Mindreef Inc., Hollis, N.H., on Monday released an updated version of SOAPscope, the company's Web services diagnostic tool. SOAPscope 3.0 includes new integration with Microsoft's Visual Studio .NET and the ability to graphically query message logs to identify performance bottlenecks.
Other new features of SOAPscope 3.0 include:
- SOAP message analysis. SOAPscope checks SOAP messages for proper formatting and conformance to the SOAP specifications, WS-I's Basic Profile 1.0 and the applicable WSDL file.
- WS-I Testing Tool integration. From SOAPscope's database, users can click a button and SOAPscope generates a WS-I Testing Tools "profile compliance" report.
- Advanced HTTP support. The tool offers new support for secure messaging and other advanced HTTP features, including SSL/TLS, basic authentication and compression (gzip/deflate).
SOAPscope 3.0 is available as a download on Mindreef's Web site.
