How to perform web service testing
Our project has hardware device integrated with the software application.Hardware device should be worn on arm, this will collect the calories burned data and the data is retrieved using software application.
There are API's that allow third party partners to create a software that interacts with our device, these API's provide the services necessary for a software application to perform operations like retrieve data etc.
Our clients wants us to perform web service testing.
We collected some information regarding web services testing from google, it is mentioned that security, functional,load , interoperability testing should be performed.
We have no idea about how to go ahead with this testing.
What are the pre requisities and how to start with these tests?
Can these tests be performed manually ?
Re: How to perform web service testing
You will need some sort of test harness so you can test at the HTTP protocol level.
There are some tools available, or else you can roll your own harness.
there are several areas to test, as you mentioned. You should probably start with functional testing and the move on to performance, security, etc.
