Tricentis Tosca 12.0 introduces multiple enhancements for mobile testing. This release supports test automation of mobile applications built with Cordova and Xamarin frameworks. It also enables customers to see what is happening on the devices on their desktop when the mobile devices are scanned for creating test cases or the tests are executed on the mobile device.
In addition, customers can now configure the Appium based mobile engine, the mobile device or your system under test wheather they are executing test cases or scanning mobile application to create test cases.
Tricentis Tosca 12.0 introduces multiple enhancements for API testing. This release introducesa new API Message Recorder thatallows customers to visualize and analyze the traffic between the system under test and the backend while running the UI tests. The Message Recorder can also intercept HTTP messages via the local system proxy. These recordings can then be reused for API testing and service virtualization.

Tricentis Tosca 12.0 introduces a new functionaly that allows Tricentis Orchestrated Service virtualization to fall back to a virtualized message in case a virtual service is not available during test execution. This makes end-to-end testing robust by continuing to execute test and reporting the issue even if any virtual service is inaccessible.
In addition, customers can now easily create Module Attributes for Tricentis Orchestrated Service virtualization Modules with the Attribute Assistant.
Continuous Load Testing — with Flood Element
Since the inception of load testing, the approach has been mostly the same. Users simulate the traffic of an application by creating load at the API or protocol level, e.g JMeter. However, they don’t scale very well for modern distributed web services workload.
We are proud to announce Flood Element – the first open source tool to shift the paradigm of load testing from Protocol Level User(PLU) load generation to Browser Level User (BLU) load generation. With browser level testing, many of the problems of protocol level testing can be eliminated through a holistically different approach using simple language and measuring browser performance.

Continuous Testing has become mandatory to keep pace with Agile and DevOps and benefit from the efficiency gained by these methodologies. Tricentis Tosca CI client has already been supporting the continuous testing in the Continuous Integration pipeline by allowing the build/CI tools to trigger the test execution remotely, distribute them among several agents for parallel execution and pass the result back as JUnit.
Tricentis Tosca 12.0 introduces Jenkins community plugin for Tricentis Tosca with easy configuration UI to make it even convenient for customers to trigger test execution in Tricentis Tosca at the end of a Jenkins build in a Continuous Integration pipeline. The plugin is available for free at Jenkins community.

Tricentis Tosca 12.0 introduces the test automation support for Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) applications. In addition to supporting the test automation of all the Oracle EBS user interfaces, it also support API testing with Oracle Service Bus and Service virtualition to provide comprehensive test automation support Oracle EBS application environment.
Test Data Management
Test Data Management (TDM), that provides secure, reliable, and compliant test data on-demand, is critical for Continuous Testing success. Tricentis Tosca 12.0 expands its Test Data Management (TDM) solution by introducing its new TDM Studio, a designer for creating and masking production data and synthetic test data. Combined with our Test Data (REST) Service, this new Studio offers an unique and innovative approach to providing secure test data to overcome the typical test data challenges.
