We use it for the virtualization of third-party APIs for performance testing. Our second use case is related to the virtualization of TCP/IP protocols for third-party terminal insurance, which is used for insurance clients.

We mark up several APIs from web servers, JMS, and MQ Services with this solution. We use it to support our performance testing. Some of the virtual services that have been built by this solution will support somewhere around 2000 to 3000GPS perfectly.

The primary use case of this solution is for creating virtual services, creating API testing, and creating virtual data.

* By virtualization, for all dependent services, we are able to create isolated test environments. * We virtualize fragile services and deploy them with the 'Failover' mode so that we can fall back to the VS in case the real service returns an error. * We virtualize third-party paid services, as well as in-development services, to minimize costs and delays.

We use this tool to be more agile and deliver daily releases to production, shortening the development cycle.

I would give CA an eight out of ten. It could be a ten on service virtualization, but it's definitely a 6 or 7 in the application testing area. These two are combined into one product (CA DevTest), so the overall total comes to an 8. When selecting a vendor, our most important criteria is based on which areas are supported. As we are an enterprise, we have rich environments with many types of platforms and the most important requirement is that the tools will support these rich environments, protocols, technologies, and platforms. In the end, your choice depends on what goal is more important to you: services virtualization or application tests. If it's services virtualization, go for DevTest; if it's application testing, then you should think twice.

Our services are offered to all of our clients. Once they have purchased the product, we offer services and centrally configure this for others who have this feature. It's free. Instead of each and every project team buying their own products, we centrally buy it, we centrally manage the environment, and we provide it to the rest of the teams. This provides a way of cost-cutting and interacting. This solution is definitely for large enterprise companies, not suitable for a small or medium-sized company. With large enterprise companies, we can use freeware tools. There are several freeware tools available. Complex protocols are also available and can be applied only for large enterprise companies. My recommendations are that this solution is best suited for large organizations and for internally running their referral services. If you want, the requirements are simple. You can use the freeware that is available. Or, if you want to use it for a central log, then use it, develop and enhance it more. The development technicians will assist you if you want to run this securely as a centralized enterprise-level solution. I would recommend this solution for large organizations. Nonetheless, they have to make a lot of improvements. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
