The Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I) has announced two testing tools for interoperability assessment with the WS-I Basic Profile. Pre-release versions of the Web Service Communication Monitor and the Web Service Profile Analyzer are now available. The tools, with implementations in both C# and Java, can be used on any Web services platform. The testing tools and their supporting documentation and processes were developed by the WS-I Test Tools Working Group.
WS-I requests public comment to ensure quality and broad applicability of the testing tools. Feedback should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Final versions of the testing tools are expected this summer closely following the final release of the WS-I Basic Profile 1.0.
