Parasoft and AmberPoint Announce Compliant SOA Applications
SOA Companies Bridge the Gaps Between Development, QA and Operations to Improve the Quality of System Components

Parasoft and AmberPoint announced closed-loop integration between their SOA quality and runtime governance solutions. Their joint solution brings benefits to organizations by automating test suite generation, improving the accuracy of quality processes, raising team collaboration and reducing resolution times for complex and evolving Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) systems.

"Because SOA implementations involve increasingly distributed and complex systems, it becomes more challenging to create the sophisticated testing scenarios required for quality assurance across the service lifecycle," said Jason Bloomberg, Managing Partner, ZapThink. "These challenges threaten to extend testing lifecycles and reduce agility, but more importantly, they jeopardize system security and reliability. The integration between AmberPoint and Parasoft addresses these issues, giving organizations an automated way to generate realistic, true-to-production scenarios for exercising their services."

Bridging the Gap between Development, QA and Operations
One of the greatest challenges of SOA quality is how to validate realistic transactions involving distributed services that may not be available for testing. Consider the example of a services-based account provisioning system that’s losing orders. To solve this problem, the development team has to test the fixed application in a safe sandbox that replicates the transaction flows of the production environment—or risk breaking the system upon redeploying the application.

The integrated Parasoft-AmberPoint solution helps teams overcome this challenge by automatically emulating—or virtualizing—services based on real-world historical data collected from the runtime environment. With this baseline established, teams can exercise distributed services in context—without impacting partners’ normal business transactions.

  • Bases tests on running reality, not just synthetic messages
  • Comprehensive runtime data on individual services as well as end-to-end transactions
  • Detects the impact of errant changes before they affect production environments
  • Significantly reduces manual steps by automating baseline collection and test suite generation
  • Enables organizations to censor sensitive production data to comply with Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA and other industry regulations

Customer Benefits:

  • Improves the accuracy of quality processes
  • Improves team collaboration
  • Reduces the testing lifecycle and resolution times
  • Facilitates reliable, compliant SOA applications

“Our closed-loop integration with AmberPoint is a big step forward,” said Wayne Ariola, Vice President of Business Development at Parasoft. “Bringing real-world historical data into the quality realm enables the development and QA not only makes testing more realistic, thereby improving the reliability of the applications, it also significantly shortens the testing lifecycle.”
