HCL OneTest and HCL Launch

When you use HCL® Launch (Launch) for automating application deployments of your application, you can run tests created for your application that are created in HCL OneTest API. You can run the tests from Launch by using the Launch plugin for HCL OneTest API or the Launch plugin for HCL OneTest Virtualization

Launch plugin for HCL OneTest API

With the Launch plugin for HCL OneTest API, you can run a test or a test suite defined in an HCL OneTest API project.

Launch plugin for HCL OneTest Virtualization

Service Virtualization helps you to automate the testing of integration in complex application environments much earlier in the development life cycle. You can use the Launch plugin for HCL OneTest Virtualization for creating virtual services that model the services on which your application depends. You can virtualize services that are accessed through various technologies, including HTTP, MQ, JMS, JDBC, TCP/IP, CICS-TG, IMS Connect, SAP, and Software AG web methods.
