Subject: [Webmaster] [Web site] Use of WS-I testing tools
Alex Tucker sent a message using the contact form at
We're developing some best practice documentation for interoperable use of
web services in our organization and are making full reference to the WS-I
profiles as they are fantastic resources.
We'd also like to make use of the testing tools as delivered by the WS-I,
but note that the license which comes with the tools is quite
prohibitive. For instance, we'd like to create a simple virtual
appliance which runs
the tools, capturing web service calls and generating reports on their
conformance, but the license seems to prohibit anything other than personal
use without modification.
Please could you clarify whether, and if so how, we could use the WS-I
testing tools internally in this way? We'd be happy to make available any
modifications or additions we make, e.g. there are a couple of small bugs
in the report generation stylesheet.
