I have one xml coming from another system. My application read this xml and update another system.

I have this URL:
when i go to this URL it invokes doGet() method. But I need to invoke doPost() method.

I want to test my code locally. Can anyone please help me what I have to do to test this code locally? Can I do it through SOAP UI?

Thank you
