Could anyone please provide any document for implementing DDM approach using CA devTest 8.4?
I referred to this: Data-Driven Virtual Services - DevTest Solutions - 8.4 - CA Technologies Documentation
But, i am still facing issues while implementing it.
I just wanted to mention that data-driven virtual services was still a preview feature in 8.4. It became an official GA feature in 9.0.
Can you provide info on what issues you are seeing?
Thanks for prompt response. I have large amount of data, which does not seem feasible to be configured manually in my VSI. So i was thinking if it is possible to have to placed in some excel and fetch the response from another(or may be same) excel, depending on some unique value in the Request XML.
Here, my requirement is that i have to read the data for the Request XML from excel row and then generate the response after fetching the data from an excel sheet.
the CA DataDriven service info must all come from the same file and sheet. only one sheet used per file.
I ended up writing our own DD service process. many files, any sheet, any columns, asymmetrical per row. (data prefix vs column header)
it is completely generic, and 100% re-usable by many teams.
configurable with a single text file.
Could you please suggest some way of implementing this approach. As of now, i am trying to use "Read rows from excel" dataset, but now sure how to make changes to my VSM & VSI file.
As of now , i am having 8.4 version. I am looking forward to using "read rows from excel" in my VSM. Is that the way to go?
I have some 100 set of data, which if configured manually in VSI, can be time-taking. So is there any way by which if i keep all the argument values (of request XML) in excel, along with the corresponding response for each set of request data, and then try to read from that excel and fetch the response from there itself.
Could you please clarify on this...
Aditya Pandit - can you assist here?
Koustubh.WartyAs Jeff mentioned the requirement matches the 9.0 Data Driven signature feature. So either 9.0 upgrade will be needed or
The other option would be to use some extension(if it is available anywhere) which reads excel rows , matches the row based on request and returns the response.
Aman - as Jeff mentioned and Adi confirmed, to make the appropriate use of this feature you would have to move to 9.0/9.1. Is that a viable option for you?
Thanks Koustubh.Warty & Aditya_Pandit I was just wondering if we could customize our VSM and VSI file for this
But anyways, I would be moving to 9.1 within a month....:)
Thanks once again.
Hello Koustubh.Warty, Jeff_Stein,
I have got DevTest 9.1 now. Could you please guide me on how to implement this approach, where i want to take the multiple request tags from the excel and then fill the response with the corresponding response tags in the corresponding row in the same excel?
Here i would be assuming that the Request and response structure stays same throughout.
