I have a web service that exposes 400 methods , i would like a tool
that i can point at the wsdl and it will generate the tests and sample test data that i can easily change.

In particular, we are looking for tools that will look at a .NET (or preferable SOAP/Web Service) interface, point at the web service & generate tests/test harness automatically with dummy test data. In effect, something similar to what Parasoft's SoapTest provides.

But do not suggest Parasoft's SOAPTest it is too expensive

So .. something to generate the tests - we can then modify to use real test data & execute.

We want to know how we will do the automated API testing (for the .NET Wrapper functionality)

Can you just tell me whether any one provides such kind of testing tools
