Basic Workflow
The basic workflow consists of the following steps:
  1. Gather transactions from sources such as live traffic recording, request/response pairs, and engineering specifications.
  2. Use the transactions to create a virtual service.
  3. Deploy the virtual service to a virtual service environment (
    VSE
    ).
  4. Confirm that the virtual service is working correctly.
  5. Use the virtual service as a stand-in for the actual service.
  6. (Optional) Modify or recreate the virtual service.
CA Service Virtualization Components

The Virtual Service Image Recorder creates a virtual service model (VSM) and a service image.
The Service Image Editor and the VSM Editor let you view and edit them.
During virtualization, the VSM and service image load and run on a 
VSE
 that runs as a service.
The registry tracks one or more 
VSE
s that are running, and 
DevTest Workstation
 uses it to connect to the 
VSE
.
DevTest
Portal is used to monitor and control the VSMs and service images that are loaded onto the 
VSE
s.
