BOSTON, April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Crosscheck Networks, Inc., the leading provider of SOA testing solutions, today launched SOAPSimulator(TM), an affordable, easy-to-configure, comprehensive service simulation product for SOA developers and testers. SOAPSimulator enables SOA professionals to significantly reduce project expense and duration and deliver interoperable and secure Service Oriented Architecture. "We find that businesses are initially excited about automating transactions with their trading partners -- suppliers, buyers and service providers -- but lose momentum and become frustrated when they have to wait for service implementation to complete or endpoints to be available," said Mamoon Yunus, CTO Forum Systems. "This increases project risks, timelines and costs. SOAPSimulator provides businesses the means to parallelize their SOA development efforts and increase the likelihood of successful project delivery." SOAPSimulator provides the ability to mimic producer services even before they are deployed which allows for compressed project timelines by parallelizing client and server development tasks. Service simulation enables corporations to provide a portable alternative to building an expensive SOA reference environment. Out-of-the-box graphical simulation features allow for rapid project simulation and deployment. Corporate best practices can be measured for the WSDL entities as well as the XML based runtime transactions using portable SOAPSimulator(TM) analysis rules. This allows teams within the enterprise to follow a consistent set of best practices to maximize interoperability among services. SOAPSimulator(TM) provides acceleration and optimization of SOA projects with features such as:
-- Graphical point and click SOAP and XML simulation -- Comprehensive WSDL and XSD schema support -- Dynamic WSDL and Schema retrieval from simulation instance -- Real-time simulation transaction monitoring -- WSDL and XSD report card to measure against corporate best practices -- Customizable runtime messaging governance analysis rules -- Multiple simultaneous service simulations -- Complex business logic simulation with runtime variable state machine -- WS-Security and WS-Identity extensibility -- Database and plug-in API extensibility Pricing and Availability The SOAPSimlator(TM) is currently available and priced from $999 to $4999 based on deployment scenarios.
