ISO 8583 support

This Service Virtualization beta feature introduces support for the ISO 8583 protocol, the messaging system used for card based electronic transactions.

Service Virtualization supports ISO 8583 indirectly, by converting messages into XML using the jPOS server, an open source implementation of the international ISO 8583 standard.

Service Virtualization provides an external extension based on jPOS that works with an XML virtual service. The extension is located in the Service Virtualization Tools folder. By default:

  • Designer: C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Service Virtualization Designer\Tools\Iso8583
  • Server: C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Service Virtualization Server\Tools\Iso8583

For details on configuring jPOS to work with Service Virtualization, see the step by step instructions in ISO 8583 jPOS bridge configuration.
