What is service virtualization?

Testing environments are often expensive and can have limited availability. For example, some of the components might not be available, others might require payment, and some others might already be in use. Service virtualization addresses this problem by providing a substitute for the parts that are missing. Service Virtualization tools are available in three versions, depending on your needs.


Improve both software quality and time to market with these tips and tricks.

Read Service Virtualization for Dummies for tips about how service virtualization can improve your software quality efforts.

What is Rational Test Virtualization Server?

Use Rational Test Virtualization Server with Rational Integration Tester to virtualize (or stub out) an application or database, or just part of an application or database, thereby removing application test dependencies and reducing setup time and infrastructure costs.

Rational Test Virtualization Server gives you a centralized repository for your virtual services so that they can be deployed and shared.

Discover service virtualization.

Marcia Kaufman, Principal Analyst and COO, Hurwitz and Associates, offers viewers a brief introduction to Service Virtualization and how it can help teams test earlier and at a much lower cost to accelerate delivery of higher quality software.

Virtualize multiple behaviors in parallel

Users of Rational Test Virtualization Server can configure their test environment to have multiple variants of a stub running simultaneously. These variants make it possible to run multiple test cases in parallel where there are multiple instances of the system under test available. Variants also make it possible for two components of a composite system to receive different responses from the same service interface.

Rational Integration Tester with Service Virtualization

What is Rational Integration Tester?

Rational Integration Tester helps you to create, modify, and run these integration tests, and performance tests, against the integration interfaces. You can build tests by recording existing system behaviors or from requirements, by specifying the data to send and to expect in return. You can also create virtual services to remove test dependencies and enable earlier testing. You can then build these techniques into a continuous delivery pipeline, thus ensuring each component is tested fully before delivery.

Record a simple test, play it back and view the results.

Using Rational Integration Tester, you can automate the testing of services and APIs without the need for scripts. Using the Add Numbers sample project, learn how to record a simple test, play it back and view the results.

Virtualize a message-based service.

When you virtualize a service, you replace it with a construct called a stub that can respond to a system under test in the same way that live service could. Situations where you might use a virtual service include, the connection requires a fee, the connection is unreliable, the service is not functional, simple or deterministic responses, and error scenarios. Using Rational Integration Tester, you can virtualize a message-based service.

Webinar: Wed, Mar 7, 2018 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST- Continuous Testing for Dummies – What Does it Really Mean?

You may have heard the term “continuous testing” and thought it was just a DevOps flavor of the month. Or, you might think it isn’t part of DevOps or isn’t for cloud-based applications. Continuous testing means adopting the right set of automated tests along with service virtualization, which allows the team to simulate missing dependencies,...
