Release Announcement for v10.3

CA Service Virtualization v10.3 now GA!


We are pleased to announce the General Availability of CA Application Test and CA Service Virtualization versions 10.3. Three key items being released on this version are the Virtual Service Catalog, Enhanced Enterprise Dashboard, and ROI Calculator.


Virtual Service Catalog: We are proud to introduce CA Service Virtualization’s Virtual Service Catalog, which provides a central repository for viewing and sharing all virtual services that have been deployed to a Virtual Service Environments (VSEs) within the enterprise.


Customers can now from a single dashboard, quickly see the available services that are deployed to a VSE and accessible in any Enterprise Dashboard that is connected to the Virtual Service Catalog. This is important because it now allows for a much easier and faster way for teams to share existing virtual assets.   



Learn more from this short video:


Enterprise Dashboard Update: Provides the ability to view more granular transaction and virtual service data within the Enterprise Dashboard by viewing transactions running on specific VSE or virtual service.


Customers have a better understanding on their usage of CA Service Virtualization with much more detailed view of transaction consumption per VSE and by each virtual service.




ROI Calculator Enhancement: Improved the customization and usability of the built in ROI calculator.


Customers are now able to make more granular ROI calculations by:

·        Allowing manual insertion of their own organization’s rates (i.e. FTE Rate).

·        Allowing the exclusion of calculations that are unimportant or may not apply.

·        Allowing users to export ROI calculations, where multiple teams may have their own set of calculations apart from the tool itself.



SV Community Edition to SV Enterprise EditionProvides the ability to deploy a Virtual Service created in the free Community Edition to the SV Enterprise Edition. 







A few other highlights of this currently worth mentioning are:


·        API Functionality Update: Enhanced API Functionality in Test Execution and Reporting.


·        Additional Enhancements:

o   Certification for IBM MQ 9

o   Added support for Proxy servers when recording virtual services through Gateway mode

o   Platform update: Added support for SUSE 12 Enterprise Server SP3, Mac OSX 10.13, Linux RHEL 6.9, Linux RHEL 7.4

A comprehensive list of the new and enhanced features can be found in the 10.3 Release Notes.
