HP Offers Virtualization Tool For Agile App Development
HP has introduced new tools and services to enable software applications to be built using the agile development method. The tools, including a new HP service to create a virtual environment in which apps can be tested, will be part of the HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) suite.
HP Service Virtualization 1.0 simulates a network environment and the network services that the app would interact with in production. Virtualization is needed because actual network services at an enterprise may be unavailable for test and development of a new app, says Subbu Iyer, a product director in HP’s software business unit. For instance, a database administrator would be unlikely to provide access for an application in development to a database in production. Also, some network services might not be available when the development team needs them or be from a third party that charges for a connection.
