Thanks very much for the links.  I did find that JMeter is currently
developing a component that will be able to load test SOAP/XML-RPC
services, and allows you to graphically build your calls (although you
just type the xml).  Anyone interested in load/stress testing their
XML-RPC services should keep their eyes on that. However, that code is
alpha and does not work at all yet, but their UI gave me an idea for a
super-simple way to do it.  I'm thinking you just type in the url,
method, and full xml request body, and I show you the full response.  If
I leave the request sitting in a JTextArea, it will be pretty easy to
tweak values and test a call repeatedly.  I think I can do it with just
URLConnection, but I may have to use HttpClient if URLConnection is
insufficient.  That seems like an extremely easy solution that will
solve my problem of having to build complex params in code, and
recompile between every call.

Thanks,

Pete
