Prerequisite: The DevTest agent must be installed prior to capturing JDBC transactions. If you need assistance installing the DevTest agent, please open a support ticket.
JDBC Virtualization is not meant to be a database replacement. It is intended to virtualize a small number of calls on a relatively static database.
Warnings from the DevTest Documentation:
- JDBC is a chatty protocol. For example, a few clicks in a user interface that retrieves data from a database can result in a huge number of JDBC API calls. This behavior can make it difficult to model properly. If you want to capture and virtualize JDBC database traffic, consider doing so at a higher layer.
- This feature is supported in this release, though we do not encourage users to use the feature without direct guidance from a CA professional. A CA professional can help evaluate your specific use case and determine the best method to virtualize.
