  2. 2. / ... > Testing Frameworks and the Computaris Solution While telecom markets, OSS/BSS systems and media content are continuously converging, technologies evolve and products become more complex, testing becomes imperative. Computaris has developed a solution to these challenges: the unique suite of testing tools assists developers, system integrators and network operators with testing and helps them cope with the ever changing telecom landscape. The Computaris solution is a comprehensive and versatile suite of testing tools for end-to-end testing, evaluation and validation of telecom services. All tools are dressed in a convenient GUI, allowing for the easy creation of test plans and test scenarios. The test scenarios describe a logical sequence of protocol messages and can be added with a set of validation rules for assertion-based verification of results. All messages are encoded and decoded according to the protocol scheme of the system under test. > What is TOP Testing Suite? TOP Testing Suite – a Java-based tool that can run on any platform – is designed around JMeter, a versatile testing application to load test functional behavior and measure performance. A set of additional modular plug-ins are available mak- ing TOP Testing Suite a unique and most comprehen- sive testing solution, supporting all major telecom pro- tocols. > Application Servers and Systems Under Test Computaris’ approach to verify, evaluate and validate application servers and other systems under test is based on a black box strategy as defined by 3GPP. Systems under test can be peer servers running any of the major telecom application protocols: Diameter, RA- DIUS, CAMEL, CORBA, Web Services, HTTP/S. LDAP, FTP, Telnet, JMS, SIP, SMPP, JDBC, and more. Test plans can be accommodated to the actual produc- tion environment, for example to simulate patterns of Diameter traffic like 10% immediate event charging, 20% event charging with unit reservation, and 70% session-based charging. To simulate any production environment – in which ap- plications can run on simple commodity hardware and on highly complex OSS/BSS infrastructures – TOP Testing Suite is both horizontally and vertically scala- ble. Multiple instances of TOP Testing Suite can run on one or multiple nodes enabling extensive load and stress testing. TOP Testing Suite’s multi-threading feature allows run- ning multiple tasks to scale up with the hardware in- stalled base of any telecom system under test.
  3. 3. > Use Cases TOP Testing Suite can assist in simple to most complex use cases. In simple configurations, the suite runs as a standalone application to replace and simulate telecom nodes such as MSC’s, SCP’s, or billing and charging systems in order to generate system specific messages and net- work traffic. In more complex use cases, TOP Testing Suite provi- sions data to multiple nodes to test any logical combi- nation of network elements (including MSCs, SCPs, Billing and Charging servers, and other back-end data- base servers), protocols and services. > JMeter JMeter is a powerful testing framework designed to load test functional behavior and measure perfor- mance. JMeter provides extensive performance testing capabil- ities, including: HTTP, FTP, JDBC queries, SOAP, Web Services, TCP, LDAP, JMS, JUnit, and SMTP. JMeter can generate load on a server and analyze overall performance under different load types and load factors, and produce a graphical analysis of the meas- ured performance. > Defining a Test Strategy TOP Testing Suite offers a service creation environ- ment enabling users to graphically compose test plans, and a visualization environment to aid with the analysis and examination of the measured results. Test plans can be created by choosing from a wide range of test elements, and organized as one or more thread groups each representing a particular test sce- nario. The user has complete freedom in creating and orches- trating test logic by building modular test trees using TOP Testing Suite’s predefined and preconfigured test elements. > Graphical User Interface TOP Testing Suite is dressed in a convenient graphical user interface assisting test and application engi- neers to build test plans to match with the level of com- plexity of the system under test. The intuitive GUI is modular and easy to use, and re- quires no specific protocol knowledge allowing users to focus on E2E application level test scenarios. The GUI concept is based on hierarchical test and mes- sage trees which are composed of XML elements. Protocols can be easily customized by adding new messages or message types in the form of XML. Test scenarios can be extended with assertions for vali- dation of received messages, logic controllers for add- ing conditional decision logic to the test plan, and listen- ers to collect and gather specific data. Configuration elements allow the easy configuration and customization of the sampler plug-ins. Test plans can be run simultaneously or sequentially. In both cases the generated network traffic is aggregated and displayed in real-time. By choosing any combina- tion of specific listeners the data can be displayed in various formats: in tabular, diagrammatic, or as a hier- archical message tree which information can be viewed as plain text, HTML, XML, or JSON formatted data. / ...
