Why End-to-End testing for integration is essential

Posted in Software testing by testing in London on June 14, 2007

From Sys Con

We expect a lot from SOA. We want business agility to support growth, attention to customers and efficient, collaborative operations. But you can’t expect what you don’t inspect. Composite applications that are constantly changing call for a new testing paradigm to assure that business processes will work as expected over the complex, heterogeneous environments of multiple protocols and transports.

We need visibility across ESBs, across the application life cycle and across the producer-consumer community. Agility demands automation for speed and reusability. It also requires testing functions unique to integration – which is why this is a new investment for most organizations. The risk of not becoming more agile for business results is part of the drive to make quality assurance key in any SOA initiative. Hear real-world examples of what automated end-to-end testing delivers today to several Fortune 500 companies.
