This What's New provides an overview of the features that were introduced or enhanced in Service Virtualization versions 3.x.

What's New in Service Virtualization 3.80

Protocols and virtualization enhancements

Java Virtualization. Introduced support for the virtualization of Java applications. You can simulate Java method calls and configure runtime for on the fly virtualization.

Files over FS and FTP/S. Added support for virtualization of file transfers over the general file system and FTP. You can use XML and flat file based communication, such as comma separated values and other text based formats.

ISO 8583. Added the ability to simulate ISO 8583 messages using configurable and extendable JPOS bridge. You can virtualize applications using ISO 8583 by converting native communication into XML over HTTP. Service Virtualization also contains a JPOS bridge configuration accelerator, enabling quick adjustments of unsupported JPOS formats.

Local MQ Binding. Improved performance for MQ communication when Service Virtualization is deployed on the same machine as the WebSphere MQ server, by enabling a direct local connection to the MQ queue manager.

Root Element Routing (Lab feature). Improved Data Model maintenance and simulation performance by adding the ability to divide an XML over MQ service into multiple virtual services, and by adding routing based on an XML message root element.

Virtual Service management and logging enhancements

Web Accessible Message. You can now enable and disable message logging and investigate logged messages directly from the Service Virtualization Management Interface. You can leverage the bulk operation functionality for message logging configuration or investigate flows and differences between logged messages.

Runtime Message Logging. You can now enable and disable message logging without needing to restart the virtual service. This functionality is available in both the Service Virtualization Designer and the Service Virtualization Management interface.

Virtual Service Statistics. Improved virtual service statistics user experience and performance.

Integration and performance improvements

Integration with NV v9.00. Added integration with HPE Network Virtualization 9.00, enabling the configuration of network conditions directly within Service Virtualization environments.

Performance Model Improvements. Improved performance of simulation mode when a performance model is used in the simulation.

Java Script Rule Performance. Improved performance of simulation mode when Java Script is used in the Data Model.

Other improvements

Product Stability. Improved stability of the Service Virtualization Designer and the Service Virtualization Management interface.

HPE Rebranding. The Service Virtualization Designer and the Service Virtualization Management interface were modified to conform with the new company brand standards.

Service Virtualization Labs

Service Virtualization Labs is a test area for experimental features in Beta quality. Lab features provide early access and enable you to provide feedback from direct usage. You can enable or disable individual experimental features. Note that lab features may change, break, or disappear at any time in future releases. For details, see Labs.

Lab features in Service Virtualization 3.10 include:

License Management

HP Service Virtualization 3.10 is now distributed with HP Autopass 8.01, enabling concurrent license enforcement on private networks.

By default, HP Service Virtualization installs with a 30-day trial Seat license for the Service Virtualization Designer, and a 30-day trial Instance license for the Service Virtualization Server.

What's New in Service Virtualization 3.01

Administration Updates

Service Virtualization Management improvements

Enhanced Protocol Support

Improved Editing and Troubleshooting of Data Models

What's New in Service Virtualization 3.00

Enhanced Protocol Support

SAP is the new family of protocols added to the continually growing Service Virtualization supported protocol set. SAP protocol support enables the virtualization of your SAP® server that communicates with 3rd party SAP servers using SAP RFC/IDOC.

Virtual Service Management

The new web-based Service Virtualization Management interface enables you to control virtual services deployed on any Service Virtualization Server, right from you browser. Installation of the Service Virtualization Designer is not required. You can manage existing services or deploy new services from a project stored in either the file system, or in HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM).

Integration with HP Application Lifecycle Management

The integration of Service Virtualization with HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) enables you to store and collaborate on projects in the ALM repository.

Leverage the ALM repository for project collaboration between integrated products. For example, you can create a virtualization project in the Service Virtualization Designer, save it in ALM, and open it in HP LoadRunner or HP UFT/Service Test.

Virtualization projects are stored as test resources in an ALM project. Both version control enabled and non-version control enabled ALM projects are supported for this integration.

Simulation Modeling Enhancements

Security additions

A new WS-Security signature scheme without a timestamp has been added to the supported WS-Security profiles.
