HP Service Virtualization for HTTPS Services.Open in a New Window

Hi Team,

This is regarding how to virtualize HTTPs services?

The problem which we are facing here is, when ever we change the System Proxy to record HTTPs services in HP SV, always the secured site is getting blocked, displaying "Server not Found".

Do we need to have Secured sites certificates??

After receiving those certificates information how to utilize/add it ?? Have read "HTTPs and Mutual Authentication"" from user guide, do we need to follow the same process??

Requesting your guidance to virtualize HTTPs services.

HP SV Agent ConfigurationOpen in a New Window

Hi Team,

Query: Can we configure HP SV in such a way that, if we are hitting a REST service (which has not been virtualised), to hit to the requested Rest call ?

I know we have option like "Forward to URL ", but here we are changing the System Proxy to HP SV Server, so all the request will be going to HP SV Server . If we want to hit Suppose Google.com , which is not virtualised then it should automatically switch to the Real service.

Can this be achievable?

I have seen the "Use another proxy server to communicate with real services" option in Configure Agents. Though not sure how to utilise.

Requesting your guidance.

Thank you in advance.

HP Service Virtualization Community Edition Issues with installationOpen in a New Window

Hi, I've been trying to download and install the community version of the Service Virtualization. The wizard Readme recommendations installing the SQL Server 2008 R2 Express first, through the link on the wizard, then to install the Service Virtualization Designer.

The link for SQL Server does not seem to do anything. It opened command line and said it was installing however nothing was installed.

I then downloaded SQL Server 2008 R2 Express from the Microsoft site and installed it, however the Service Virtualization Designer can't connect.

Has anyone else encountered this issue, and if so, how might I solve it?
