iTKO Releases LISA 3 For Complete SOA Testing

Comprehensive Platform For Testing And Monitoring Of The Supporting SOA Layers Behind Them

iTKO announced the release of iTKO LISA 3 Complete SOA Testing Platform. LISA 3, is a proven suite with the breadth to test SOA workflows across every component type and development phase, the company says.

LISA 3 expands on the concept of distributed testing for every development phase, from functional and unit testing, to regression, load and performance testing, to offer a comprehensive platform for deep testing and monitoring of dynamic Web applications and all of the supporting SOA layers behind them.

According to iTKO, by maintaining the context of an SOA workflow across multiple tiers and development phases, software developers and QA teams can expedite their testing times by up to 80 percent, since there's no need to code or re-script LISA test cases every time the target software changes.

iTKO's development toward LISA 3 began almost two years ago as the company recognized the dramatic migration of IT budgets toward SOA. Its goal was to create a unified system that helped developers and quality assurance teams to quickly and accurately test within multiple technology layers.

iTKO LISA 3 includes significant features, such as:

* Testing of every distributed technology. LISA 3 delivers integrated, mature testing to more SOA components than any other combination of tools on the market. This includes out-of-the-box testing of current standards of Web apps, Web services (WSDL/SOAP), J2EE/EJB, .NET, JMS, JDBS databases, RMI, Java/POJOs, file systems and more.

* Expansion of front-end test capture and interaction capabilities to complement middle-tier testing, for systems that may rely on rich browser functionality within AJAX, Swing, DOM/Javascript, and other session-persistence and presentation protocols.

* An expanded ability to get the entire team involved in continuous quality rather than coding. LISA helps every member of the team collaborate on tests using an intuitive graphical business workflow model during the development process, including developers, quality assurance teams, business analysts, IT performance experts and customer support.
Test case durability. LISA 3 test cases can be as dynamic as the apps they test, maintaining context against inevitable changes in the SOA, and can be reused and extended, creating efficiency and ensuring that business requirements are met.

* LISA Extensibility Frameworks. Developers can essentially teach LISA to talk to their applications, and/or create a "test harness" teach their custom applications to report to LISA. By automating the process a single time, deeper diagnostics from most SOA components can be continually monitored.
