X-Replay Simplifies 5250 UI Testing Through Automation

Accelerate IBM i UI Testing & Deployment

X-Replay is a function-rich 5250 screen testing solution that provides a flexible, highly-automated method of testing your IBM i application UIs during development. X‑Replay records interactive test cases, replays them automatically and uses a dashboard to report on whether the results are as expected. The solution automatically produces test scripts that can be modified and re-run as needed. X‑Replay easily integrates with X-Datatest, which includes database regression testing and test data management.

Integration with Fresche's X-Datatest Provides an End-to-End Testing Suite

X-Replay easily integrates with Fresche's X-Datatest to provide end-to-end testing, including UI, business logic and the database.
