IBM Rational Test Workbench (formerly Green Hat Tester) simplifies and automates the task of
testing your SOA, BPM and other integration projects whether you have a TIBCO, Software AG
webMethods, Oracle, IBM, SAP or other environment. The Workbench has been created to address
all the problems inherent in testing systems that do not have graphical user interfaces.
Rational Test Workbench is an established, proven modular test automation suite specifically
designed to address the challenges of testing distributed and/or complex systems. These systems
can be legacy (e.g. files, FTP, middleware) or modern (SOA, XML, JMS, ESB, BPM, CEP,
Cloud and so on). Often these systems do not have user interfaces but where they do,
it has a UI testing module or can integrate with your existing products such as HP’s QTP.
SOA and BPM can bring many benefits, but at the same time add complexity through
dependencies, users and system availability.
The last generation of test automation products required users to write code. The tool
uses a series of configurable test steps that can be used to model any test script and
correspond more closely to the actions that a tester would take. As there is no coding,
emphasis is placed on wizards to help with operations such as test creation from
schemas and message exchange patterns, as well as repairing damaged tests.
At all times the objective is to remove manual, repetitive, time-consuming actions and
allow the tester to concentrate on value-add activities.
