Hi Kumar. You mentioned that you have also used rational integration tester. Can you please tell me which features of LISA are better than RIT?

Hello Imran,
There are various features where I found CA Service Virtualization (LISA) to be better as compared to RIT (this doesn't mean RIT is not good). Here are several of the reasons:

- Virtual Services Creation
- Messages Recording
- Inbuilt functions
- Various Parser
- Virtual Services performance
- ACL
- CA Service Virtualization (LISA) server and VS tracking
- Wide range protocols support etc.

I am guessing that you had some specific requirements that LISA fulfilled because many users would provide the same, very general list, in favour of RIT.
It would be very interesting to hear a few more details.
