Virtualize/SOAtest Desktop will allow developers to rapidly validate functional and non-functional requirements quickly and precisely.”

Parasoft Virtualize/SOAtest Professional Desktop provides Visual Studio eEnterprise 2017 subscribers with:

- Complete API testing across a broad range of industry standard protocols

- Ability to quickly simulate the messaging and behavior of dependent multi-tiered systems

- Highly-efficient API and protocol testing without the overhead of writing stubs or waiting for resources to free up

- Cost savings by sharing virtual services and/or system components

“We're excited to partner with Parasoft to give Visual Studio eEnterprise subscribers direct access to API testing and service virtualization within their preferred development environment,” said Craig Kitterman, Director of Visual Studio Product Marketing for Developer Tools & Cloud Services. “Teams embracing DevOps face the daunting task of automating API testing and testing against dependencies, with Parasoft SOAtest and Parasoft Virtualize Visual Studio Enterprise subscribers can easily construct advanced end-to-end test scenarios and simulate complex systems interactions against unavailable or incomplete dependencies.”
