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?
