Worksoft Inc. is shipping an upgrade to its Worksoft Certify for SOA, which provides a 'scriptless' approach to testing and validating business processes for SOA. The ofering works with SAP, .NET, Java and mainframe environments.

Worksoft Certify for SOA 8.2.1 extends and simplifies testing capabilities to speed deployment and improve accuracy to business processes, the company said.

"SOA drives business value by ensuring that the IT services required to quickly respond to changing business needs are delivered in a secure and manageable way," said Bruce Johnson, CEO and President of Worksoft, in a statement. "Worksoft Certify for SOA simplifies the validation of these dynamic, composite applications by allowing WSDLs and messages to be tested in the context of the end-to-end business process they support."

In specific, Worksoft Certify for SOA 8.2.1 allows:
  • Tests to be designed and executed at the business process level to validate, in context, both the Web Services and the end-user application, covering the stack from bottom to top;
  • Simulations of both the messages and responses to allow test suites to be built and executed before producer services are even available, thereby compressing the overall SOA project lifecycle;
  • Automated identification of all changes to the XML and SOAP messages and test cases that are affected by each new revision of the service; and
  • Seamless integration into Worksoft Certify's existing repository of reports, requirements, test data and processes

    Worksoft Certify, offers a patented "scriptless" approach to functional and business process validation testing enabling business analysts and functional users to define, execute, and maintain tests through a menu-driven interface with business language narratives, the company said. Worksoft Certify provides one integrated platform for testing business processes across the enterprise without relying on time-consuming and inefficient scripting processes, Johnson added.

    Worksoft Certify for SOA supports development environments for SAP, Microsoft .NET, Java, HTML, Unix, C++, and mainframes.
