Often With Less Labor

    BEDFORD, Mass., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated Computer Solutions,
 Inc. (ICS) today announced the release of Replay Xcessory(TM), the first
 modern testing environment in over five years for UNIX and Linux professionals
 using Motif. Replay Xcessory fills an increasing demand of Motif developers
 for full-featured, intuitive testing tools that support the most current
 platforms.  This release demonstrates ICS's commitment to the development of
 breakthrough technologies and continued support for the Motif community.
     Replay Xcessory makes the creation and execution of complex application
 tests intuitive and efficient.  It allows developers and QA professionals to
 record user interactions, create test baselines, capture critical information
 for validation purposes, and replay sessions interactively or through batch
 mode to ensure the application continues to function correctly.  Replay
 Xcessory operates on objects rather than screen location, making test scripts
 more resilient.  Complex tests, especially large volumes of data-driven stress
 tests, are easily built using the full power of the TCL scripting language
 that drives Replay Xcessory.  The product eliminates the error-prone and
 time-consuming processes associated with manual testing.
     "With the launch of Replay Xcessory, ICS has addressed several critical
 customer demands to seamlessly test their pre-existing and new Motif
 applications without all the hassles of doing it manually," said Mark Hatch,
 Chief Operating Officer of Integrated Computer Solutions, Inc.  "Once again,
 ICS is leading the market with software solutions to help our customers create
 and maintain mission-critical, high-performance applications."
     With Replay Xcessory, developers can:
     -- Test multiple applications simultaneously
     -- Attach a test to an already running application
     -- Easily create and maintain complex tests with full TCL support
     -- Automatically synchronize with system response time, preventing script
     -- Easily build and manage libraries of test suites
     -- Choose interactive or unattended playback
     -- Automatically generate reports
     Replay Xcessory is currently available on HP-UX, Red Hat, Red Hat
 Enterprise, Fedora Core, and SUSE Linux.  More information and evaluation
