HCL OneTest™ Virtualization overview
HCL OneTest™ Virtualization is software that is used for creating, maintaining, publishing, and running message-based stubs and database stubs.
Installing HCL OneTest™ Virtualization
To use the capabilities of HCL OneTest™ Virtualization, you must install the HCL OneTest API Agent in service virtualization mode.
License management
Licensing for your HCL software is administered through HCL® License & Delivery portal. This portal is FlexNet-based web application to manage software entitlements and licenses.
Configuring HCL OneTest™ API Agent
After you install HCL OneTest™ API Agent, you must edit or modify the attributes in the Agent.config file for the features that you want to test by using the agent. You need to configure the libraries to enable testing the SUT based on certain technologies and also set up the required proxies for enabling testing.
Running HCL OneTest™ API Agent on Microsoft™ Windows™
On computers running Microsoft™ Windows™, the agent is typically installed and run as a Windows service.
Running HCL OneTest™ API Agent on Unix-like systems
On Unix-like systems, you can start HCL OneTest™ API Agent by running the Agent executable in the root of the HCL OneTest API Agent installation directory (for example, /opt/HCL/HCLProducts/Agent/).
Troubleshooting: HCL OneTest™ API Agent
You can use workarounds to common problems that you might encounter when you install and run the HCL OneTest™ API Agent.
HTTP/TCP proxy setup
The process of configuring applications to use the HTTP/TCP proxy varies according to the application.
Setting up the JDBC proxy
After you install the JDBC proxy, you must deploy the proxy into the Java™ virtual machine (JVM) of the relevant applications, set up the proxy for use, and verify that it is deployed.
Administering HCL® Quality ServerHCL® Quality Server
is a server-based web application providing a central repository for virtualized services. The HCL® Quality Server allows you to use virtual services published with HCL OneTest™ API to create, share, and deploy virtualized test environments in HCL OneTest Virtualization.
This guide describes the tasks that you can perform for using virtual services or stubs to simulate parts of an environment if the real services are not yet available or because they are difficult or expensive to use. This guide is intended for API Testers.
HCL OneTest™ Virtualization overview
HCL OneTest™ Virtualization is software that is used for creating, maintaining, publishing, and running message-based stubs and database stubs.
Task flow: Working with the HCL® Quality Server Environments dashboard
You can use the HCL® Quality Server Environments dashboard to perform various tasks such as starting, stopping stubs and scenarios, and modifying stub configurations after you have published stubs to HCL Quality Server. You can also lock the environment that contain the published stubs.
Virtualizing HTTP
You can simulate an HTTP connection with a virtual service, also known as a stub.
Virtualizing HTTPS
You can simulate an HTTPS connection with a virtual service, also known as a stub.
Virtualizing TCP
You can simulate a TCP connection with a virtual service, also known as a stub.
Virtualizing a REST API without recording or synchronization
You can virtualize REST APIs by using the Recording Studio, or by synchronizing WADL, Swagger, or RAML documents. When none of these options is available, you can still manually virtualize REST APIs that use path parameters.
Creating message-based stubs
In HCL OneTest™ API, there are several methods that you can use to create a message-based stub.
Modifying message-based stubs
You can use either the Test Editor or the Stub Editor to create, modify, and enhance any legacy or new stubs created by HCL OneTest™ API.
Creating and modifying database stubs
You can create and modify database stubs in HCL OneTest™ API.
Configuring stubs to connect to HCL® Quality Server and the HTTP proxy
A stub running on its own may not be sufficient in some cases, because it might have dependencies on services such as HCL® Quality Server or the HTTP proxy. If the stub is running on the public cloud and the services are running in the enterprise, you must configure the stub to connect to these services.
Publishing and running stubs
You can publish stubs that are created in HCL OneTest™ API to HCL® Quality Server, Dockerfile and build context, Kubernetes, or Istio, if the stub is based on a supported transport.
Viewing results in HCL® Quality Server
You can use HCL® Quality Server to display the results of tests that you run in both HCL OneTest™ API and HCL Quality Server.
Viewing usage statistics of virtual services in HCL® Quality Server
HCL® Quality Server collects and stores usage metric data. The metric data might include the number and types of actions that are used, the features that are used in the workbench, details about Operating System or languages set while running, and so forth. You cannot view the metric data on the HCL Quality Server user interface, but it is available from the underlying implementation. Storage is either managed by H2 or optionally Apache Cassandra.
Viewing reports in HCL OneTest™ Server
All the project stakeholders can view test reports for multiple testing products from the Results page on HCL OneTest™ Server. You can access the Results page from a web browser. Therefore, there is no need to install the desktop client.
Troubleshooting: HCL OneTest™ Virtualization
You can use workarounds to common problems that you might encounter when you use HCL OneTest™ Virtualization.
This guide describes the tasks that you can perform for tracking the quality of the application. This guide is intended for Test Managers.
