As application development trends toward more composite, service-oriented architecture approaches, it is becoming more and more challenging to test these applications. Any access limitations, unavailability of dependent services and/or data sources can delay projects and testing timelines. These challenges are amplified in agile environments where release cycles are compressed.

Other challenges of testing composite applications:

  1. Dependent Service still under development and not ready
  2. Service Vendor may not allow performance testing
  3. Dependent service is pay-per-use, therefore expensive to test against
  4. Shared services only available for testing only in limited capacity at off-peak hours
  5. Security restrictions imposed by the service vendor
  6. Dependency on firewall ports to access the service

The good news is that service virtualization technologies like HP Service Virtualization can enable you to address these challenges easily.

Benefits of Service Virtualization

Faster Release Cycles:  Speeds development and testing cycles by removing delays due to restricted access or the overhead of creating customized stubs.

Reduce Infrastructure:  A virtualized environment can eliminate the need of standing up dedicated service infrastructures by virtualizing a wide range of services from a single service virtualization setup.

Decreased Third-party Access Expenses:  For applications that rely on pay-per-use services, the cost can be significantly reduced or completely eliminated in testing cycles by using simulated instances of those components.

Reduce Cost:  Test earlier in the cycle or sprint, without the necessity of having the end-system ready. As a result, defects can be identified earlier when they are cheaper and quicker to fix.

Improve Quality:  A virtualized service environment enables testers to increase use case coverage and provides the ability to test scenarios which are impossible to test otherwise.
