We are excited to announce the release of TestBox version 3.0.0. To install just use CommandBox: install testbox --saveDev or to update your TestBox installation update testbox. So let's explore this release

What's New With 3.0.0

TestBox 3.0.0 is a major release. It has compatibility changes that you should be aware and lots of good feaures!


The major compatibility issues are the engine support removals:

  • Lucee 4.5 Support Dropped
  • Adobe ColdFusion 10 Dropped


It is easy to update, just type update testbox and you are done!

Major Features

The most notable features of this release can be found below.

Code Coverage

This has been fully documented and you can find much more information in the code coverage section.

Static Test Visualizer

The static test visualizer is basically the simple reporter but works in offline mode. This means that it will read a static TestBox results json file and create the report for it in the browser. This is incredibly useful for CI integrations and representing any TestBox results json file visually.


You will find the analyzer under /test-visualizer in the root of the TestBox installation.

  + index.html (visualizer)
  + test-results.json (sample test results)

Running It

To run it all you need to do is put alongside of it a test-results.json file and then run the index.html and voila! Test Results Visualized!
