Much of the infrastructure underpinning modern systems is message-driven. Applications are highly interdependent and are often not screen-based, so the traditional linear GUI-based approach to testing will not work. Typical challenges in testing message-based applications include:

  • How can I ensure that the plethora of interconnected systems delivering service to my customers function and scale together?
  • How can I test a new application when it interacts with so many internal and external systems?
  • How can I test my new component while systems it needs to interact with are still in development?
  • How can I reduce the cost of provisioning test environments for external systems?

At StarBase we understand that solutions to the above can be daunting, but with careful planning we can provide guidance to help find a solution for you. Have a look at our SOA Functional Testing page to see what we can provide, as well as checking out the relevant documents in our what we know section.
