Problems of Traditional Web Service Testing:
- Most of time the developers reuse third party web service for better support and reduce the development time. It is very difficult to test for test engineers.
- SOAP based web services can ues a lot of WS* secifications, so the underlaying test engineers need to know a lot of security features to test effectively.
- Web Services can be exposed over multiple transport protocol like-JMS,VFS. So testing should be conducted over all protocol.As a result test engineer need to pass a higher learning curve.
