SOA Testing

SOA Testing

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is the way of planning, designing, growing, developing, deploying, and managing enterprise systems in order to ensure that business requirements and technical solutions are aligned closely.

SOA Testing Challenges

The common testing approach that is focused on coding and functional testing has evolved with traditional systems and web service architectures. Web application testing is initiated testing of business logic through the GUI, which is crucial when implementing new systems. Some of the SOA Testing challenges are:

Complex SOA Architectures
Non-existence of GUI in several service components
The focus on complete business scenarios vs. individual business logic
Usage of third-party services outside the organization
Security and performance to be considered
SOA testing is driven by data over business logic
