About Web services testing

There are many different types of services testing for SOA purposes. Two main types of software testing are Unit testing and stress testing. Unit testing is verifying a service’s purpose through predefined data sets that imitate actual usage, which then detects any flaws. It is like a safety net for services, allowing you to see if they work before real data is put into them. Stress testing, on the other hand, determines the performance of a service under a certain user load. This can be used to help determine how adequate the services supporting infrastructure is – such as hardware capacity and bandwidth availability.
