Submiting SOAP Test Requests to Server

This section provides a tutorial example on how to submit a test request to the server represented by the port location defined in the WSDL document using SoapUI.

To validate the SOAP test request created in the previous tutorial, I used the submit function to call the web service with the test request.

1. Continue from the previous tutorial.

2. Look at the icon area below the title bar of the request editor, the port location, http://www.herongyang.com/Service/Hello_SOAP_11.php, provided in my WSDL document is displayed.

3. Click the triangle icon, the one that says "Submit request to specified endpoint URL". In a second or two, the SOAP response received from my Hello Web service server will be displayed.
SoapUI - Submit SOAP Request

Here is content of the SOAP response received for the test request:

<soapenv:Envelope
   xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
   xmlns:hy="http://www.herongyang.com/Service/">
   <soapenv:Header/>
   <soapenv:Body>
      <hy:HelloResponse>
         Hello from server - herongyang.com.
      </hy:HelloResponse>
   </soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>
