New Version of Parasoft SOAtest, Virtualize, and Continuous Testing Platform Released
March 14, 2018

Parasoft released new versions of its functional solutions for microservices,

Parasoft SOAtest, an API/web/mobile/database testing solution, provides a simplified approach to testing microservices, with new workflows and protocol support.

Parasoft Virtualize, a service virtualization solution, has been bolstered with new technology to help isolate individual components and stabilize test environments.

In Parasoft's latest software releases, Parasoft has continued to develop solutions to foster the collaboration required between development and testing teams in highly complex architectures. Specifically, core components of SOAtest, Virtualize, and the Continuous Testing Platform have been enhanced to meet the challenges of microservices, with new features and capabilities such as:

- New support for Apache Kafka:Recognized as one of the most important protocols for microservices, Parasoft SOAtest now supports Kafka for both initiating (push) and listening to (pull) events. This supplements support for existing microservice specific protocols, RabbitMQ, protobuff, HTTP, REST, and more.

- Ability to deploy API testing in dynamic ecosystems: Teams can now easily integrate API testing as part of existing CI/CD processes using the new highly-deployable SOAtest executable, which can be deployed on-demand as a step in CI builds, enabling teams to perform test execution in disposable environments as a part of the accelerated delivery process.

- A simplified approach to proxy creation: With a new workflow to simplify the endpoint discovery process, Parasoft Virtualize teams can now more efficiently simulate services in a federated or sandbox team structure without having to disrupt core system configuration.

- A mechanism for collaboration and correlation: Using the Parasoft Continuous Testing Platform, teams can visualize their microservices environment. By enabling users to associate test artifacts with each component, that can be shared across development and test teams, the Continuous Testing Platform provides a single point of alignment for test configurations.

"Microservices enable the speed and flexibility required to support many of today's agile development projects – but without leveraging a testing solution that's built specifically to address the unique challenges of microservice testing, QA won't be able to keep pace with development and the whole software delivery process will slow down," explained Chris Colosimo, Sr. Product Manager for Functional Test Automation at Parasoft. "At Parasoft, we continue to innovate to provide technologies and processes that empower testing teams to open the fast lane to successful microservice adoption."
