Time Simulator is a temporal virtualization tool transparent to your application, database and overall testing environment. It is a standard, out-of-the shelf software package, which does not require any code modification. It can be installed and operated within minutes without any specific training.
Time Simulator intercepts the call to the system clock,
and returns a virtual date / time instead.
Principle of Time Simulator: the tool runs at the kernel level, on a Windows server. 1. when an application makes a call to the system clock for a date/time; 2. Time Simulator intercepts the API call; and 3- returns a virtual time instead.
Time virtualization is a technique that lets you create multiple virtual instances of the system clock. Instead of being constrained to one physical clock, a time simulation tool lets you create as many virtual clocks as necessary.
Synch servers and applications, and exclude some processes and users.
Assign a virtual clock to a specific time zone.
