Testing SOA Applications and Services

Mercury/HP published a good article on SOA Testing highlighting some facets of "non-GUI" testing. Mercury solution seems to address Functional and Performance testing for SOA deployments. These 2 aspects of web services-based SOA testing are part of the 4 pillars of SOA testing necessary for comprehensive SOA test coverage. Interoperability and Vulnerability testing form the other two necessary Pillars of SOA Testing.

One of the features that stands out is Mecury's "stub-simulation" capability that allows testers to simulate services to build test suites without requiring access to the target production system.
