Application Development Acceleration for CA Gen
QAT Global doesn’t do any development projects in Gen without using patterns and QAT Wizard. You will see productivity increase 8-15+ times* where patterns are used in your development activities using QAT Wizard. Imagine the cost savings and benefits you could gain by reducing your new development time from 2 weeks to 20 minutes. Sound too good to be true? It’s not. QAT Wizard will drastically reduce your development time and produce code that precisely meets your coding and view standards.
QAT Wizard is a plug-in for CA Gen that dramatically accelerates the application development process. First, the Wizard plug-in itself is a sophisticated plug-in for CA Gen that expertly copies and customizes Gen code according to a custom interview. The second part is the actual pattern model that gets copied and customized by the Wizard. The newest releases focus on the automation, tools and documentation required for customers to author their own standard patterns and corresponding Wizard Interviews. The pattern model provided by QAT Global is still definitely the best starting point, but the customer is now able to create entirely new patterns and associated interviews for the Wizard. All code and view standards can be applied to the Pattern model and interviews can be created for existing models with any code and view standard.
Other QAT Wizard Components:
In order to automate the logic to enable the patterns to retrieve these current settings (i.e. Enabled Wizard Features) so the test can execute as if those features were selected during the Wizard, we created a plug-in that generates this specialized Wizard Feature action diagram logic into the pattern procedures and action blocks automatically.
Between the new automated test menu and the new plug-in to generate the Wizard Feature logic, we’ve greatly simplified the task of developing and testing patterns for QAT Wizard. The new pattern test menu and code generator can now be launched directly from the QAT Wizard control panel.
WITHOUT QUESTION…. Developers are more productive across multiple applications when they are written with QAT’s Wizard.
Full Client Control — That’s the new theme for QAT Wizard
The newest release of the Wizards, adds valuable new features to provide Full Client Control. While past releases focused on the features and options within the QAT pattern model, the release focuses on allowing the client to take full control over the pattern model and the associated Wizard Interviews that control the Wizard. The pattern model provided by QAT Global will still be a good starting point, but the client will now be able to create entirely new patterns and associated interviews for the Wizard. All code and view standards can be applied to the QAT Pattern model or interviews can be created for existing models with any code and view standard.
