We're excited to announce the newest version of Parasoft dotTEST, focused on increasing developer efficiency and productivity. This release introduces enhancements to our optional OpenAI and Azure OpenAI integration for static analysis, increased precision with test impact analysis, enhancements to dotTEST code coverage agent, and updated support for security coding standards. Continue reading below for more release highlights or check out the complete Release Notes.

What’s New?

Code Coverage Enhancements for Microservice Architectures

dotTEST code coverage agent can now collect coverage during concurrent test executions in the same environment, enabling microservices code coverage support in Parasoft CTP. When dotTEST is coupled with Parasoft CTP, teams can collect code coverage from automated functional tests executions for applications with microservice architectures and gain valuable insight into the overall code coverage for the application or see coverage specific to each individual microservice.

Improvements have also been made to the deployment process for dotTEST coverage agents, enabling a faster and smoother setup process for code coverage collection.

Increased Accuracy of Test Impact Analysis

dotTEST's CLI-based test impact analysis has been made more precise. Impacted unit tests are now calculated based on modified methods rather than modified classes, and code changes that do not affect the code logic no longer trigger impacted tests. This improved accuracy results in acceleration of testing cycles as a very targeted set of unit tests that have been impacted by code changes will be identified for execution.

Static Analysis Updates and Increased Precision for AI-Generated Code Fixes

In the 2024.1 release of dotTEST, Parasoft has enhanced the AI-generated static analysis code fixes produced for flow analysis violations through its optional OpenAI/Azure Open AI integration, offering increased precision and reliability. 

For security compliance, Parasoft static analysis capabilities now include support for CWE 4.14 along with updated static analysis test configurations for other security standards.
