I have been asked to test some functional requirements (fields in the application) without front end.
Can anyone let me know how to do this?
I thought of testing this by validating the xml messages
Do you understand what is meant by the terms "front end" and "back end" with regard to the system you will be testing?

Front end - Place where we input the data
Back end - Database where the input data is stored
Ok, so you are expected to get data into the database, without using the User Interface, and to verify that it ends up in the proper places.
Now, in your application, how can you do that? What other mechanism in your application could send data to the database?
There are tools which can be configured to act as a front-end if so desired. These tools can often be more complecated than they are worth though.
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
