I'm trying to virtualize a file sending mechanism which uses CD as the transport protocol.
Can some suggest me how to achieve this?
Provider is Mainframe application.
Please suggest solution if anyone has done it before or know how to do it.
As Connect:Direct is a file transfer solution, it is unclear what exactly you want to virtualize?
In the scenario of a file transfer - file X is sent from A to B – which is your system under test? A? Or B?
If B, then you probably don't need virtual services but test automation. Connect:Direct has REST API and we can manipulate CD from within a DevTest .tst file and send over files (just a hypothetically statement, I have never worked with this API)
If A, then it depends on which 'interface' is used by your system under test to manipulate Connect:Direct? If A is using the REST API to manipulate CD, then we can take CD physically out of the picture by providing a virtual CD REST API.
