Testing SOA Middleware: Automating What You Can't See
SOA projects employing Web services have multiple back-end integration points, volatile data, and no direct, visible user interface. Together, these factors make SOA applications complicated to test. Most companies opt for indirect manual testing because they see no other option. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Using real-world case studies as examples, Jon Howarth reveals step-by-step the data driven model Wells Fargo employs to automate its SOA regression testing. Learn about the problems their QA groups encountered and the solution that drove down costs and cycle times while increasing quality. Find out how to staff and train your team to support the solution and see example metrics to measure its effectiveness. Learn how to combine vendor tools to optimize your SOA automated testing into an integrated test framework.
