With the need for speed driving continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous release, organizations across industries are experiencing a rising rate of regressions, integration errors, and other defects. Accelerated delivery is great—unless you end up placing the business at risk because your testing efforts just can't keep pace. Watch the on-demand How to Avoid Continuously Delivering Faulty Software webinar (co-hosted by Perforce and Parasoft) to explore best practices for reducing the risks associated with Continuous Delivery. The webinar covers: The top 4 best practices for Continuous Delivery. The role that "DevTest" practices like static analysis, unit testing, functional testing, exploratory testing, performance testing, and security testing play in a Continuous Delivery process. How to more accurately answer the core questions that different te... (more)

How to Ease API Testing Constraints

Ensuring API integrity is difficult in today's complex application cloud, on-premises and hybrid environment scenarios. In this interview with TechTarget, Parasoft solution architect manager Spencer Debrosse shares his experiences about the top API testing issues that organizations encounter and how automation and a DevOps team approach can address them. The following is an excerpt from that interview... What makes testing APIs challenging? When you're building an application, you're not just using your own APIs or your own internal applications. Instead, you have to rely on a wide... (more)

Trusting Reusable Business Components in SOA and Web Services

One of the business benefits organizations strive to achieve by implementing a service-oriented architecture (SOA) or in utilizing Web services is the opportunity to reuse business components. Asset reuse is one of the core drivers of the SOA or Web service ROI calculation. Although leveraging the service concept provides an avenue for application consolidation and reuse, these same efficiencies also introduce a distinct level of business risk. For example, in an architecture where multiple distributed applications provide a business with a specific operation, should a single appl... (more)

Who's Responsible for SOA Quality in a Service-Oriented Architecture?

Service-oriented architectures are much different than our traditional siloed applications. SOAs span multiple tiers and multiple applications, their development lifecycles are multi-staged and highly iterative, and there are multiple parties impacted by both internal and perhaps external changes to the organization. Delivering a secure, reliable, compliant SOA, given these complexities, requires a different approach to quality. In a complex system, quality measures must permeate every aspect to translate into a quality deliverable. Architecture & Interface Consistency For exampl... (more)

The Next Generation of Test Environment Management

Traditional hardware and OS virtualization technology reduce software development/testing infrastructure costs and increase access to constrained systems. Yet, it's not always feasible to leverage hardware or OS virtualization for many large systems such as mainframes and ERPs. More pointedly, configuring and maintaining the environment and data needed to support development and test efforts still requires considerable time and resources. As a result, keeping a complex staged environment in synch with today's constantly-evolving Agile projects is a time-consuming, never-ending ... (more)
