Parasoft Continuous Testing Platform (CTP) is browser-based interface for leveraging Parasoft's API testing, service virtualization, and test environment management functionality across your organization. CTP enables you to create virtual assets for AUT dependencies that are not ready or available for testing, then immediately start defining and executing end-to-end tests against a combination of the real and virtual assets. CTP also acts as a central repository for the necessary configuration details of the dependent systems associated with the application under test.

Service Virtualization

Parasoft Service Virtualization helps development and QA teams access the complete, realistic test environments needed to develop or test an application—anytime, anywhere. Testing is often delayed or cut short because it's difficult to access the complete, realistic test environments required to test meaningful transactions. By replacing unavailable dependencies with easily accessible and configurable "virtual assets", service virtualization allows teams to start testing earlier, test more completely, and test continuously.

API Testing 

You can use CTP to add, review, extend, and reorganize SOAtest .tsts, test suites, and tools.

From CTP's Test Scenario management page, you can add, configure, and manage test scenarios and test clients for REST and SOAP APIs (powered by SOAtest). The test configuration interface is designed to help new users rapidly define a core set of tests. In addition, users can review, modify, and extend the team's existing library of test assets from SOAtest.

There are three main ways that your library of test scenarios can be used in CTP:

Test Environment Management

Parasoft Environment Manager integrates and extends the above API testing and service virtualization capabilities via an intuitive web-based interface for creating, managing, sharing, and executing test environments (including service virtual assets) and tests. Environment Manager unites test environment management (test environment setup, visualization, validation, and provisioning), service virtualization (virtual asset creation, configuration, and deployment), and API testing (test creation, management, and execution).

Test Data Management

Centralized creation and management of secure test data that can be applied across all solutions and integrated tools (including open source tools), as well as across team roles and test types (API/service, integration, performance, security…)


The Marketplace application provides an interface for sharing service virtualization and API testing extensions across your organization.
