PART 2

 

Web services testing with SOAP:

click here to read first part

Web services testing is a way to access the web services using XML messages that include WSDL catalog listing web services with their name, input and output field parameter details which serve as an ideal testing road map. It is well suited for performing transactions that have multiple calls need to enforce the strict client server contract and works well with the distributed enterprise environments. It is highly structured with error handling security built-in is designed for expansion for expansion and can use transport protocols besides HTTP.

For example:

A simple account management and order processing system. The accounting personnel will use a client application system which is built in Visual Basic. The processing logic of this system is developed in java and has a database which interacts to store information.

The following steps to do the web services testing are:

  1. The client collects and feeds the information of account registration into the SOAP message.
  2. This SOAP message is sent to the web service in HTTP post request.
  3. The web service will convert the SOAP request message to the command that the application will understand.
  4. The information is processed by the application as required and responds with new unique account number of any customer.
  5. The next process is the web service response another SOAP message Which sends to the client message in response to the HTTP request.

The web service testing tools are :

  1. SOAP UI:

SOAP UI is one of the tools to test the web services which are used to design web services test of SOAP and REST architectures. SOAP UI allows the creation and execution of different types of software testing like: Functional test, regression tests, Mocking, load and performance tests and security evaluation.

2. JMeter:

Apache JMeter is an open-source application which is designed for the execution of load tests performance measurements in applications. JMeter has capabilities to perform load testing and performance testing in different application servers and protocols including

  1. Web (HTTP,HTTPS)
  2. SOAP /REST web services
  3. FTP services
  4. Database  through JDBC
  5. LDAP directory services
  6. Message-oriented middleware, through JMS
  7. EMAIL-SMTP,POP(3) and IMAP(S)

  2. What are Web services?
    Web services is a standardized way or medium to propagate communication between the client and server applications on the World Wide Web.
    What is Web service Testing?
    Web Services Testing is testing of Web services and its Protocols like SOAP & REST. To test a Webservice you can
    Test Manually
    Create your own Automation Code
    Use an off-the shelf automation tool like SoapUI.

  3. web service:
    web service is any piece of software that makes itself available over the internet and uses a standardized XML messaging system. XML is used to encode all communications to a web service.
    web service is a mechanism or the medium of communication where two applications will exchange the data apart from their architecture and technology. In web service.

    Web services Testing:
    Web services testing is a process of testing its web-based services and related protocols like SOAP and REST. It is based on the Request-response method. It can be implemented by either of the two protocols – SOAP (Simple object access protocol) and REST (Representational State Transfer).

    SOAP:
    is standard protocol for sending and receiving web service requests and responses which was defined by W3C. SOAP uses HTTP protocol for transfer of messages.
    REST:
    is an architecture that runs over HTTP it means REpresentational State Transfer. The REST emphasizes the interactions between clients and services.
    Soup UI :
    allows testers to execute automated functional, regression, compliance, and load tests on different Web API.
    GOALS:
    Concurrency – testing the simultaneous access of the service by multiple clients to replicate production
    Throughput – the maximum transaction rate that the service can support
    Payload – the size of the incoming requests beyond which the service behaves in unexpected ways
    Response time – the time it takes for the system to respond to a request
    Utilization – the resources used by the system under load conditions

  4. 1. What are Web services?
    Webservics testing is a process of testing web based services and the related protocols like SOAP and REST.

    2. Web service testing:
    Web services testing is a process of testing its web based services and the related protocols like SOAP and REST.It is a medium of communication between two applications to exchange the data . Web services testing is done to verify application programming interface in any application works as expected.

    3. What are the goals of Web services Testing?
    vweb service testing is testing web services and its protocals by sending requests and validating responses.Different web service tools are SOAPUI,POSTMAN,J METER etc

    *web services allow us to use the application from the web which is already there and add some features to it per your requirement .
