HTTP Request and Response Raw Data

This section provides a tutorial example on how to view HTTP request and response raw data which includes HTTP header lines.

Since my REST Web service uses HTTP as the communication protocol, SoapUI also provides us the actual HTTP request and response raw data after each call to the Web service.

Click on the "Raw" tab in the request area. You will see the HTTP request raw data with request header lines followed by the request body:

GET http://www.herongyang.com/Service/Hello_REST.php
   ?Message=Hello%20from%20client. HTTP/1.1
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
Host: www.herongyang.com
Connection: Keep-Alive
User-Agent: Apache-HttpClient/4.1.1 (java 1.5)

Click on the "Raw" tab in the response area. You will see the HTTP response raw data with response header lines followed by the response body:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Sun, 1 Feb 2015 19:30:50 GMT
Server: Apache
X-Powered-By: PHP/5.5.26
Keep-Alive: timeout=2, max=200
Connection: Keep-Alive
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Content-Type: text/xml

(Response message...)

Note that since my REST Web service uses the GET method, the parameter is encoded as query string and attached to the end of the URL.
