BOSTON, July 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Crosscheck Networks, Inc., the leader in SOA testing, today announced the availability of its third generation SOA testing product, SOAPSonar v3.0. This release provides even greater ease of use in setting up test cases against an evolving set of complex SOA web services deployments. New features allow each team in the SOA lifecycle to test functional adherence, performance profiling, service debugging, service vulnerability assessment, and interoperability posture within one consistent product interface. New adaptors for OASIS profile specifications allow policy and identity management frameworks to be tested in conjunction with the SOA web services applications for comprehensive SOA deployment diagnostics. "We are noticing an increase in the sophistication of SOA use cases in the field, specifically around policy deployments leveraging Identity Management and WS-Security provisions" said Mamoon Yunus, Chief Technology Officer at Forum Systems and advisor to Crosscheck Networks. "This in turn increases the pressure on testers to have diagnostic capabilities to validate the authentication and authorization policy enforcement points as well as message security requirements." The newest release of SOA Testing product extends on the SOAPSonar testing framework, providing flexible solutions across all phases of the SOA development lifecycle. Some of the new features in release 3.0 include: * Project, Suite, and Report views for rapid test creation and diagnostics * Integrated test scheduling, report generation and email * Command-line interface allowing integration with other test management infrastructures and build environments * MTOM attachments and MTOM encryption and signatures * REST test case support * Conditional testing of test simulation sequences * Report export formats - DOC, XLS, PDF, RTF, RPT * WS-Signatures, WS-Encryption, WS-Security Identity Tokens, WS-Addressing * DLL API pluggable architecture and inline scripting In addition, the third generation SOA Testing Technology now provides real-time visual feedback identifying SOA blind spots during functional regression, performance, vulnerability assessment and interoperability compliance testing. The capability to present a panoramic view of all aspects of SOA testing significantly aids a user's testing process. The user also now has the option to quickly isolate the problem in the test case without manually inspecting every SOA request and response message. "The ability of SOAPSonar to further reduce the pain points associated with SOA testing significantly aids in the roll-out process of a SOA application," said Dino Esposito, author MSDN magazine and ASP.NET. "This product stands alone in its unique ability to combine the most advanced SOA testing features in the industry while providing an intuitive interface that is useable by novice and expert alike."
