Rational Integration Tester overview

You can use Rational® Integration Tester to create, modify, and run service tests, and performance tests.

These are the components of Rational Integration Tester and can be installed with the Test Workbench product:

Note: From Test Workbench version 8.7 onwards, the Rational Integration Tester Platform Pack component does not exist. All the technology-specific tool packages are now available with the Rational Test Control Panel. For more information about the tool packages, see Rational Integration Tester tool packages.

Rational Integration Tester

With Integration Tester, you get a scripting-free environment for developing tests for SOA messaging and business process integration projects. You can build tests by recording existing system behaviors or from requirements, by entering the data to send and the data that is expected in return. You can also create virtual services to remove test dependencies and enable earlier testing. Virtual services can be deployed by Service Virtualization to provide on-demand virtualized test environments that can support all phases of the test development lifecycle.

Rational Test Control Panel

The Rational Test Control Panel is a server-based web application providing a central repository for virtualized services. The server allows you to use virtual services published with Rational Integration Tester to create, share, and deploy virtualized test environments in Rational Test Virtualization Server.

It also contains technology-specific components used by Rational Integration Tester for recording SOA message conversations, HTTP(S) and JDBC traffic, and for monitoring middleware systems under test with minimal reconfiguration of client applications
