Testing async/sync sync/async bridges in SAP PI

I this week we have added a new functionality for testing your SAP PI/PO interfaces.

IRT is a custom build application that works with SAP PI/PO to make sure you can record messages from your production system and run them on your development system. All with a few clicks in the application.

Watch the video to see more about the application

We got a client request to support async-sync bridges without BPM, and then we added support also for sync-async bridges. The system will then figure out what type of pattern that you are using. Based on the pattern modules and recording will then happen with data.

The other feature is to make sure you can limit the number of test cases you have. For instance, you may have different order types on your orders. And they each follow a different rule set and is mapped differently. If you have recorded 100 messages in total but only 5 for one type and 95 for the other type. You may just want to test with five messages for each, so verify that your interface. Then you can use the new trim functionality to delete all the other 90 test cases, so you just have 5 for each type.

Easier configuration of SAP PI/PO test tool IRT

The other day I was going thru the customer journey of my IRT(Integration Regression Tool) application that allows you to test SAP PI/PO interfaces fast.

For my potential customers to see the value in IRT they need to create test cases quickly. There were some steps in the process from them wanting to try IRT to running their first test that could take some time.

The user had to go thru installation where SCA files are deployed on the java system with your favorite deployment tools like SUM, telnet or Netweaver Developer Studio.

Configuration was also one of the points where you had to read the manual to make sure you created users accurate and with roles. It was simple, but if you had not worked with user administration, it could take some time. I wanted to make this much faster and I though of creating a wizard for the full process.

So now you can configure IRT to run you your local system in 2 minutes. I designed it so even my girlfriend would be able to configure it, even though she did not have any experience with SAP user administration.

In the video, I’m also showing how to setup your first test case.

If you want to try it out, you can get a free 30-day trial and test it out on your system.
