Web Service Testing with soapUI: Write Once, Run Automatically

A session at Stir Trek: Darkness Edition

Friday 17th May, 2013

3:30pm to 4:30pm (EST)

Writing a web service, especially with SOAP, is hard. Trying to test a web service, especially with SOAP, is even harder. Without a good tool, you can only test web services by manually piecing together SOAP messages or tinkering with REST URIs. This presentation will both introduce soapUI, a top-notch REST and SOAP web service test tool, and demonstrate how to automate the tests you write with it. First, you’ll learn the fundamental features that soapUI offers. Next, you’ll learn how to write and run web service tests in soapUI. Finally, you’ll learn how to automate soapUI test execution and integrate tests into an automated build system. Throughout the talk you’ll also see some of the advanced features of soapUI like Groovy and JavaScript validation scripting and how to validate responses with XPath and XQuery expressions.
