SOA applications by their nature are loosely-coupled with re-usable components that facilitate the development of complex and composite applications with low risk to meet customer needs. This leads to a couple of interesting observations. One is that simply testing the application as a whole is not sufficient. The other is that testing of individual components as stand alone entities becomes absolutely crucial. Continuous and automated testing of both the functional and performance aspects of the application, as the components and applications evolves, tends to become a necessity. This session will explore the various challenges of testing the functional and performance aspects of SOA applications and the methods to accomplish the testing.
