Testing SOA Applications: What's New, What's Not

Brian Bryson, IBM Rational

The Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) approach to building applications is rapidly approaching critical mass. With this architecture comes a new set of challenges for testers. Brian Bryson demystifies the testing practices to ensure SOA application quality. He begins by building and deploying a Web service to introduce you to SOA. Brian then examines the requirements and risks of SOA quality management including functional, performance, and security testing challenges. Brian demonstrates testing a Web service using both open source and commercial software. Throughout his demonstration, Brian discusses what new skills and strategies, such as a strong focus on unit testing, are required for SOA testing and the more common strategies, such as a strong focus on requirements based testing, that still apply in the new world of SOA.

  • The test and quality ramifications of the SOA
  • Live SOA application and testing demonstration
  • Open source and commercial tools for SOA quality management
