Features of CloudPort Platinum Edition
CloudPort is an affordable, easy-to-configure, comprehensive service simulation product for mimicking services in the cloud and enterprise data centers prior to implementation. CloudPort enables SOAP, REST, XML and message queue simulation with native cloud provider management. This eliminates the need for moving numerous service components - including databases, application servers, identity stores and ESBs into the cloud prior to determining the Cloud migration strategy and risks. Using CloudPort, the behavior of enterprise applications interacting with cloud-based components can be fully tested and modeled without touching production code.
CloudPort reduces project expense and timelines by enabling parallel development of the client and service. Virtual simulations are built using graphical point-and-click rules. The resulting simulations can be deployed locally, on a network server, on VMWare, or in the Elastic Cloud. Virtualizing services provides a simple, effective way to test the service endpoint before the service is available and to verify the client integrity without impact to the actual service or IT infrastructure. Once the client can interoperate with the simulated service, the integration with the actual service becomes a simple, low cost exercise.
WSDL Schema Parsing
Comprehensive WSDL and Schema parsing with automatic and graphical SOAP message generation.
Flexible Simulation Types
SOAP, XML, and REST types. All types are variable-enabled and can be linked together for complex business scenario testing
SOAP with Attachments
MIME, DIME, and MTOM attachment support with available large-file steaming module for testing files up to 2GB in size.
SSL, WS-Signature, WS-Encryption, WS-Decryption with native PKI for direct access to keys from Windows, Java, and File keystores and dynamic SmartCards.
Protocol identity generation for Basic Auth, SSL X509 Auth, and NTLM. Message based identity generation for WS-Security Username, SAML, X509, and Kerberos Identity Tokens
Success Criteria Rules
Transaction analysis rules for assessing the client adherence to integration and governance rules. Includes database and environment validation.
Create identity, security, or other extensibility tasks which leverage external data to inject and iterate scenarios.
Delays and Timing Rules
Define rules that simulate server behavior with regard to processing time, delays, and interaction among different service calls.
Real-time dynamic traffic monitoring with deep inspection of Header and Body contents. Monitoring statistics provide aggregate throughput and trend analysis.
WSDL Versioning with Automatic Change Detection and Schema Merging. Preserves test configuration and allows synchronizing tests with service version releases.
Functional, Performance, Compliance, and Vulnerability reports. Export formats XML, DOC, XLS, PDF, RTF, and RPT.
Variable substitution in message headers, message body, tasks, identity credentials. Request values can be mapped.
Import and export projects, save all data and settings in portable project files. Comment test cases and test suites for shared environment workflows.
Native IBM MQ, Tibco EMS, Weblogic JMS, and native JMS messaging formats. One-way, two-way, synchronous, and asynchronous configurations.
"We were faced with the task of proving whether the infrastructure servicing our public client portal would accept a 400% increase in traffic. We turned to CloudPort to provide the business rules and performance back-end so that we could properly validate whether our infrastructure could sustain the predicted load increase. This has proven to be a truly ground-breaking product that made possible in days what would have taken months."
