Parasoft's SOA Quality Solution

Parasoft Announces Support for Multiple Registries to Meet Quality Standards

Parasoft announced native support for multiple commercial registries with Parasoft’s SOA Quality Solution. This integration enables teams to automatically execute quality a workflow and correlate quality data in context of a SOA Governance initiative.

Parasoft’s SOA Quality Solution allows teams to automatically extract the information needed to create tests for design and development policies, such as standards, compliance, security and best practices for Web services assets as they are defined in a registry. Teams can select a service asset and verify the associated policies, thereby ensuring interoperability and consistency.

"The ability to ensure that service and SOA design policies are properly and consistently addressed across the service development lifecycle is critical," said Sandra Rogers, program director for SOA, Web Services, and Integration research at IDC. "The ability to automatically test for adherence to certain policies when services are created or changed can better ensure ongoing compliance throughout the environment." Melinda Ballou, IDC's program director for Application Lifecycle Management research indicates that, "QA vendors are evolving their solutions with more focused test creation facilities for services and SOA-based applications. It is also important that they support more integrated testing capabilities across multiple phases of the more holistic SDLC."

Parasoft empowers organizations to deliver better business applications faster. We achieve this by enabling quality as a continuous process across the SDLC—not just QA. Parasoft solutions provide a foundation for producing solid functional components by exposing structural errors and preventing entire classes of errors.

Teams will be alerted when modifications impact the application, reducing the risk of change. Parasoft’s SOA solution provides an automated infrastructure that enables quality as a continuous process, allowing teams to reap the full benefits of your SOA initiative.

Users of services registries benefit from Parasoft’s SOA Quality solution support for standards. The Parasoft SOA Quality solution is capable of querying any UDDI registry from vendors such as, IBM, HP and Microsoft. Furthermore, Parasoft has created an even tighter integration with BEA's AquaLogic Enterprise Repository (ALER) and Software AG's CentraSite technology. This enables teams to automatically generate functional test cases and WSDL verification tests at the time the services are published to the registry to ensure WSDLs are compliant to best practice and organizational policies.

For example, utilizing the CentraSite technology and the Parasoft SOA Quality solution, business partners can access the service “health report” as well as an emulated stub with test data that mocks the service interactions. This “health report” is based on jointly agreed QA standards, eliminating the finger pointing that can occur during integration activities. This process visibility facilitates continuous process improvement through the SDLC, increasing productivity and reducing cost.

Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, will discuss how to use Kubernetes to setup a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace....
SYS-CON Events announced today the Kubernetes and Google Container Engine Workshop, being held November 3, 2016, in conjunction with @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. This workshop led by Sebastian Scheele introduces participants to Kubernetes and Google Container Engine (GKE). Through a combination of instructor-led presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, students learn the key concepts and practices for deploying and maintainin...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
In his general session at 19th Cloud Expo, Manish Dixit, VP of Product and Engineering at Dice, discussed how Dice leverages data insights and tools to help both tech professionals and recruiters better understand how skills relate to each other and which skills are in high demand using interactive visualizations and salary indicator tools to maximize earning potential. Manish Dixit is VP of Product and Engineering at Dice. As the leader of the Product, Engineering and Data Sciences team at D...
DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
