Testing the performance of Web Services

The AgileLoad Web Services features allows to test your web services starting from their WSDL description.

Web services are Web-based enterprise applications that use open, XML-based standards and transport protocols to exchange data with calling clients

WSDL is an XML format for describing network services as a set of endpoints operating on messages containing either document-oriented or procedure-oriented information. The operations and messages are described abstractly, and then bound to a concrete network protocol and message format to define an endpoint. Related concrete endpoints are combined into abstract endpoints (services). WSDL is extensible to allow description of endpoints and their messages regardless of what message formats or network protocols are used to communicate, however, AgileLoad only uses WSDL in conjunction with SOAP and HTTP POST requests.

To insert web service requests in a script:

  1. Select the "Tools/Insert Web Service Request" menu or toolbar icon .

  2. Create your web service scenario in the "Inserting Web Services Requests" window,
  3. Click the "Add" button to generate the HTTP SOAP requests.
