WASHINGTON, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Agile 2007 conference — SolutionsIQ Inc., a leading provider of information technology services, consulting and staffing, today announced the launch of StoryTestIQ (STIQ) 2.0, an open source testing tool designed to create executable requirements for Agile software development projects. As a leading provider of Agile based software development services, STIQ complements the company's service offerings and is now available to developers for broader use.

StoryTestIQ was developed based on two other open source testing tools, Selenium and FitNesse, combining the web browser-based testing facilities and command language of Selenium with the wiki-based editing and pluggable FIT fixture loading of FitNesse. STIQ 2.0 advances testing beyond user-interface scripting with new features including domain-specific language support, enabling increased productivity, and better team-to-client collaboration.

As part of the SolutionsIQ mantra "Build Integrity In," and a dedication to Test Driven Development, StoryTestIQ is uniquely designed for cross-functional teams that are developing web applications for enterprise customers. With STIQ, developers have a definitive and executable view of the requirements for a specific iteration. StoryTestIQ can be used to record customer needs and negotiate acceptance criteria before a single line of code is developed. StoryTestIQ also can be used by traditional development teams to rapidly create acceptance and functional tests.

"STIQ supports an Agile project team by extending the value of Selenium and FitNesse and making it much easier for developers to collaborate with customers and realize more fully the promise of requirements driven development. We are pleased to find a way to give back to the open source community from which we, and the rest of our industry, derive so much benefit," said Charles Rudd, president and CEO of SolutionsIQ.

StoryTestIQ is a free, downloadable tool available online by visiting (http://storytestiq.sourceforge.net/gettingstarted.html)
