→ Service Virtualization is not for tester’s only
To deliver high quality software, all members should contribute in the process of testing. As a part of development responsibilities, programmers perform tests, and they have the same constraints as testers. Programmers may perform the testing without validating integrations. programmers will leave the integration testing for the test team, And that because some software may not be available for testing. While the integration testing is so important and shouldn’t wait to be tested later. In this situation, service virtualization can be used to take the place of missing software. It is good practice to know that service virtualization testing can be applied to various contexts, for the cost saving and how business group users know about it, and rest of development testing users know how the developer is using it for the SDLC workflow.
→ Perform Tests Continuously
Performing tests continuously enables you to discover errors that may be difficult to discover and fix in advance stages. Each stage has different problems, so you don’t want to combine all these problems to become a big problem. So this tip can help you to find problems in each stage and fix them before going on to the next stage. Moreover, it will provide high quality software in the end. It is modern practice for thinking about the bigger picture and how Secure DevOps or DevSecOps fit in your organization. Where continuous integration (CI) and continuous development (CD) tool chain seamless integration and automation help to speed up the entire workflow for the good not just for organization, but also for the various divisions, department and unit within.
Before starting with testing you should have a well identified list about what is preventing you from implementing the test. By doing this you can know what component is unavailable and thus you can use service virtualization.
