*Parasoft Extends Support for Testing Complex Web Services and*

*Heterogeneous SOA Environments with SOA Test 4.1*

*/Comprehensive Solution Helps Enterprises Develop Secure, Reliable Web 

* *

*September 13, 2005 – Monrovia, Calif. –* Parasoft Corporation, leading 
provider of automated software error prevention solutions, announced 
today the release of Parasoft SOA Test 4.1, its automated test and 
analysis product for web services and Service Oriented Architecture 
(SOA) implementations. The new release extends support for the testing 
of complex web services transactions and SOA implementations based on 
heterogeneous messaging and transport protocols. SOA Test allows users 
to verify all aspects of a Web service with one comprehensive, automated 
testing suite ensuring those services meet security, reliability, 
performance and reuse objectives.

Parasoft SOA Test 4.1 adds IBM MQ, TIBCO Rendezvous, and SMTP to the 
list of messaging and transport protocols it supports for testing and 
validating XML/SOAP transactions, extending its support for the testing 
of heterogeneous SOA environments. The release provides for the 
functional and load testing of Enterprise Java Beans (EJB’s), allowing 
EJB’s to be tested directly through their remote interfaces without 
having to go through web or web service interfaces. To better enable the 
configuration of test scenarios that map to complex use case 
requirements, SOA Test 4.1 provides support for “if/else” and “do while” 
logic flow within its auto-generated test suites and provides extended 
control of parameterization of test variables and reference data sources.

“As enterprises extend their implementations of web services and SOA, 
their testing and validation of those services requires the ability to 
generate test scenarios that fully represent the complexity of the 
business transactions to be enacted by them and the heterogeneous

infrastructures of messaging and transport protocols they will be based 
on. This is a major challenge,” said Wayne Ariola, Vice President of 
Corporate Development at Parasoft. “We continue to extend the 
capabilities of SOA Test to provide organizations with the support and 
automation they need to validate their web services for the security, 
reliability and performance that is required of them.” accomplishes that 
goal, offering automated unit testing, penetration testing, scenario 
testing, load and performance testing, and regression testing to make 
sure each of the individual components of the Web service are operating 
the way you would expect.”

SOA Test is an automated suite of test and analysis tools that provide 
organizations deploying Web services or SOAs with the means to ensure 
those deployments are secure, reliable and compliant. SOA Test provides 
a breadth of functionality including four-tier WSDL validation, unit and 
functional testing of the client, unit and functional testing of the 
server, performance testing, the graphical modeling and test of complex 
scenarios, penetration testing for security validation and full 
regression testing. SOA Test addresses key Web service issues such as 
interoperability, security, compliance, change management, and scalability.


SOA Test 4.1 is available for Windows 2000, Windows XP, Linux and 
Solaris. Pricing starts at $3,995. www.parasoft.com/SOA_Test
