Membrane SOAP Client – A beginner’s web service testing tool
Posted by Vivek on February 10, 2013
Those who are new to testing web services often complain about lack of a free tool that provides UI. Though SOAPUI has great capabilities, it requires you to have some understanding of XML. Even though XML is not a complex language to understand but it is sometimes hard for a beginner to find syntax errors or modify it. I find Membrane’s SOAP Client tool useful in such cases. All you need is to import the WSDL file and it generates a form containing text boxes for request parameters.
You can view the HTTP headers too like SOAPUI. The biggest disadvantage is that it only supports username authentication token for secutity. It is not a tool if you want support for WS-* standards. Anyways, you can edit the header details in the XML view of tool.
