Rapise is ideal for functional GUI testing - both client-server and standalone applications, cross-browser web testing, and the testing of web service APIs. Rapise is the ideal testing solution for today's agile software projects.

With Rapise you can use the same environment to test all these technologies.

Rapise's cross-browser testing capabilities are best in class, with support for multiple versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Choose Rapise to test web applications in all of the most widely used browsers. Record or create one test script and execute the same script without modification across the major browsers. Built-in support for GWT and YUI.

Rapise includes a built-in Web Service testing module that allows you to prototype web service requests, inspect the message packets and returned data and then create reusable objects that can be used in your Rapise test scripts. With native support for JSON data formats, you can now test the UI and back-end of Ajax web applications in a single integrated scenario.

When used with SpiraTest you can manage an entire Rapise global test lab from your central SpiraTest server and have an integrated set of reports and dashboards containing all your automated testing results.

You can record and create your test cases using Rapise, upload them to SpiraTest with full version control and then schedule the tests to be executed on multiple remote computers.

Rapise®'s open architecture provides unlimited flexibility to extend and customize automated testing to meet unique test needs. Rapise's extreme adaptability means improved quality and reduced time to market.

Users can modify and extend key functions and customize aspects of the recording and test execution behaviors by creating custom plug-in libraries using JavaScript, the most widely used scripting language.
