Webservice Test Tool

Hi,

I am testing a webservice with SOAP and I have a file that is received as response for my request. I would like to know is there any Webservice testing tool that downloads the file that is received as response from the webservice call?

Thanks in advance.

SoapUI is a great tool.

Thanks for your reply. I tried with Soap UI but in the response I got the file as Byte, I would like to retrive it as a file ? Could you please help me on this ?

Using SOAP UI you can get the response only in bytes not as files. I suggest you to write a standalone client program to retreive the web service and create a file using that byte stream.


Thanks,

Thanks, Kishore. Is there any other Soap testing tool which converts the file byte into file ?

I thought SOAPui had the option to save the captured stream as a file along with other helpful options such as sending a request from a file.

Thanks, Bill. Soap UI doesn't have this option to save the file, Is there any other way that the file can be downloaded without writing the client program ?

That statement made me curious so I went to the trouble of downloading and installing SOAPui 4.5.1 -

This tool turns out to have grown mightily since I last looked at it and it was a bit hard to navigate without creating a project but the readme.txt says it has a "Dump-File" option to automatically save response messages to a local file since the 2008 version 2.5.
