General product highlights

Test Mentor - Java Edition is an automated Java component testing solution
that serves as a bridge between testers and developers, so developers and
testers can collaborate
on component testing, using test representations that they are comfortable

Java components are your business objects, which may consist of anything
from a single class to an entire framework. These objects implement rules
according to
developers' interpretation of the product requirements, which may not always
be correct. Test Mentor's approach to testing components is to exercise
component functionality in
the same way that components are intended to be used. Components whose
services are tested this way are stable and present few surprises.
