XStudio Quick OverviewEric Gavaldo


Slide2 l.jpg


  • XStudio is a Test Management System that:

    • Gathers all your tests (generation of test plans)

    • Builds your test campaigns (manually or using filters)

    • Schedules and executes them in sessions (generation of test reports)

    • Deport test execution on remote agents (using XAgent)

  • But it also manages your specifications (requirements and functional specifications with a configurable workflow) and external documents (including versioning and locking mechanisms)

  • your users (rights, availability, holidays, absences etc.)

  • your projects –scrum oriented– (generation of burndown charts)

  • you defects (integrated or from third-party tools)

  • XStudio also builds some relationships between the SUTs, the documents, the tests and the defects hence allowing to generate a lot of indispensible metrics (coverage, traceability matrix etc.)

  • XStudio is based on the robust and reliable database

  • XStudio can be used through the fat client or your favorite browser/JWS (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari)

  • Easy install (installer on windows, simple unzip on Linux/MacOSX/Apache)

  • Automatic/transparent migration of the database schema when updating

  • Internal architecture based on OO concepts & java templates allowing:

    • Rapid development

    • Improved reliability

  • Using of internal XML interfaces allowing:

    • Easy connectivity with third-party tools (Mantis, BugZilla, Trac)

    • Reusable components

  • LGPL SDK allowing to interface XStudio with any kind of tests (even proprietary) through « launchers »

  • XStudio is localized (already incl. English, French, Spanish, German, Italian)

  • Developing a launcher is trivial but XStudio is already provided with a number of ready-to-be-used LGPL launchers including:

  • Plus a couple of great launchers for manual testing

What else?

  • Import of data (requirements, specifications, tests) from XML, CSV, Excel

  • Self-customization of the test plans and all the reports through standard XSLT transforms

  • Email notifications (test reports, status changes, defects changes etc.)

  • UTF-8 support: the generated reports and email notifications can use any character sets including French, German, Chinese, Japanese, Arab, Hebrew etc.

  • Rules to define test execution ordering

  • THE PRICE !!!! XStudio is free and its commercial support license is 5x to 50x cheaper than all competitors

  • Time to be up-to-speed (XStudio is really simple to use thanks to its user-friendly GUI)

  • The support is great while competitors offer very poor off shored services

  • XStudio handles the complete life cycle of your projects while with competitor’s solutions you need to go through painful and not maintainable (when possible!) integrations with several tools from different vendors

  • XStudio is opened and let you integrate your own proprietary tests. The SDK APIs, the launchers, the localization files are all open-source (licensed under LGPL)

  • The reactivity: if you need an additional feature (or even a customization just for your organization) you can get it very rapidly as XQual provides very efficient and affordable professional services

Slide11 l.jpg


  • Hundreds of installs in the world (especially quite popular in the US, Germany and India)

  • Many reputed companies are already trusting XStudio

And many more…
