"In the case of the virtualization of TCP/IP protocols for third-party terminal insurance, there was a device terminal, which was interacting with the application via the TCP/IP protocol. Most of the tools don't support that, but we were able to achieve it using Broadcom Service Virtualization."
"The most valuable features of Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence are bug hunting and OCR technology."
"The features that we like the most are the developer interface and the ability to quickly develop and deploy tests."
"It is easy to set up."
"Its scalability is good. It is useful for desktop applications, and it also uses OCR and does image recognition."
"DAI's newest release allows us to test via scripts rather than models, because we have done 95 percent of our development in functional, not through modeling. I am really happy that then we can use the controller to run scripts rather than having to translate things to models. There are lots of options."
"Everything is happening on the layout or display that is used by the user. Eggplant prompts processes, like 'click here,' or 'look for this image.' Eggplant makes it possible for QA people and BAs, working in the actual display, to check if the software is providing the right images, the right text, and the right results. They don't have to go inside the code or to the TCP/IP layer. Everything is happening at the highest level."
"The cost is an area that needs improvement. There are a couple of other tools which provide support for performance testing with the base version itself, but Broadcom needs a separate component to support virtualization for performance testing. This is a costly component."
"I would like to see standardized actions already built into Eggplant. For example, "wait eight seconds". That way, I wouldn't need to create it as an action. Right now, I have to program that wait and describe it as an action so that everybody knows it is an action that waits eight seconds... That way, somebody who is not familiar with programming processes like "if-else", or "for", or "while", would be able, from the first moment, and without programming, to put some easy-to-use, standardized, actions in place."
"Its performance and stability could be better."
"The language is too specific; it is just for Eggplant."
"The IDE could be even more full-featured. Because I was a developer, I was very spoiled by either Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio for shortcuts. For example, I was able to say "ctor" and hit Tab and it would create a template of a constructor for me... It would be great, when I want to create a new function, if there were shortcut commands like those that helped create all of the functions, or if there were shortcut features to do any of the complex plans."
"If one area could be improved, it would be some of their documentation. In particular, some of their online help and user support documentation is a little bit out of date and could be revised and updated on a more frequent basis. Other than that, I haven't really found any issues or problems."
"Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence could improve by lowering the price."
CA Service Virtualization acts as a catalyst for DevOps by simulating constrained or unavailable systems across the software development lifecycle (SDLC). This allows developers, testers and performance teams to work in parallel to accelerate app delivery, as well as to “shift-left” the app testing to improve application quality. CA Service Virtualization was previously known as LISA, the product from the ITKO acquisition.
Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence is a powerful and easy-to-use solution that gives users the ability to create and test any type of application. There is no type of technology that it cannot be used to test.
Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence gives users the power to create products that will best meet the wants and needs of the end user. The solution’s artificial intelligence and machine learning features give users the ability to predict how a new application will impact the audience that receives it. Ultimately, it ensures that the product that is being tested will best meet the requirements of those for whom it is being created.

Reviews from Real Users
Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence is an automated application testing and debugging tool that stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are the way that it enables users to test applications and the way that it enables users who are not necessarily involved in coding tests to understand the testing processes. There is a large selection of tests that can be used to assess many different aspects of the applications that are being created. Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence also makes it easy for users to follow the testing that their applications are subjected to.
PeerSpot user Jon G., a quality assurance analyst at a transportation company, writes, “What I'm also really happy about - and perhaps this isn't technically about functional testing, but it's related to it - is that DAI's newest release allows us to test via scripts rather than models. This is because we have done 95 percent of our development via functional testing and not through modeling. I am really happy that then we can use the controller to run scripts rather than having to translate things to models. There are lots of options. We are testing many mobile applications through Android Gateway, and that seems to be working great. We have not had any problems with web apps or Windows applications. We are running several scrum lines, and we've just implemented QA and, therefore, QA is important. What we're trying to do is get the ongoing suite of tests that look at things currently, and then it will be a built-on regression suite as we keep going and keep adding more and more tests. We want to improve quality before handing it off to our customers. If we have mainframe stuff, it's nothing that I've had to test or deal with.”
A business analyst at a computer software company writes, “The digital twin tool is perfect for combining the non-technical and technical sides. Someone who is not actually in the code can understand the processes that are presented by the digital twin tool. I was introduced to it with a short introduction of about one and a half hours, and I was very surprised to see something like that because I had only been working with Eggplant programming and coding. With the digital twin tool I can program something and visualize it within a module, within a process. For us, an example of such a use case is creating a new patient.”
