Parasoft Supports WS-I Testing Tools 1.0 with SOAPtest 2.5

3/18/2004 - Parasoft, leading provider of Automated Error Prevention (AEP) software solutions, announced that Parasoft SOAPtest 2.5 now has extended testing capabilities to include Testing Tools 1.0, designed by the Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I) to check conformance to Basic Profile 1.0.

SOAPtest 2.5 verifies the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) and Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) traffic for conformance to Basic Profile 1.0 using Testing Tools 1.0 developed by WS-I. Parasoft contributed to writing the Testing Tools as a member of the WS-I Testing Tools Working Group.

"Parasoft is actively involved in the WS-I to promote Web services standards, and we have worked to seamlessly couple SOAPtest 2.5 with the new Testing Tools 1.0 and Basic Profile 1.0," said Gary Brunell, Parasoft Vice President of Professional Services. "And with existing support for MIME Attachments and WS-Security, SOAPtest is also ready to support future versions of these WS-I standards."

SOAPtest enhances the usability of the WS-I Testing Tools by eliminating the need to set up man-in-the-middle Monitor and configuration files for the Analyzer. By functioning as both the Monitor and the Analyzer, SOAPtest is able to verify both WSDLs and SOAP traffic for conformance to Basic Profile 1.0 without any configuration files. The only required input to SOAPtest is the WSDL URL. SOAPtest produces WS-I conformance reports that can be viewed directly in a Web browser.
