Recently I have been doing quite some work with WebServices – calling them and implementing them, from and in both PL/SQL and Java. And in conjunction with BPEL and ESB. Today, I did some quick tests using JDeveloper 11g (TP4) and more specifically JAX-WS. It turns out to be very simple to publish (and test) a Java based WebService – a matter of minutes.
This article will very briefly demonstrate how to get a WebService up and running, based on a simple Java Class. (more…)
Currently there are few tools that can support testing SOAP interfaces. Both Jmeter and SoapUI are suited for testing soap interfaces. SoapUI is explicitly created for testing SOAP interfaces and Jmeter has a SOAP support since version 2.3.x. I have worked with both tools and I prefer SoapUI. It has an intuitive user interface and is flexible. (Please also have a look at the blog of Jeroen)
You can run SoapUI stand alone but I prefer to integrate these kinds of tools with an automated process. Below you will find instructions for running SoapUI as a part of a maven build. This makes it possible to run your automated SOAP tests in Maven with a build process like Hudson. Combined with automatic deployment it is possible to support an agile software development process that supports frequent delivery of versions and continuous testing.
Maven supports SoapUI with the Maven SoapUI plugin. (more…)
