Welcome to the first DevTest Ideas Monthly Update.  The entire Product team greatly appreciates the ideas and suggestions that come from our users and spend time every week reviewing and responding to those ideas.  The goal of these monthly updates is to give you one place each month to see which ideas statuses have changed, and to spawn additional participation and discussion around ideas as we bring them into DevTest.

 

The list below is sorted by the status and then the category or product. For details on why the status was changed, just click on the link to the idea and check out our comments and notes.

 

As a reminder, here are the status definitions and what YOU can do at each stage:

  • Delivered - The feature is GA! Tell us how you are using it today.
  • Currently Planned - We have this in our backlog as a high priority and our team is working to get it into the next major or minor release. Your comments are valuable here as we're in the process of building.
  • Wish Listed - We agree it is an important idea but either need more information or don't have it planned yet for a release. We've placed it in our agile backlog for prioritization. Vote for these ideas to move them up the priority list!
  • Under Review - We're researching, need more information from you or haven't yet dug deep into the idea. Help us gain clarity by adding your comments and use cases.
  • Not Planned - We don't feel the idea is aligned to our product strategy. It is not planned for now or future.

 

Please check back each month and be sure to vote for the ideas you'd like to see in a future release.  Also, keep the ideas coming and help make DevTest better, stronger and more agile!

This blog entry is an ongoing blog post of tips of tricks as we receive feedback for upgrading to 9.1. 

 

Enterprise Dashboard:

 

Prior to 9.1, Enterprise Dashboard was configured via local.properties files.  In 9.1, it is configured within dradis.properties.

 

Here are the 3 things that you need to know when upgrading your Enterprise Dashboard to 9.1.

 

  1. All Enterprise Dashboard configuration is only done in dradis.properties.
  2. Enterprise Dashboard properties in local.properties are ignored.
  3. We recommend that if you have Enterprise Dashboard properties in your local.properties file from a previous release, that you delete those entries.

The open platform that Docker provides is a game-changer for application development. The "deploy and destroy" model Docker offers is useful when consuming hardware/services from a platform as-a-service (PaaS) because it allows you to reduce your cost by only hosting and running your tools when and where you need them. With Docker containers packaging up the OS and application in a single bundle, you can easily run dev-test solutions from CA Technologies on any infrastructure or any cloud that Docker supports.

 

Here are 4 use cases our customers have shared with us on how they use Docker with Service Virtualization to accelerate their Continuous Delivery efforts:

 

1. A Catalog of Ready to Deploy Services

40 - 50% of your services are probably considered “Enterprise grade” meaning they are used by a large segment of your company. Common services that support many applications like a backend ERP system or even a 3rd party service that nearly all applications need to validate against are key areas of constraint in the development and testing cycle. Many times when companies start their Continuous Delivery journey, they start by trying to remove these key constraints by building virtual services and then sharing those services with others who have the same dependency.

 

With the onset of Docker, companies have found an easy way to create development and testing environments “on the fly” for their enterprise-grade services. By publishing the virtual services in a catalog and automatically bundling them with a Docker deployment of the Service Virtual tool along with the virtual services and test cases, they can create an automated deployment of environments for development and testing in seconds rather than days. This provides an isolated, immutable, on-demand environment for immediate consumption.

2. Deployment and Testing on Demand

Similar to the Catalog concept above, customers can deploy CA Service Virtualization  on demand with a Docker image. On demand deployments, with the corresponding constraints removed, allow teams to move faster. Imagine, bundling the virtual services, with the test cases and the testing environment with a single click.

3. Business in a Box

Building on the last scenario, this use case is good use for creating environments and setting the required tests that an external party must run prior to certifying their integration with your tools. So, the 3rd party (your partner) sends an automated request for testing, your team spins up a VSE in addition to the test cases and provides a Docker image on demand for that 3rd party to use. After use, the success/failure reports can be shared with the tester or with your company for “certification” of sorts.

 

4. Diverse Environments

Building and deploying various environments such as a developer onboarding, training environments and demonstration environments can all be automated programmatically with the use of Docker bundled with CA Service Virtualization and CA Application Test eliminating most errors and removing the test environment constraint in seconds.

 

Stating your team is “agile” or that you employ efficient software engineering approaches like continuous delivery is the easy part.  The hard part is executing against this vision. Combining DevTest tools and Docker together allows you to simplify software development by removing constraints and allowing you to efficiently accelerate your continuous delivery process.
