Service Virtualization Features

Read what people say are the most valuable features of the solutions they use.
Principal consultant at a tech vendor with 51-200 employees
The whole service virtualization concept works on integration patterns, so the service virtualization should be supporting the regular RESTful services. However, it should also support services that listen and reply to MQs, generic JMS, SAP WebMethods integration server, universal messaging, or SAP virtualization database (or whatever virtualization you have, e.g., Java virtualization). The support for these integration patterns and the ease of use to wizard-based utility is what I would consider the most important features for service virtualization platforms. View full review »

As we have used most of the MQ stub, "MQ recording" is the most useful feature. Its flexibility to configure various MQ recording methods as per the implementation and "pass through" feature. View full review »

Senior Software Architecht at a software R&D company with 51-200 employees
The ability to create virtual services and deploy them as Docker containers, and include them in our Jenkins build pipelines, is a valuable feature. It was critical for us to prevent possible elements from "unnecessarily" breaking the pipeline. If I'm pushing a particular web service through the pipeline and want that to be tested in isolation, it is a big problem if everything fails due to an irrelevant dependent service. The use of containers provided a very flexible solution. View full review »
Test Manager - DevOps at a maritime company with 5,001-10,000 employees
The most valuable features include the capability to use other program languages such as PLSQR, JAVA, .NET. This is important because whenever the tool is limited you can extend it by writing your own code. The code is not limited to a specific language, it can hold several types of coding language.

Solutions Architect at ProKarma
A couple of the most valuable features, to me, are the fact that you can have a lot of different people with different technologies use the tool, without any programming experience at all, all the way up to people who can program. And then, the more technical that you are, the more programming you have, the more you're able to customize the tool. Basically customize it to do what you want it to do. That's one thing. The other thing is, it's got probably the greatest amount of features, in terms of different technologies that you can automate and virtualize, out of any of the solutions out there. So, it really can accomplish any task that you want to do with it. View full review »

It performs as advertised. We had a number of back-end services that were not available during testing times. What this had allowed us to do is get our early life testing done while those services are not available. View full review »

Software Engineer at Cerner Corporation
You can create virtual services from a live recording or you can even take raw traffic and convert that into request/response pairs, and you can create an entire virtual service from just those simple little files, and that's super awesome when that all works out. View full review »

Architect: Service Virtualization, DevOps and Automation at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
IBM RTVS has many useful features, but support for IBM MQ over this tool is unbeatable. It has very easy and good validation techniques used for SWIFT, XSD, and WSDL validations. Another feature is where we can specify optional nodes/tags of XML or any other type of message format within the test and stub definitions. This is also unbeatable. View full review »
