In an industry where rapid software development and high-quality performance are paramount, Tricentis Tosca continues to lead the way in providing robust testing solutions that help teams deliver their best work faster. The latest release, Tosca 2023.1, introduces a host of new features designed to streamline your testing process, enhance your Oracle Fusion application automation, and ensure legal compliance with accessibility testing.

Run web accessibility testing early in your development

One of the major features of this update is the ability to reuse your existing test cases in Tosca to run automated web accessibility testing on top with no extra rework. This helps teams catch potential issues early in development, while validating applications’ accessibility compliance against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and A/A measures. Tosca performs a complete check of the entire page and reports on violations such as empty links, distinguishable page titles, color/contrast issues, ARIA labels, dynamic content, and more. You can add accessibility checks on individual test steps, test cases, or entire end-to-end flows depending on your requirements.

Accessibility testing is critical for a number of reasons. Over 17% of the world’s population lives with some form of disability, and over 70% of global websites today are inaccessible to people with disabilities. Additionally, digital access laws like the European Accessibility Act (in draft mode as of this writing) will enforce accessibility by 2023 for not only the public sector, but also private-sector organizations. Other laws, like Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 in the U.S., already mandate web content accessibility.

By leveraging Tosca’s automated accessibility testing, teams can test early and rapidly while ensuring more inclusive products that are compliant and ready for the diverse digital world. This feature is available as a tech preview in Tosca 2023.1.

Enhancing Oracle Fusion application automation

We’re also proud to announce native support for Oracle Fusion applications, utilizing a native Oracle engine in Tosca to increase the robustness and speed of Oracle app delivery. Oracle Fusion is an enterprise application suite consisting of ERP, HCM, and CRM systems that streamline business processes and enhance productivity. Organizations today need to ensure they have robust testing in place to keep up with Oracle’s quarterly update cadence, which only provides a two-week window for testing prior to the update’s general availability.

Thanks to Tosca’s native Oracle automation engine, teams can resolve pain points like frequent updates, complexity and customization, and integration with third-party systems. With Tosca, you can achieve more resilient automation for complex objects, easier creation and maintenance of Oracle Fusion tests, reduced costs, and increased speed.

SAP testing at DevOps speed with Tosca

Furthermore, Tosca 2023.1 introduces the ability to trigger Tosca test executions directly within Solution Manager. This allows you to run your SAP tests faster and more smoothly in your CI/CD pipelines across any SAP application and version, truly allowing teams to release SAP changes at DevOps speed.

Tosca 2023.1 also offers the latest best-in-class support for SAPUI5, SAP SuccessFactors, SAP GUI SAP NWBC and more. Teams can expect faster, more flexible test execution and quickly pinpoint test case failures through tighter integration, enabling them to deliver SAP changes more rapidly.

Other key enhancements

Several other notable updates in Tosca 2023.1 include:

  • PowerBuilder TBox support: This new engine helps users test applications built with PowerBuilder technology, commonly used in banking, financial services, and more.
  • Headless XBrowser testing enhancements: Now, our XBrowser engine can create screenshots during a headless execution for easier debugging of failed headless executions.
  • .Net 6 application support: If you upgrade your WinForm and WPF applications to .Net 6, Tosca will be able automate them.
  • XBrowser enhanced debugging: When testing web applications, you may want to know if an error was thrown in the console log or understand how the network traffic was working. We therefore enabled our XBrowser solution to deliver these results.
  • DEX enhancements: DEX now supports the use pf MS SQL Server which provides more stable and better-performing Server component.

With these significant enhancements, Tosca 2023.1 is set to transform your testing process, making it more efficient, comprehensive, and compliant. Stay ahead of the curve with Tosca’s industry-leading testing solutions.
