Hi Bill,

the Component Test Edition of SilkPerformer includes 2 graphical tools for
testing web services. One is written in Java (JavaExplorer) the other one in
.NET (DotNetExplorer).

Both are aimed at QA people for point-and-click assembling of test cases.
You can start by entering the url of a wsdl document. Client stubs are
generated in the background and you can call methods of the web service.
Once you have your test case complete, you can export it as a SilkPerformer
project for load testing, as a JUnit test or as a Java standalone class.

You do not need a gui for your web service.

Hope this helps,

>>From what I understand SoapScope is a monitor service.  I actually have an
eval version of it.

I have a full web service, with a WSDL.  I'm looking for a tool that QA
person can use to do functional testing, regression testing, and possibly
load testing (although we have something we wrote that does that).  It needs
to be fairly simple to use.  Again, we don't have a GUI and won't have one.
I know a lot of people use Web Application testing tools to test web
services because they build a GUI on the front end, but we won't, we're a
back-end provider of services.

It might be slightly too technical but how about SOAPScope 3?
I don't know if this contains the Scope-It functionality of "TRY IT" on but I would assume so. This builds the wsdl, generates
proxies and can test the service.

test the service.
