Mindreef is bolstering security verification in its server-based SOA testing software Tuesday and adding three new client products for SOA quality.
The company's SOAPscope Server 6.1 enables teams to test the quality of SOA, Mindreef CTO Frank Grossman said. The product is focused on the XML layer.
"[XML is] pretty much what is communicated across the wire between all the pieces of [an] SOA so it's very important," said Grossman.
Version 6.1 makes it easier to test for WS-Security adherence in an SOA. "Now, we have security profiles, which means you can have an architect set up all the pieces they need," Grossman said. Testers can verify security components, such as X.509 certificates.
The three client products being added to the SOAPscope line include:
-- Architect 6.1, offering design-time governance and an SOA quality and testing platform for policy rules authoring, design-time support, prototyping, change-time, and run-time support.
-- Tester 6.1, for load testing and test automation. Quality problems and potential performance bottlenecks can be spotted.
-- Developer 6.1, featuring tools for problem diagnosis and resolution, unit testing, and support of service consumers. Developers and engineers can build and test Web services and SOA and automate XML-oriented tasks.
Functionality of the three client products is included in SOAPscope Server 6.1. The products are available Monday. SOAPscope Server 6.1 costs US$1,499 per year per seat while Developer, Tester, and Architect are available for annual subscriptions of US$299, US$799, and US$999 respectively.
