Improve Application Quality with Automated Functional Testing

Hiperstation provides automated functional testing capabilities that help DevOps teams reduce time-consuming, manual steps and ensure mainframe applications are thoroughly tested to safeguard superior performance and reliability.

Hiperstation enables developers to:

  • Create automated, consistent, repeatable regression and performance tests representing application business requirements
  • Conduct pre-production performance testing for applications and systems software
  • Analyze test results in which all application response differences are identified
  • Thoroughly document mainframe application testing results
  • Simulate server application responses during a user interface test
  • Test changes to the operating system, language environment or subsystems
  • Test application changes without the user interface

Key Product Features of Hiperstation

  • Record Application Activity
    Records actual application activity and captures data streams on test or production systems flowing through the mainframe, including from other platforms
  • Replay Application Activity
    Simulates client requests and provides limited support for testing the distributed front-end
  • Report Application Activity
    Helps organize recorded application activity into useful reports that highlight key trends, events and results
  • Repeatable Testing
    Creates automatable scripted tests that replay functions in unattended mode, allowing you to perform more test iterations in less time
  • Complete and Flexible Quality Assurance Testing
    • Test mainframe applications and back-office server components of web-based and distributed applications using TCP/IP and APPC protocols, or using WebSphere MQ
    • Test any mainframe green screen application, including those running in CICS, IMS/DC, IDMS/DC or TSO
  • View Application Performance Statistics
    Integration with Compuware Strobe performance statistics provide visibility into the actual performance of the application being tested to ensure it meets specific performance criteria for production
