Get Started Page

This page provides links to several common procedures you perform in Service Virtualization.

UI Element Description
Learn Existing Service

Enables you to virtualize an existing service and learn its behavior.

Creates new virtualization project and a virtual service, and then places the new service in Learning mode.

For user interface details, see Virtual Service Editor.

Design Virtual Service

Enables you to design a virtual service and define its behavior.

Creates new virtualization project and a virtual service, and opens the Data Model Editor.

For user interface details, see Data Model Editor.

Discover Services

Enables you to discover SOAP services suitable for virtualization in your application under test.

Creates a new virtualization project, and opens the Service Discovery dialog box, enabling you to find all services used by an application.

For user interface details, see Service Discovery Dialog Box.

Note: See also HTTP Service Discovery for creating REST services.

Data Driven Simulation

Enables you to virtualize a service and define its behavior using data from an external source.

Creates a new virtualization project and a virtual service with an external data rule, and then opens the Data Model Editor.

For user interface details, see Data Model Editor.

Composite Application Testing

Enables you to describe the topology of a composite application, and virtualize services with limited access.

Creates a new virtualization project and a topology, and opens the Topology editor.

For user interface details, see Topology Editor.

Service Administration

Enables you to view all services from configured servers, without opening individual projects.

For user interface details, see Service Administration.

Sample Projects Page

Service Virtualization application demos are installed as an option during the Service Virtualization Designer installation process. Each sample project has an accompanying Readme file in PDF format, which provides additional information on working with the sample project. The sample project folders are located, by default, in <Your Documents folder>\HPE Service Virtualization\Demos.

The following demos are included:

UI Element Description
Claim JDBC Demo This demo shows a composite application consisting of JDBC services.
Claim Processing Demo This demo shows the simulation of a backend SOAP service with limited accessibility in a simple composite application. The service can optionally use HTTP authentication (see demo readme).
Claim Processing REST Demo This demo shows a composite application consisting of 2 REST services using JSON and XML data formats.
Claim Processing Faults Demo The simulation of a backend SOAP service with limited accessibility in a simple composite application. The simulated service returns either regular response or one of 3 different SOAP faults.
Claim Processing Security Demo This demo shows a composite application consisting of 2 SOAP services. It allows demonstrating how to record and simulate the behavior of one of the SOAP services. Both services authenticate each other using X509 certificates.
Claim Processing Standalone Server Demo This demo shows a composite application consisting of 2 SOAP services. It allows demonstrating how to record and simulate the behavior of one of the SOAP services on a standalone server.
Claim Approval JMS Demo This demo shows a composite application consisting of 3 SOAP services. It allows demonstrating how to record and simulate the behavior of two SOAP services. Demo is similar to the Claim processing service simulation demo. One XML over JMS service (TIBCO EMS approval service) has been added to the topology here and is being simulated, too.
Claim Approval MS MQ Demo This demo shows a composite application consisting of 3 SOAP services. It allows demonstrating how to record and simulate the behavior of two SOAP services. The demo is similar to the Claim Processing service virtualization demo. One XML over MS MQ service (MS MQ approval service) has been added to the topology here and is being simulated, too.
Claim Approval WebSphere MQ Demo This demo shows a composite application consisting of 3 SOAP services. It allows demonstrating how to record and simulate the behavior of two SOAP services. The demo is similar to the Claim Processing service virtualization demo. One XML over WebSphere MQ service (WebSphere MQ approval service) has been added to the topology here, and is being simulated, too.
IBM IMS Transaction Manager Phonebook Demo This demo shows virtualization of the Phonebook IMS Transaction Manager application. The client is using IBM IMS Connect API to communicate with IMS TM over TCP/IP.
Request Tracking Service Activity Demo This demo shows a composite application consisting of 4 SOAP services. It allows demonstrating how to record and simulate the behavior of two SOAP services. In addition, activity can be demonstrated by calling the third SOAP service from a simulated service.
SAP IDoc Demo This demo shows the virtualization of a service that uses the SAP IDoc protocol. It enables you to record and simulate asynchronous IDoc message transfer.
SAP RFC Demo This demo shows the virtualization of a service that uses the SAP RFC protocol. It enables you to record and simulate a remote-enabled RFC function module.
ShoppingCart - No Sessions Demo This demo shows virtualization of stateful shopping cart service, where only one client is using the stateful service.
ShoppingCart - Sessions by Clients Demo

This demo shows virtualization of stateful shopping cart service, where multiple concurrent clients are using the stateful service and private session is generated for each client.

ShoppingCart - Sessions by Orders Demo

This demo shows virtualization of stateful shopping cart service, where multiple concurrent clients are using the stateful service and sessions are generated per each shopping order. The checkout operation finishing shopping order destroys the client session (the next operation creates a new one).

Test Data Management - Import Data Demo This demo shows the virtualization of a backend SOAP service with simulation data imported from an external data file.
Test Data Management - Export Data Demo This demo shows the virtualization of a backend SOAP service with the export of learned data to an external data file.
