Has anyone done a comparative study of CA iTKO LISA vs. HP Service test? If yes, can you please share your results and/or report. 

What needs to be considered when comparing them?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, HP's product in this domain is called, HP Service Virtualization

Also, I’d like to add that “HP Service test” mentioned below is a tool for functional integration (API) testing, but not for Service Virtualization. Please, pay attention to it.

Thank you.

HP Service Test and CA Lisa are not comparable products.

HP Service Test is comparable to Soap UI- create scripts/tests that drive data to a web service.

HP Service Test is one of three products in the HP Unified Functional Testing Suite: what used to be Quick Test Professional, Service Test and Service Test Manager.

Unfortunately, I don’t have experience in CA Lisa SV.
However, I have evaluated HP SV and have an opinion about it – I can share my thoughts if you need, but I don’t think that it will help you to answer the question.

“What needs to be considered when comparing them?”

Of course a lot is depends on your necessities, but for the most of cases it doesn’t matter what tools you are going to compare – I believe that all the needs are the same because of the domain area (SV in this case).

- Number of Protocols supported

- Record and Reproduce possibility

- Create virtual services from scratch

- Easiness of installing, configuring and using

- Extended possibilities for creation more complex virtual endpoints (db support, data stores, team using, etc.)

- Other deeper criteria
Thank you.
