IBM Rational Test Virtualization Server (RTVS)

Version: 2

The Green Hat plug-in for UrbanCode Deploy that was shipped earlier has been split into the following two parts in the current release:

  • Rational Integration Tester plug-in, which helps you initiate integration tests from UrbanCode Deploy server.
  • Service virtualization plug-in, which executes virtual services that model services which your application depends on. You can initiate the execution of virtual services from UrbanCode Deploy server.

All the three plug-ins (Green Hat plug-in, Rational Integration Tester plug-in, and the Service Virtualization plug-in) can coexist on the same UrbanCode Deploy server. All the process steps supported by the individual plug-ins are still functional.

The steps in the Service Virtualization plug-in use the Rational Test Control Panel Ant client to communicate with the server.


Platform Support
  • This plug-in runs on all operating systems that are supported by both the IBM UrbanCode Deploy agent (except for z/OS) and the Rational Test Control Panel Ant client
  • This plug-in works with Rational Test Workbench v8.5 or higher.

Known Limitations

The Start scenario and Stop scenario steps do not work within a transient environment.
