Ever since I started with developing SAP PI/PO testing was a big thing. There has not been any tool provided by SAP for it.
There was the Detroublator that we used, and I have been hearing lots of users have been using it for their testing. And they had created different wrappings around it to improve the speed of it.
Over the last two years, we at Figaf has been working on creating a testing tool for testing SAP PI/PO. We got some customers using it, and it is improving their operations. Both when applying support packs or when checking that their new transports work as expected.
I thrilled to announce that we now support a free version of our testing tool. I guess it is also kind of scary to give away something that have cost this much to develop for free. There is some limitation on this free version but you will be able to test some of your interfaces and ensure they work. You can only test 10 ICO(Integration Objects) and save 100 test cases.
IRT is a tool that allows you to collect messages from your productive SAP PI/PO system and then process them on your development system. This is the fastest way to create a validation that your scenarios work.
To get IRT running, you need to install an adapter module (SCA) on the systems you want to be collecting messages from and testing on. The testing application is a jar file containing the application and webserver that you can run on your local computer.
See a short demo of IRT below.
You can try IRT out on your SAP PI/PO system now.
I do hope that IRT will be the new way of testing your SAP PI/PO systems in the future.
