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.

The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
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...

MacVittie has extensive development and technical architecture experience in both high-tech and enterprise organizations, in addition to network and systems administration expertise. Prior to joining F5, MacVittie was an award-winning technology editor at Network Computing Magazine where she evaluated and tested application-focused technologies including app secu...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
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...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
