Subject: Testing AS4 and WS-I BP20
I’d like to add a “Testing” agenda item for tomorrow call.
(a) Conformance to WS-I Basic profile (BP2.0) . There exists a Test Suite for BP2.0 (I worked on it…) and we could use it provided we format our message exchanges in an XML log file. I could help on that. That would require first to be able to capture the HTTP trace of some AS4 exchanges. Can we do that on existing implementation(s)? Sander: could/does Holodeck generate this, or an accessory tool?
(b) Conformance to AS4: I suggest here to shoot for a small proof of concept methodology. That could mean: (i) generate an HTTP trace that is then formatted as an XML log as in (a)(that alone could be a useful debugging feature). (ii) write some XML/XPath test assertions verifying AS4 requirements at envelope level or across messages (e.g. message-Receipt coupling)(I can help here), (iii) run the test tool Tamelizer http://code.google.com/p/tamelizer/ that verifies test assertions over XML log.
Point (a) might actually be very important to OASIS WS-I committee, as they lack an implementation of BP2.0 to be able to submit to ISO (they have 3, need 4). We need to comply with a subset of BP2.0 to qualify – say as a message Sender. We don’t need to conform to the WSDL part or to the (WS) “instance” part of BP2.0, out of scope for us.
