I know that there are hundreds of salesmen out there trying to sell the "ultimate solution" for SOA testing. But I'd like to hear about processes and tools you guys have used and in what situations they are appropriate. I'm interested in both functional testing and performance/load.
I'm not looking to buy, I am looking to find out what we should be terrified of when we start to ramp up testing of as many as 100 unique entry points.
They're giving away their web service client to the first 50k downloaders.
It can load your wsdl, detect all your services and auto-generates basic sets of tests for them. You can expand on those tests easily enough with a little time spent playing around with the app.
You can use their tools to test at the web service, ejbs, esb, db and gui level. It's also Java so platform independence and integration with Junit is nice if you have a multitude of different systems to test. The enterprise product isn't cheap, but cheaper than other vendors we looked at.
Actual quote from an email I received from a product manager:
"I want to tell all our customers to go to it (site) on Monday next week. I especially want to make sure the forums work right. Can you test every feature you can find?"
