I am looking for Web Service Functional Testing + Automation - Open Source Tool.
SOAP UI - Free for functional testing. If you want to extend it for Data Driven Testing you need to buy Pro Version
For Automation - I am planning to use TestNG Framework plus custom java coding for web service test automation.
- Are there any other open source tools which you have used in your previous projects which can be leveraged for Web Service Functional + Test Automation. I am looking for previous project experience / success based on such tools.
The target system is on Java platform based system. I had earlier worked on .NET 2.0/WCF services. I had used VSTS for Web Service Automation. I initially thought of idea of using VSTS but for licencising and cost related factors i opted for TestNG & Custom Coding.
