FASTWebSphereBIAdapters: A Framework for Automated Solution Testing of WebSphere Business Integration (BI) Adapters

The core idea of the invention is to automate the Web deployment of WebSphere BI Adapters to WebSphere Application Server exposing the adapter implementation as a Web Service and facilitate Web-based testing of the resulting Web Service application adapter through a request-response mechanism.

Figure: A framework for automated solution testing of WebSphere BI Adapters

The figure shows a framework for automated deployment and testing of WebSphere BI Adapters.

Implementation consists of the following:

1. A build fetch agent component that reads a property file containing WebSphere BI Adapter builds server information, login information and directory structure specific to the WebSphere BI Adapter build being fetched from the WebSphere BI Adapter builds server. The build fetch agent establishes a connection to the WebSphere BI Adapter builds server, fetches the build

package and delivers the adapter build package to an adapter test machine.

2. A WebSphere Studio Application Developer automated agent that queries a known adapter test machine for daily available builds, creates a J2EE Web Service deployment package using WebSphere Studio Application Developer wizards and deploys the adapter Web deployment package to WebSphere Application Server.

3. A Web client application that establ...
