Tricentis Tosca

Test-Driven Service Virtualization

Tricentis Test-Driven Service Virtualization simulates the behavior of dependent systems that are difficult to access or configure so you can continuously test without delays.

This removes the single biggest barrier to achieving continuous testing: access to a complete test environment with all dependent systems configured with the appropriate configuration, functionality and test data.

Service Virtualization + Continuous Testing

Service Virtualization is a simulation technology that lets you automatically execute tests even when the AUT’s (Application Under Test) dependent system components cannot be properly accessed or configured for testing. By simulating these dependencies, you can ensure that your tests will encounter the appropriate dependency behavior and data each and every time that they execute.

Service virtualization is commonly used when tests need to interact with dependent system components that are:

  • Unreliable, evolving, or not yet completed
  • Beyond your scope of control
  • Not readily available for testing
  • Challenging to provision/configure for testing
  • Not feasible to use for automated regression testing

Adopt a Test-Driven Approach to Service Virtualization 

Our new approach to service virtualization places the tester at the center of service virtualization asset creation and management.

Eliminate Testing Delays

Start testing whenever the AUT is ready. Just simulate interactions with dependent components that are not yet implemented or still evolving.

Enable Continuous Testing

Stabilize access to your dependent systems so that your continuous tests execute completely, reliably and accurately– every time.

Automated Software Testing SPAR

Simulated test environments allow our testers to execute tests whenever needed, as often as needed. They no longer need to wait days or weeks for access to test environments and test data. In addition, it is easy for them to test many conditions that are difficult to produce with real test environments.

Shift Testing Left With Service Virtualization

Tricentis Tosca simulates the dependent component behavior that’s required to execute your tests. We record the messages exchanged between the AUT and its constrained dependencies— automatically learning the expected interactions by listening in on their “conversations.”

Watch the video to see how our model-based approach of messages eliminates the “maintenance trap” of conventional approaches.

Reuse Tests as Service Virtualization Scenarios

Tricentis enables rapid simulation of the exact application behavior based on the automated test cases developed in Tricentis Tosca.

Testers can leverage the same business view developed during API testing to create and manage service virtualization scenarios. It can also mimic data consumption (state-full test data) by various application components.

More Risk Coverage With Test-Driven Service Virtualization

Tricentis simulates interactions with dependent application components, that are not yet implemented or still evolving, allowing testers to get more value out of your test cases by testing performance scenarios and injecting malicious test data patterns.

This enhances the risk coverage and shifts the testing to left allowing enterprises to expose their defects in earlier development life-cycle when they are fastest, easiest, and cheapest to fix.

Effortless Message Verification and Analysis  

Complex business processes often involve thousands, if not millions, of messages. Manually checking these messages is simply not feasible.  

Tricentis eliminates manual message validation by automatically flagging messages that are improperly formed or sent in the incorrect order.

Create and Maintain Virtual Services with Ease 

Our tight integration with Tricentis Tosca connects the missing link between front-end and back-end. Teams can create instances using Tosca’s Test Data Management, allowing enterprises to run end-to-end testing with re-usable virtual services. 

If new data is available, Tosca can easily update all instances with only a click of a button.
