WEBSERVICES TESTING

PART 1- API TESTING

Webservices testing is a process of testing its web based services and the related protocols like SOAP and REST. 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 emphasises the interactions between clients and services.

Web Service Testing has the following steps:

  • Understand the WSDL file
  • Know the operation provided by web services
  • Determine the XML format request which has to be sent
  • Determine the XML response given
  • Using any code or writing code for sending request or getting response

The purpose of web service testing is to verify all the application programming interface (API) exposed by any application works as expected.

Web services are a medium of communication where two applications will exchange the data apart from their architecture and technology.

Why web services are needed?

So in a modern technology if you want develop software you don’t have to do it by scratch directly you can plug-in to the application from any readymade service and start including those services in your application. For example, if you want to display the  horoscope information in your application you don’t have to collect, process and render the data. You can directly collect the information from those people who provide those services.

The difference between Web service and Web API:

In web service, all communication or data exchange is by XML.

It is defined by W3C and has defined standards

Cannot compress the data, but can compress the HTML request. eg: SOAP

In web API, all communication or exchange of data can be either XML, JSON or plain data. No defined standards. Can compress data. Eg: REST

  1. A Web Service is an application component for communication or exchanging information between two applications over the network. Web services are implemented in two ways SOAP and REST.
    The goal of Web Service Testing is to verify the application programming interface (API) work as expected.
    Web services help in exposing the existing functionalities over the network to help other applications to use in their programs.

  2. Webservices testing is a process of testing its web based services and the related protocols like SOAP and REST. 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.

  9. Web services are a medium of communication where two applications will exchange the data apart from their architecture and technology.
    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 highly structured with error handling security built-in is designed for expansion for expansion and can use transport protocols besides HTTP.

  13. Web Services are a medium of communication through which two applications may exchange data apart from their architecture and technology.
    Webservice testing is testing the web based services provided and the protocols involved. SOAP is standard protocol for sending and receiving web service requests and responses. SOAP uses HTTP protocol. REST is REpresentational State Transfer and focuses upon interaction between client and services. REST is an HTTP architecture.
    Web service testing follows the steps of understanding the WSDL file, knowing the operations provided by the web services, determining the XML format request which has to be sent, determining the XML format response given, and using any code or writing code for sending requests or getting responses.
    Web service testing is used to verify all the application programming interface (API) exposed by any application works as expected. In web services, all data exchanging is done by XML. It is defined by W3C and has defined standards. Therefore it cannot compress data. In web API, data exchange can be done by XML, JSON, or plain data. Standards are not defined so data can be compressed.
