ecFeed listed in Eclipse Marketplace

This is wonderful news! Installing ecFeed in Eclipse is now super easy. Open Eclipse, go to Help->Eclipse Marketplace…, type ‘ecfeed’ in the ‘Find’ box and voila! Now you can install it with one click.

ecFeed 1.12.2 beta

As couple of necessary bugfixes were implemented, we now can announce version 1.12.2-beta ready. Let us know about any additional issues.

ecfeed 1.12.0 beta

It took a while, but here we are with a new release. It is now a beta and will become final as soon as we make sure that it is stable.

Hopefully you will like the new features:

Simplified export of generated test data to xml and cucumber’s .feature file format. With a refactored architecture it will be easy to add a new export format, so if you have a request, let us know by writing to mail@ecfeed.com – we may consider it.

Advanced comparisons constraints. So far in a constraint it was possible just to compare a parameter’s value to one of it’s choices. It was enough in many cases, but we found out that in many cases it is useful to make it more expressive. So now you can compare a parameter to another parameter of the same type or even to a literal. More details on how to use it will come with a tutorial in a separate post.

Check for updates. EcFeed (both plugin and a standalone version) will check our server for a new version every time it is started and notify you about a possibility to update. We will store your request (containing ip and ecFeed version number – no private data) in our database for statistical purposes. If you are not ok with that you can switch of that feature.

ecFeed 1.11.0 final release

ecFeed 1.11.0 final release is now available to download and upgrade from the repository. Comparing to a beta version we fixed some bugs and improved a few annoying shortcomings. Check the tutorial to see how to use it to test web pages without writing any code.

ecFeed 1.10.3

ecFeed 1.10.3 available in the repo. Please update your plugin using the http://ecfeed.com/repo/eclipse update site. It fixes couple of smaller problems related to global parameters.
Also the standalone version is updated. The linux version implements a workaround for editing labels which was impossible before due to problems inside eclipse RCP framework.

ecFeed 1.10.1 released

New patch version is available now to download.  It introduces INSERT key shortcut to add new nodes to a model. In standalone version you do not need to specify location and name of new file when you create new model. Also the new version fixed couple of minor bugs.

The eclipse plugin can be upgraded from the “Install new software” or “Check for updates” menu, as it is shown in this tutorial . To download standalone version go to download section.

ecFeed available as standalone tool

For all of you who were finding it too difficult to install Eclipse just to try out ecFeed there is good news: you do not need to do it anymore. Our flagship tool is now available as standalone application for Windows, Linux and MacOs. It is as good as Eclipse plugin, but misses the integration with Java code.

You can download it from the download section. The basic usage is explained in the tutorial.
