Validation and Virtualization of SAP Enterprise SOA Applications with iTKO LISA
While SOA promises business agility and reuse value, it also adds IT risk due to SOA landscape complexity. How can companies do functional and performance testing to cover SOA? Replicating full test landscapes for development and QA activities can be expensive and difficult. Services might not be fully developed or might be owned by external providers. iTKO's LISA solution allows to test incomplete component landscapes or even just individual components by simulating the full environment around them. In SAP's Co-Innovation Lab, iTKO and SAP engaged in joint testing against LISA's Virtual Services as a service provider as well as a service consumer. Details are reported in this paper.
