This topic covers TIBCO Rendezvous technology, which provides a message bus that simplifies the process of exchanging data among large scale networks. It offers an efficient, yet simple way for applications to communicate with one another. With its increasing popularity, more and more corporations are planning to integrate TIBRV as their main communication link among applications.

SOAtest enables you to test web services that use TIBCO Rendezvous. Functionality tests are generated automatically from the WSDL. You can choose from a variety of transports available. The following documentation provides step-by-step instructions on how to configure SOAtest to run with TIBRV.

Configuring TIBCO for Use in SOAtest


Before configuring TIBCO protocol properties, you must have TIBRV installed on your machine. Once TIBRV is installed on your machine, you must then add the TIBRV jar file to SOAtest’s classpath through SOAtest’s System properties.

To configure TIBCO for use in SOAtest:

  1. Run the installation file.
  2. Once TIBCO Rendezvous is installed on your machine, add the appropriate JAR files to SOAtest’s classpath as follows:
    1. Choose Parasoft> Preferences.
    2. Open the Parasoft> System Properties page.
    3. Click the Add JARS button and choose and select the necessary JAR files to be added. In this case, add <TIBRV>\lib\tibrvj.jar to the classpath.

Configuring SOAtest to Use TIBCO Rendezvous

To configure SOAtest to use TIBCO Rendezvous:

  1. Complete the WSDL test creation wizard as normal (see Creating Tests From a WSDL for details).
  2. Double-click the node for the test that will be using TIBCO.
  3. In the right GUI panel, select the Transport tab and select TIBCO from the Transport drop-down menu.
  4. Configure the following options:

Notice that when point-to-point is selected for receiving, it automatically constrains the delivery mode in SOAtest to the same mode as the one set in the send area (because in that pattern, you send and receive messages using the same delivery mode). However, when the point-to-point check box is not selected, you can select how the Reply message should be delivered (because in that mode, the pattern is asynchronous, and a response message could be expected to come as certified or reliable mode, depending on how your TIBCO app is set up).

Once you are done setting up TIBCO Properties, you should now be able to send and receive messages using SOAtest.
