Replay Solutions Selenium Integration Adds Seamless Defect Identification, Communication and Root Cause Analysis to Test Automation

Selenium Integration Extends Automated Testing Deeper Into the Software Lifecycle for QA and Development Teams

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - Replay Solutions, (, a leader in continuous application monitoring, software debugging and defect resolution technology, today announced new, deep integration with Selenium, one of the fastest growing automated test and quality solutions available today.

ReplayDIRECTOR's integration with Selenium dramatically improves software quality by eliminating time-consuming and often incomplete manual defect documentation procedures, thus ensuring that software issues detected during automation testing will be captured and recorded with 100% fidelity. This allows any team member worldwide to reproduce and analyze issues in seconds, without having to have access to the complex environment or testing harness. Software issues can be resolved 50% faster using Selenium with ReplayDIRECTOR.

Jason Huggins, the creator of Selenium and founder of Sauce Labs commented, "Selenium plus ReplayDIRECTOR can capture application details of failures for deep analysis and reproduction by QA and development. This integration will benefit a wide range of Selenium users including large global financial institutions, as well as software vendors, who can enhance their Selenium automated testing with ReplayDIRECTOR."

 "Many of our customers have increased the return on their Selenium investment by using ReplayDIRECTOR to extend the test automation from problem detection to include automated defect documentation, communication and reproduction," said Jonathan Lindo, founder and VP of Products and Technology.

How Selenium Integration Works

Using ReplayDIRECTOR, Selenium automation extends deeper into the software lifecycle and workflow in three ways.

1. When software failures occur, critical information such as logs, database calls, user actions, screenshots and code execution are all captured and documented automatically.

2. During the analysis and resolution phase of the issue lifecycle, the setup, configuration and generation of load on the software to reproduce an issue is automated without the need of the original environment.

3. During replay, ReplayDIRECTOR executes the original code in a live debugging environment, guaranteeing complete problem reproduction, pinpoint root-cause diagnosis and quick resolution.

All of this can occur on a single workstation or desktop without having to have access to the original Selenium test environment where the issue occurred.
