I have a web application in which I have to measure some response times in the client side (user's experience).
In a part of the places it is related to waiting for a response from web services.
For example there is an edit-box in which the user types his id and afterwards moves to the next field but have to wait until a message appears on the screen and the cursor returns to its regular shape (response from the web service).
Do I need a web-service addin for only measuring the response time, or, could I use Services.Start and End Transaction , Timer etc’?

Services.Start and End Transaction , Timer etc’? [ /quote] will be fine but if you want to know the exact response time. log into the the server using putty and capture time stamp from the log file ( convert it to your local time)and look at the time stamp when the event happened/took place now the the difference is your response time.
A different story
we used Soapui tool to automate the web services and used to run them using QTP.(soapui provides a command line to execute the batch)
Since we know the result is saved in xml we used to get the response time from the xml.
when things gets harder ,the harder gets going
