Loading WADL Documents into SoapUI
This section provides a tutorial example on loading a WADL document for a REST Web service into SoapUI to create a REST project and populated the service, resource, and method from the WADL document.
If you have a REST Web service that is defined in a WADL document, you can use SoapUI to load the WADL document and automatically create a new project with HTTP request templates to test the Web service.
Here is what I did to load a sample WSDL document, Hello_REST.wadl into SoapUI 5.2 and let it creating a project automatically to test a REST Web service:
1. Run SoapUI and click "File" > "New REST Project". You will see the "New REST Project" dialog box showing up.
2. Click the "Import WADL..." button. You will see the "New WADL Project" dialog box showing up.
4. Enter the example URL in the "Initial WADL" field: "http://www.herongyang.com/Service/Hello_REST.wadl", and click "OK". SoapUI will import the specified WADL document.
5. When importing is done, you will see a new project called "Hello_REST" created.
6. Right-click on "Hello_REST" project name and select "Rename". Enter "HelloREST" as the new name. Then click "OK".
7. Click to open all sub objects under the project "Hello_REST", you should see the "Hello_REST.php" resource, the "GET" method, and a HTTP request template "Request 1" as shown in this picture:
Very nice. My Hello_REST.wasl has been loadedcorrectly. SoapUI automatically creates the "Hello_REST" service, its resource and method with a HTTP reguest template.
