HP Service Virtualization 2.3 - Updated with Broader Palette of Test Options

Service virtualization is now a requisite for service-based architectures and it is increasingly becoming a tech trend. Service virtualization is widely preferred because it allows development and testing professionals to access system components in order to execute an Application Under Test. Service virtualization helps lessen the dependency constraints on development and testing teams. The only cliché with service virtualization is the high costs associated with the upgrade of existing networks. To address this issue, many tech companies are coming up with radical solutions and services. One such cost-effective IT performance software suite is HP Service Virtualization.

HP’s powerful Service Virtualization software assists software testing and development teams by virtualizing services physically and in the cloud. HP’s Service Virtualization enables early functional testing and parallel development, thus eliminating longer wait times and delayed delivery times. The service virtualization software minimizes the need to access constrained business critical infrastructures for testing. Some of the other benefits of the software suite are: reduced downtime risks, faster release cycles, decreased third-party costs, and minimized security risks. HP’s Service Virtualization software directly competes with the virtualization software of IBM, Parasoft and CA Technologies. 
The first version of the HP Service Virtualization software was released early in 2012 and many customers claimed that the software lacked a number of needed features. In order to further optimize the benefits and features of its service virtualization software, HP launched an updated version 2.3 in December 2012. The updated 2.3 version will feature an extensive palette of options, which aid developers test their modules. The updated Service Virtualization 2.3 software suite has all the features of the critically-acclaimed JDBC. It can also simulate the applications running in a particular network. The new version when combined with HP’s Application Lifecycle Management software provides added benefits and advantages. 
The highlight aspect of service virtualization is that it simulates the functionalities of external elements that software under development relies on. This helps developers understand and fully test a code and its operation in an actual production environment. On simulating how third-party applications operate in real-time conditions, service virtualization software eliminate the want for applications to connect to external elements, which can be costly or at times impossible in a reclusive test environment. Service Virtualization2.3 can simulate a range of applications that are based on REST, XML, mainframe services, and LDAP. 
Rendered with JDBC connectivity, the new version can now simulate enterprise JDBC calls. The major issue with the previous 2.0 version was that it could not communicate with existing JDBC databases independently. The framework allows customers to create an extensible protocol for virtualization, based on the application build necessities. Service Virtualization 2.3 extends the support to applications using IBM WebSphere MQ. This is a major upgrade from the Version 2.0. HP advices users to use Service Virtualization 2.3 along with the HP’s Application Lifecycle Management software in order enjoy maximum benefits.

In conclusion, the updated software version 2.3 further bolsters HP’s competence in the service virtualization space.
