Testing supplies information about the quality of the service and whether if fulfills the requirements defined during the conceptional phase of the development - with the goal of activating the service with as few bugs as possible.
We support testing by the following concepts and tools:
Runtime Analysis and Troubleshooting of Distributed Systems
With the Trace Analyzer as a part of the Scheer PAS ANALYZER it is possible to run test cases and to trace through the UML process flow afterwards. This applies to synchronous processes as well as to asynchronous processes.
The xUML Service Interactive Debugger is part of the Scheer PAS BUILDER and its SOAP Test Tool. The Interactive Debugger integrates seamlessly into MagicDraw and allows to trace visually through a UML model, manage breakpoints and watch objects.
The Regression Test Tool as part of the Scheer PAS ANALYZER provides the possibility to build up full test scenarios. By that approach reproducible tests lead to a defined service quality after the service having been changed.
As with testing not all backends are always available reliably, it is possible to record or manually build up backend access data to simulate backends for the use with test cases.
The Scheer PAS BUILDER offers the possibility perform unit tests. Single classes can be stereotyped as to be testable, so that the class implementation can be tested independently from the rest of the service implementation.
The Scheer PAS BRIDGE offers a list of command line tools to help you integrate your UML model development into a continuous delivery scenario, such as e.g. Jenkins.
In the next chapters, you will find some general explanations on testing of services running on the Bridge and more details on the concept of making classes testable.
