Three Rivers Institute Releases JUnit Max 1.2 Continuous testing tool lets programmers stay focused on coding instead of waiting for test results

MERLIN, Ore., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Three Rivers Consulting, Inc. today announced that JUnit Max (, a continuous testing plug-in for Eclipse, is now available. JUnit Max enables programmers to stay focused on coding by running tests intelligently and reporting results unobtrusively. Available for Java projects, JUnit Max provides the benefits of automated testing every time you save source code.

"We were the first to offer a commercial, enterprise continuous testing tool, enabling programmers to improve focus and reduce overall development time," said Kent Beck, founder and director of Three Rivers Consulting, Inc. "Customers tell us that our tools deliver great value by saving time in building and testing applications," continued Beck.

JUnit Max simplifies and accelerates developer testing. It is a high-productivity alternative to existing brute-force test runners. JUnit Max takes advantage of the fact that failures are not randomly distributed to provide results, on average, more quickly than other test runners. The accelerated feedback helps programmers fix errors faster and learn to avoid mistakes in the future.

Customers using the beta release for software development have noted:

  • "It's like driving an automatic instead of a stick shift. It frees your mind to focus on the design instead of the mechanics of ensuring that tests have been run."
  • "It's as if you have a sharp saw again. I didn't appreciate how much work was involved in managing tests until I started to use JUnit Max."

U.S. Pricing and Availability

Three Rivers Consulting, Inc.'s release of JUnit Max is now available. It runs on the Eclipse 3.5 or 3.6 platform. JUnit Max is priced at $100/year for single licenses, with multi-seat discounts available.
