Main Features of Soap Panda
The following features are expected to be useful for
developers and test engineers developing and testing SOAP based Web Services.
SOAP Request entered
in a Form
Soap Panda provide form based user interface to accept soap
method input arguments. The user interface expands as more complex types are
encountered within a argument type. The array of complex types are also handled
by this application in a form based manner. This provides great flexibility for
inserting array elements for a type.
Soap Panda can lock user entered input for a web service
method argument inside the soap request form. The locked argument is
automatically gets populated for other methods as long as their type and name
are matched to the one locked by the user. This feature remains persistent even
after closing and opening of the application. This feature will help in testing
and working with web services where many of the input argument remained same
across different web service methods; User of this application could lock the
input argument field and modify only the input argument that are unique to the
web service method.
Testplan and Testcase feature
Soap Panda provide user ability to save input
arguments of a Web Service method into a Testcase object and provide interface
to add conditions for testcase's success using xpath location of the tag to be
compared to the response of the Web Service method request.
