Smarter Mocking: Eclipse IDE with Service Virtualization
When developing apps, developers want to have all the dependencies, like virtual services, to be available/accessible from within their Eclipse IDE. If they can emulate the missing, unavailable, or costly components or systems in their IDEs, then errors can be easily and quickly identified, and fixed long before they get to production.
With Service Virtualization/DevTest 10.5, we have enhanced the Virtual Services Environment (VSE) Manager plugin that allows for easier development adoption by supporting the creation of virtual services directly through Eclipse. The Eclipse plugin functionality enables you to create, manage, update, and deploy virtual services from MAR files, directories of RR pairs and Swagger specification files, creation of HTTPs virtual services, and augmenting virtual services by updating the RR pairs to DevTest Solutions (CA Service Virtualization). You can achieve all of these in a standard environment, enabling developers to work with virtual services based out of their IDE.
You can access the plugin on the Eclipse Marketplace here.
This is a fundamental shift in the way developers develop and test software today. It can be defined as a “smarter mocking”. It’s a new way for developers to “have everything” they need when they need it in order to be as efficient as possible. Learn more about our eclipse plugin in our documentation or watch this video.
