Use the following procedure to generate a webMethods Integration Server baseline from a set of transactions in the CAI database.
webMethods Integration Server includes the concepts of a flow service and a pipeline. A flow service lets you encapsulate a group of services and manage the flow of data among them. The pipeline is a data structure that contains the input and output values for a flow service. You can add steps to a flow service to perform such actions as invoking services and changing data in the pipeline.
The flow service is the unit that is baselined.
Follow these steps:
Click the plus sign that appears to the left of the name.
Create a baseline that contains one or more test cases that apply to an entire conversation or session, instead of simply one of its transactions. This option is not available for merged transactions.
Create a baseline that contains a single test case and a data set.
Create a baseline that contains a suite of tests (one for each transaction) and a suite document for running the tests.
The test case includes a step that corresponds to the transaction frame that you added to the shelf. For example, selecting a SOAP frame results in a test case that includes a Web Service Execution (XML) step.
The test case includes an Execute Transaction Frame step.
Converts the date strings in the baseline test case or suite to variable definition strings. For example, instead of a string that contains a specific date and time, the string can contain a function that specifies seven days from the current date and time. This behavior is equivalent to the doDateDeltaFromCurrent form of magic dates in CA Service Virtualization. If this option is unsupported, the option does not appear.
Example: Update User
The following graphic shows a path graph that includes webMethods Integration Server frames. The flow service in this example is named updateUser. The purpose is to send updated information for a user to a database.
When a path graph has multiple webMethods Integration Server frame, you must select one frame for baselining. Typically, you select the entry point. In this example, you would select the leftmost webMethods Integration Server frame.
