In this release we have greatly enhanced the API Testing and Service Virtualization modules in our thin client interface. This interface enables teams to quickly initiate testing projects and enables the entire test and development community to create test cases and virtual services through the intuitive browser interface. This functionality is powered by the SOAtest and Virtualize servers and can be easily deployed via Docker and cloud platforms.

New Tools and Workflows

This release includes new tools and significant enhancements to the thin client interface for API Testing (powered by SOAtest) and Service Virtualization (powered by Virtualize).

Support for RAML 1.0

The API Testing and Service Virtualization modules can now consume API data from latest RAML definition, extending our support for the latest advancements in development specifications for RESTful services. 

Expanded Cloud Deployment Options

Preconfigured deployment images for CTP and Virtualize are now available in both the Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure marketplaces. These images can be licensed either 'on-demand' (managed by the marketplace) or via 'bring your own license' (BYOL).
