I recently learned how to use SOAP UI to test REST and SOAP Webservices. But now, I am looking for a similar open-source software to test Publish-Subscribe connections for performing automated testing. I want to use several test cases. Please suggest me tools that can do this.

I believe you need to look for tools which support Messaging Queue Services, if you're limited to free and open source, I can recommend to choose one of the following, both support JMS API:

  1. Apache JMeter - Building a JMS Testing Plan - Apache JMeter
  2. Gatling - JMS
  • Thanks a lot. Can I also use Hermes JMS with SOAP UI for testing messaging queue services? I will be using TIBCO EMS as a communication bus.

  • Actually looking into Working with JMS Messages guide you should be able to test it using SoapUI as well

In our team, we used SpecFlow to test the service based test cases.


If you need a tool to post HTTP messages for a functional tests, have a look at RestAssured, Karate, Postman.
