As clients modernize their applications and their associated delivery processes one thing we are hearing from them clearly is that their need to validate these applications under load is a top priority. In order to meet this demand we have been working closely with IBM’s cloud delivery teams to build a solution which enables users to scale their existing performance test capabilities from local PCs, to Cloud hosted and Hybrid scenarios.
You asked us, what solutions do we offer across the testing landscape to accelerate your software testing efforts? Before we answer that, let’s step back and provide a picture of today’s software testing challenges.
To achieve the value of both hybrid cloud and on-premise applications that we deploy, we know that we must automate software testing and test earlier to reduce the risk of deploying poor quality applications into production.
We know that many teams adopting a DevOps approach to software development are often tripped up by a variety of bottlenecks that prevent them from reaching maximum efficiency. Some of these bottlenecks are ineffective collaboration, manual deployments, incomplete test labs, lack of test automation, and slow hand-offs.
To help we have put together several roundtable and networking events. This is a chance for you to talk about DevOps approaches with experts from IBM, partners, and customers. Our goal is to share how you can remove these bottlenecks and deliver innovation continuously.
In this blog, we will look at how to create a simple SWIFT messaging project with Integration Tester. This could be useful when investigating the technology for a proof-of-concept, or for learning the Integration Tester product.
SWIFT is a banking and financial messaging exchange standard used by over 11,000 institutions worldwide. Please consult the main Integration Tester documentation which has further details, including specific message configuration.
Daily builds need daily testing. In continuous engineering, you develop many releases. You need to test all these releases. Continuous engineering requires continuous testing.
Performance is an important aspect of your application. So, you want to test the performance. Low-intensity performance testing could be useful for you. In low-intensity Performance Tester, you sample only the response times.
If you test daily, you want to see which build shows a different performance. Performance Tester provides a report that provides visual insight.
Applications nowadays have different ways to approach. For example, your application comes in the following flavors.
