How to integrate perfect the virtual services in the environment


I ask myself the question, how to integrate the virtual services in a very smooth way in our dev and test environment. Is there a feature I not already discovered or is the only way to set a load balancer in between my dev/test env?

** What exactly I need? **

  • Request --> Dev/test (this environment have a downtime) --> the request goes to the virtual-service
    ------> Can Parasoft Virtualizer handle this?

  • Request --> LoadBalancer --> Dev/test (down) forward to virtual-service
    ---------> or I need a load balancer

In fact I need to build the virtualizer inside the environment and in the best case nobody will notice if the call goes to virtual-service or real dev/test. --> is this possible?

    Yes, I believe what you are describing is possible.

    In the Message Proxy feature provided by Virtualize there are options for a primary and a secondary connection. When there is an error reaching the primary connection, in your example this could be the dev/test environment, then the message is sent to the secondary connection, which could be your virtual service.

    This documentation describes Primary and Secondary Connection settings.

    Hope this helps!
