Service simulation tool for SOA testers by Crosscheck Networks

Newton, Mass.-based Crosscheck Networks Inc. launched a service simulation tool for service-oriented architecture (SOA) developers and testers that should reduce the cost and duration of projects and deliver interoperable and secure SOA, the company said.

SOAPSimulator can mimic producer services even before they are deployed which allows for compressed project timelines by making client and server development tasks parallel. And, ready-to-use graphical simulation features shorten project simulation and deployment.

Providing service simulation also enables businesses to provide a portable alternative to building an expensive SOA reference environment.
