubex tools. Since recording is done at the terminal level, it works regardless which development technology (IDMS, BMS, DMS, Natural…) was used to develop the screens or programs.
TestMatch provides detailed analysis of response times and throughput, and also contains helpful utilities to detect performance problems. It calculates elaborate test scenario coverage statistics and the pass rate of replayed tests.
TestMatch visualizes test scenarios and sessions: this includes the terminal contents as well as all attributes that are typical for terminal based applications: protected/editable, MDT bit, reverse-video, colors...
TestMatch offers automated replay of complete scenarios or individual sessions and it can be used for both functional testing and stress testing. Both the TN3270 (IBM) and 9750 (Siemens) protocols are supported.
The integrated diff tool shows a side by side comparison of a recorded scenario and its replayed counterpart.
