Administering HCL Quality Server

HCL Quality Server is a server-based web application providing a central repository for virtualized services. The HCL Quality Server allows you to use virtual services published with HCL OneTest™ API to create, share, and deploy virtualized test environments in HCL OneTest™ Virtualization.

Functional overview

HCL OneTest™ Virtualization stubs designed in HCL OneTest™ API are published to the HCL Quality Server, which holds them in a repository. HCL Quality Server users can control stubs by means of web pages; and HCL Quality Server also manages the HCL OneTest™ Virtualization environment so that, where possible, messages are routed automatically to the stubs. (For more information about stubs, refer to HCL OneTest™ Virtualization.)

HCL Quality Server also enables you to schedule the execution of test suites on a single schedule basis or a recurring schedule basis.

In HCL Quality Server 9.2.1 or later, the way in which stubs are managed and controlled is significantly different from earlier versions. For more information, see Server-based stubs.
