Parasoft Speaks on How to Expose and Prevent Errors in AJAX Applications

Enables Developers to Build Smooth, Usable Applications for the Web

Parasoft, a provider of Automated Error Prevention solutions for software development, announced its participation in the upcoming AJAXWorld in Santa Clara, California, October 3-4, 2006. On Tuesday, October 3rd, Nathan Jakubiak, lead developer of Parasoft AJAX testing solutions, will showcase Parasoft WebKing, a Web testing and analysis solution that enables Web applications to be tested both from the outside in and from the inside out. This presentation can be seen at 4:50 p.m. in Ballroom AB. On Wednesday, October 4, Mr. Jakubiak will present “How to create automated, reliable, and secure test suites to ensure the quality of AJAX applications.” This presentation can be seen at 6:30 p.m. in Ballroom F.

The rise of AJAX enables developers to build smooth, usable applications for the Web. However, despite the benefits it provides, AJAX also has a number of challenges that make it quite difficult to learn and even more difficult to use correctly. These challenges include JavaScript and browser-compatibility issues, integration with various server-side components, and the asynchronous nature of AJAX. Both presentations will focus on building automated error prevention into the AJAX development process from both functionality and security perspectives, showing how to test the different components of an AJAX application and provide comprehensive test suites for the entire application.

Nathan Jakubiak is a software engineer at Parasoft. He currently manages the development of Parasoft WebKing (an automated error prevention and detection suite for Web applications) and is the lead developer of Parasoft's AJAX testing solution. He has extensive experience developing testing tools for Web-based technologies, and has led the development of customized Web testing solutions for enterprises such as IBM. His Web-related R & D experience has resulted in a number of pending patents in the area of automated regression testing. Jakubiak holds a BS in mathematics from Harvey Mudd College.
