Original Blog Posting on [compendiumnews.blogspot.com]

I trimmed out some deadwood from the blog (it went back to 2001!).

Early on in the blog I used to post a lot of links, they were like tweets before twitter. Some are still valid and useful, but the posts are not so I’m collating the stuff I thought useful below:





  • SoapUI is an open source web service testing tool which can use xpath for expected result checking. Useful for running scenarios through a webservice. Does not require a WSDL. Supports GUI and Command Line invocation and can be easily evaluated via webstart.
  • Try exploratory testing of webservices with The Fiddler in reverse proxy mode. Set breakpoints and edit HTTP requests and responses on the fly.
  • AutoIt (an opensource GUI scripting language) has an IDE based on Scite which makes it really easy to record, edit and run AutoIt scripts.
