Using interactive system diagrams in the Continuous Testing Platform’s Environment Manager module, you can layout views of your system under test and associate live end-points and virtual assets to components in the test environment. This provides immediate visibility into the state of your test environment and the ability to dynamically reconfigure it to meet specific testing requirements.
Test Environment Configuration
To effectively execute multiple test scenarios, you need to continuously reconfigure your test environment (test data, service virtualization artifacts etc), which ordinarily takes a lot of time. With the Continuous Testing Platform’s intuitive Environment Manager interface, you can control the components of your system and dynamically reconfigure your test environment in seconds.
Environment Health Checks
When there's a problem in the test environment, it can be difficult to understand when it occurs or its impact on the application. With automated end-point verification and comprehensive health checks powered by Parasoft SOAtest, the Continuous Testing Platform provides you with instant visibility into the health of the complete test environment.
Consistency of Test Results
Executing tests without understanding the context of the test environment is only half the story. Without knowing the configuration and state of your test dependencies, you're unable to determine the accuracy of your test results. The Environment Manager allows you to associate your tests with a preconfigured state of the test environment, to ensure consistency of test results.
Dynamic Test Environments
Create environment templates that combine test scenarios, test data, and virtual services. Then you can deploy the exact test environment you need and integrate it into your CI infrastructure, to dynamically deploy and destroy disposable test environments as a part of your Continuous Delivery pipeline.
