Functional Testing of Web Services

Functional testing of Web services in Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) requires the ability to test without a user interface. Micro Focus delivers this capability with SilkPerformer® SOA Edition.

SilkPerformer® SOA Edition and .NET/Java Explorers support the testing of Java or.NET Web services by testing the following key criteria:

  • Unit/component validation: assures individual services work properly in the developer's environment
  • Functionality: ensures that services actually meet business expectations and deliver value from an end-user perspective
  • Performance: makes certain that Web services perform well under heavy, concurrent usage
  • Interoperability: makes sure that Web services continue working as designed when combined with other services individually or under load conditions
