Hi
Thank you for reading my post.
what we can use to perform some load test on our web services?
I just need a list of tools that are good enough to evaluate and test.

Thanks

Assuming we are talking about a service using HTTP, I would use the Apache Commons HttpClient toolkit.

It is very convenient for executing HTTP connections.

Instead of a full-blown SOAP client creating XML requests and parsing the result I would just grab the text of a typical client message and use it as a String template to create load testing requests.

I use Apache JMeter and I'm very happy with it.

I would suggest soapUI from www.soapUI.org
It is an application specifically developed to test web services.

If you are serious about load testing I would suggest LoadRunner or Performance Center from HP. Additionally, HP offers Service Test which is a functional testing tool for SOA that creates tests that can be used with LoadRunner to do performance testing. These tools are not cheap, but they are best of breed.

soapUI++

It can also be run from the command line and provide output files, although last time I checked it didn't integrate into CruiseControl (which was what I was looking for)
