In my previous article I described few most notable service virtualization scenarios, their differences and benefits from the SOA Governance and APIs management perspective. In this article I will show how service virtualization concept in general and Sentinet product in particular, provide real benefits for the service and API versioning challenge. I will use the same service virtualization scenarios as before but this time applying virtualization concept to different service versions rather than different services. [Continue reading...]
