Generally, the purpose of testing is to assess applications quality. Many approaches existing for traditional software systems can be adapted or even reused for service-oriented systems. Service-oriented testing has many similarities with component-based testing.
The Oracle SOA Suite offers out of the box support for testing BPEL and Service Bus services. But is this enough? How can we test services which are dependent on external services not available at testing time? Is there an efficient way to mock these services? This session we will present solutions and best practices for testing service-oriented systems and show how testing can be improved by adding some 3rd party products to the Oracle SOA Suite, like SoapUI.
