A set of field and message definitions are supplied as standard and these can be cloned to create new definitions of any field and any message combination, which in turn allows the editors to be used to create messages and test data for: VISA, MasterCard, AmEx, IFSF, JCB, AS2805, Pulse, AEPS or any other ISO8583 or APACS based messaging system. The utilities adapt themselves to your definitions within the data dictionary, without the need for new software upgrades.
No need to worry about calculating bitmaps as this is all done for you and special definitions like TLV are provided as standard attributes that are available to be assigned to a field.
A set of standard tools allow the user to generated expected results from test data and an in-built compare utility allows any tester to compare expected and actual results for a quick and efficient problem determination.
The integrated graphical user interface allows payment message structures to be defined by using drag-and-drop techniques, without the need for software changes to the simulator itself.
Existing or new message structures can be created in minutes, allowing various test scenarios to be simulated and tested against the processing platform under change.
Test data created for previous message versions is automatically converted to meet the definitions of the new structures, without the need to construct test data from scratch. This means that regression testing becomes a formality rather than a chore.
The simulator addresses all the testing requirements from component testing through system, user acceptance and pre-certification testing, in one simple and easy to use Windows® environment.
Test data, too, can be created within the same environment or by using the supplied Excel® templates.
Inbuilt message and data element verifiers ensure that test data is created to meet current ISO8583 or APACS message definitions, eliminating time-consuming data defect investigations, which are the result of poorly constructed data.
The Frurion™ testing simulator places the tester in complete control of the testing function and provides the ability to create and repeat tests, time after time, in minutes of using the system.
Proteros is confident it can assist your company in getting the best out of the testing life cycle. Our test consultants are able to work as an independent test team for a specific project, can advise on strategies or assist existing in-house teams.
