iTKO touts Web 2.0, virtualization in test product

iTKO on Thursday is offering an upgrade to its Lisa product for services testing, validation and governance, touting capabilities for Web 2.0 applications and virtualization.

Geared to architectures like SOA as well as to business process management, Lisa version 4.6 includes service virtualization for simulating a testing environment and enhanced UI testing support for rich Internet application and Web 2.0 application delivery models. Increased governance and policy validation is offered for composite applications in SOA, BPM, and cloud environments.

The product integrates with registry/repositories such as Systinet. "We become the policy validation engine," said John Michelsen, founder and chief architect at iTKO.

Version 4.6 enables automated modeling and simulation of inaccessible or unavailable IT resources into IT virtual test environments for development and testing purposes. This provides realistic behaviors and stateful transactions like a production environment, the company said.

Enhanced UI testing includes requirements validation for Java Swing, Flash, AJAX, Flex, and ActiveX systems. Browser-native testing controls enable testers to verify that applications function as expected in browsers like Internet Explorer and Firefox. "In the UI testing side, we greatly enhanced our Web 2.0 or rich Internet application types," Michelsen said.

Lisa also supports enforcement of verification of policies and SLA by validating business outcomes and results using event-based triggers, such as services publishing.

Lisa 4.6 integrates with the Software AG's CentraSite product for governance. Also, expanded platform and standards support is offered for Eclipse, CORBA, SAML 2.0, and REST-based validation.
