Having worked in the development side of projects for so long, donning a tester’s hat for some projects at my current workplace was a new experience, nevertheless a useful one. It was almost like starting from scratch. I always had this idea that testing was largely a manual process. Yes, I knew there was automation testing and I was aware of tools such as HPQC, QTP and so on. But, having never used them before, I was not sure how they were leveraged to test the multitude of requirements. So, here go a few of my observations when performing a tester role.
Having worked with some of the popular EAI tools like TIBCO BW, Vitria Businessware and SAP PI, it’s time for me now to familiarize myself with something from the IBM product catalogue as well.

Going forward, users of Websphere ESB and Message Broker, would have to migrate to IIB. So, here’s few of my initial thoughts when working with IIB.
