Our company is working on integrating Guidewire(claims processing system) into the existing claims system. We will be executing performance tests on the integrated system shortly. I wanted to know if there was some way to monitor the integration points specific to guidewire. The system is connected through Web Services. We have access to Loadrunner and Sitescope, and are comfortable with using other open source tools also.
I realize monitoring WSDL files is an option, Could you suggest additional methods to monitor the integration points?
One thought would be to begin your testing at the integration point using Web Services. Vet that out first then when you run a test through your claims system, if you have issues, you may be able to rule out the Guidewire pieces. Also, when you run your load against the app, run a very low volume of your WS scripts as a "health check" into Guidewire.
