At its WS-I Spring Committee Meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, the WS-I Wednesday released final versions of its tools, which consist of the Web Service Communication Monitor and the Web Service Profile Analyzer. The Web Service Communication Monitor scans Web services and holds them for the Web Service Profile Analyzer to analyze them. The Analyzer tests the messages and checks the description and registration artifacts of each Web service, WS-I officials said. These artifacts include WSDL (Web Services Description Language) documents and XML schema files.
Rob Cheng, senior product manager for Web services and emerging standards at Oracle Corp. and a WS-I spokesman, said the tests are available for Java and .Net and are implemented in both C# and Java. The Analyzer features more than 300 test cases, and each test case includes between 50 and 90 tests.
