To automatically create a test suite from a valid WSIL document, complete the following:

  1. Choose the Other> WSIL option in one of the available test creation wizards. For details on accessing the wizards, see:
  2. In the WSIL wizard page, enter a valid WSIL URL in the WSIL URL field, or click the Browse button to locate a URL.
  3. Select the Create Functional Tests from the WSDL checkbox.
  4. To create a separate test suite that generates a series of tests to verify every aspect of the WSDL, select the Create tests to validate and enforce policies on the WSDL checkbox.
  5. Click Next. The Policy Enforcement dialog opens.

  6. Select the Apply Policy Configuration check box. This will create WSDL and functional tests that will enforce the assertions defined in the specified policy configuration.
  7. Click the Next button to advance to the Layout dialog.

  8. (Optional) Select the Organize as Positive and Negative Unit Tests checkbox to create both positive and negative tests for each operation since it is important to test situations where we send expected data as well as unexpected data to the server. The default value is configured to Sort Tests Alphabetically.
  9. (Optional) Select the Asynchronous radio button and choose Parlay, Parlay X, SCP, or WS-Addressing to create asynchronous test suites. For more information on asynchronous testing, see Creating Asynchronous Tests.
  10. Click the Finish button. SOAtest will generate a suite of test cases that test every object associated with the WSDL you entered.
