Rational® Test Virtualization Server overview
Rational® Test Virtualization Server is software that is used for creating, maintaining, publishing, and running message-based stubs and database stubs.
Installing the agent software
To use the capabilities of IBM® Rational® Test Virtualization Server, you must install the IBM Rational Integration Tester Agent in service virtualization mode, and optionally you can install the IBM Rational Performance Tester Agent for performance testing.
License management
As a purchaser of an IBM® Rational® software product, you can choose from the different types of product licenses that you can deploy to use the product.
Configuring Rational® Integration Tester Agent
After you install Rational® Integration Tester Agent, you must edit or modify the attributes in the Agent.config file for the features that you want to test by using the agent. You need to configure the libraries to enable testing the SUT based on certain technologies and also set up the required proxies for enabling testing.
Troubleshooting: Rational® Integration Tester Agent
You can use workarounds to common problems that you might encounter when you install and run the Rational® Integration Tester Agent.
Configuring Rational® Integration Tester
You might want to configure applications to use the HTTP/TCP proxy or set up to use the JDBC proxy that you installed. This section lists all such topics.
Administering Rational® Test Control Panel
IBM® Rational® Test Control Panel is a server-based web application providing a central repository for virtualized services. The Rational Test Control Panel allows you to use virtual services published with Rational Integration Tester to create, share, and deploy virtualized test environments in IBM Rational Test Virtualization Server.
This guide describes the tasks that you can perform for using virtual services or stubs to simulate parts of an environment if the real services are not yet available or because they are difficult or expensive to use. This guide is intended for Integration Testers.
Overview
Rational® Test Virtualization Server is software that is used for creating, maintaining, publishing, and running message-based stubs and database stubs.
