Automated Testing for Services

Course Abstract

This course provides an initial glimpse into the end-to-end workshop of service-oriented testing. Participants will utilize and learn the fundamentals of service oriented architecture and will use common terms and concepts. Compare and contrast methodologies will be explored delving into client-server applications and important industry best practices. Differentiation between SOAP and REST will be defined, and the approaches each uses in web service and Microsoft services inside of an agile testing framework. Centralization of testing and possible reuse of the services tests are reviewed.


This is a course for technical agile members who desire to move into the world of services-oriented testing. The participant must have a clear understanding of agile concepts and also have a solid grasp of programming. This is not a course for Manual Testers with little to no programming experience.


This course requires participants to have taken an acceptable introduction to agile course. The participants must have demonstrable programming skills.
