F12 – 702: Dependencies Gone Wild: Testing Composite Applications

Track: Test Strategy, Process and Design

The move to SOA and composite applications has undeniably delivered tremendous benefits. However, the associated distribution and reuse creates various challenges from the quality perspective.

With many dependencies relying on a centralized endpoint to complete their business processes, it becomes essential that this component always work as expected. Additionally, the fragmentation of system or endpoint ownership (or control) shifts how individuals, third parties, and dependent applications must access and evolve their systems. Moreover, ensuring the quality of the system under test is complicated by the following factors:
End-to-end tests need to pass through multiple dependent systems, which are commonly unavailable, evolving, or difficult-to-access for testing.
Accessing such systems often involves transaction and bandwidth fees.
Teams need to test and tune the system under test against a realistic and broad range of performance and behavior conditions.
