Best Service Virtualization Tools in 2020

Service Virtualization Tools

In this post, we see best Service Virtualization Tools. Some of the popular Service Virtualization Tools are as follows:

  1. IBM Rational Test Virtualization Server
  2. Micro Focus Data Simulation Software
  3. Broadcom Service Virtualization
  4. Smartbear ServiceVPro
  5. Tricentis Tosca Test-Driven Service Virtualization

Features of Service Virtualization Tools:

Now in this section we will see the above tools in detail.

IBM Rational Test Virtualization Server software enables early and frequent testing in the development lifecycle. It removes dependencies by virtualizing part or all of an application or database so software testing teams don’t have to wait for the availability of those resources to begin. Combined with Integration Tester, you can achieve continuous software testing.


  • Virtualize services, software and applications.
  • Update, reuse and share virtualized environments
  • Get support for middleware technologies
  • Benefit from integration with other tools
  • Flexible pricing and deployment

Micro Focus Data Simulation Software

Application simulation software to keep you on schedule and focused on service quality—not service constraints.


  • Easily create simulations of application behavior.
  • Model the functional network and performance behavior of your virtual services by using step-by-step wizards.
  • Modify data, network, and performance models easily.
  • Manage from anywhere with support for user roles, profiles, and access control lists.
  • Virtualize what matters: create simulations incorporating a wide array of message formats, transport types, and even ERP application protocols to test everything from the latest web service to a legacy system.
  • Easily configure and use virtual services in your daily testing practices. Service Virtualization features fully integrate into LoadRunner, Performance Center, ALM, and Unified Functional Testing.

Broadcom Service Virtualization (formerly CA Service Virtualization)

Service Virtualization (formerly CA Service Virtualization) simulates unavailable systems across the software development lifecycle (SDLC), allowing developers, testers, integration, and performance teams to work in parallel for faster delivery and higher application quality and reliability. You’ll be able to accelerate software release cycle times, increase quality and reduce software testing environment infrastructure costs.


  • Accelerate time-to-market by enabling parallel software development, testing and validation.
  • Test earlier in the SDLC where it is less expensive and disruptive to solve application defects.
  • Reduce demand for development environments or pay-per-use service charges.

Smartbear ServiceVPro

Smartbear ServiceVPro is a Service API Mocking and Service Virtualization Tool. API virtualization in ServiceV Pro helps you deliver great APIs on time and under budget, and does so for a fraction of the cost typically associated with traditional enterprise service virtualization suites. Virtualize REST & SOAP APIs, TCP, JDBC, and more to accelerate development and testing cycles.


  • Create virtual services from an API definition, record and use an existing service, or start from scratch to to generate a virtual service.
  • Create, configure, and deploy your mock on local machines, or deploy inside a public or private cloud to share. Analyze traffic & performance of each virtual service from a web UI.
  • Generate dynamic mock data instantly
  • Simulate Network Performance & Server-Side Behavior
  • Real-time Service Recording & Switching

Tricentis Tosca Test-Driven Service Virtualization

Tricentis Test-Driven Service Virtualization simulates the behavior of dependent systems that are difficult to access or configure so you can continuously test without delays.


  • Reuse Tests as Service Virtualization Scenarios
  • More Risk Coverage With Test-Driven Service Virtualization
  • Effortless Message Verification and Analysis
  • Create and Maintain Virtual Services with Ease

WireMock is a simulator for HTTP-based APIs. Some might consider it a service virtualization tool or a mock server. It enables you to stay productive when an API you depend on doesn’t exist or isn’t complete. It supports testing of edge cases and failure modes that the real API won’t reliably produce. And because it’s fast it can reduce your build time from hours down to minutes.


  • Flexible Deployment: Run WireMock from within your Java application, JUnit test, Servlet container or as a standalone process.
  • Powerful Request Matching: Match request URLs, methods, headers cookies and bodies using a wide variety of strategies. First class support for JSON and XML.
  • Record and Playback: Get up and running quickly by capturing traffic to and from an existing API.
