Testing Microsoft .NET Web Services
What the heck is a Web service and how does one go about testing it anyway? A Web service provides encapsulated functionality with an interface for sending and receiving information, but it doesn't have a user interface. Rather, everything is done using HTTP requests and SOAP methods. The best way to test these interfaces, then, is simple: programmatically. This session introduces you to the concept of Web services and how they work. You'll also see how to create tests using different languages. This is a crucial first step that'll get you going down the right path.
