The Rational Test team are pleased to announce the general availability of Rational Test Workbench 9.5.
There are core objectives we in the Rational Test team work to advance with every release - technology coverage, simplicity and building an open ecosystem. Rational Test Workbench 9.5 delivers on these objectives across the board and brings with it something entirely new for the team - the technical preview of the first major release of our new platform; but more on that later.

It is sometimes useful for a tester to have different types of tests run sequentially. For example, a tester might want to delete certain items from the application database with an API invocation before running a performance or functional test. A compound test in HCL OneTest is meant for such requirements. In such cases, it is required to pass in information to the API test from the compound test level. This blog shows how to run a compound test containing API tests from HCL OneTest Performance. This blog also provides the steps to pass variables defined in HCL OneTest Performance as arguments to the API tests.
A simple, yet powerful reporting infrastructure is one of the most sought after features from an enterprise grade performance testing tool. Performance analysts rely on reports for visualizing statistical counters that quantify application performance to detect problems.
A tag in Integration Tester is a means of storing a single value for substitution in a test case. A list tag is similar, however it contains multiple values. List tags can be created in a number of ways, such as, by using the Iterate Test Data action, Lookup Test Data action, ECMA script, and by tagging a repeating element from a response. In this blog, we will discuss list tags and how to apply them to a repeating element in Integration Tester.
Starting with version 18.104.22.168, you can publish test suite reports from Integration Tester to Test Control Panel, and then use the Unified Reporting dashboard to access the published reports. You can also publish reports for integration tests scheduled from Performance Tester.
We have recently updated our Testing Portfolio to version 22.214.171.124. This release contains a number of fixes and enhancements. We’ve provided a summary below; if you’re interested in finding out more, please take a look at our release notes:

Performance Tester has an optional SOA extension that can be used for service testing. However, Performance Tester does not include web service examples that can be used to learn the service testing functionality. So, if we have Test Control Panel installed, we can use its sample web services in Performance Tester. This is a great learning aid and provides some additional integration points between the two products.
Test Workbench 9.1.1-9.2 supports Google Chrome up to version 62 (with future fix packs). However, there have been users using higher versions of Google Chrome successfully after a driver update.
