Good for middleware testing, not as much for front end testing.

Supports lots of middleware technologies. Good virtualization tool.

Room for Improvement

They can improve their front end testing features.

Use of Solution

6+ years

Stability Issues

We once faced issues when we moved from 4.2 to 4.7 or 5. They completely changed the UI and their is very little support for backward compatibility.

Previous Solutions

I like working with the CA Service Virtualization product, so I'll stick with it. Given a chance I would like to work on Parasoft and Green Hat as well.

Initial Setup

I've been using CA Service Virtualization for the last 6 years, I am quite happy with the performance and how it developed over the years. Unlike other tools, the set up of CA Service Virtualization is quite easy and self-explanatory.

Implementation Team

We implemented using a vendor team which was very talented.

Other Solutions Considered

Green Hat and Parasoft.

Other Advice

The features are really good in the middleware testing world. It supports lots of technologies. I would strongly recommend this tool for Automation and Virtualization. It's a good tool for QA developers.
