Automated Integration Testing and Verification of a Secured SOA Infrastructure - an Experience Report in eHealth


This work presents an experience report on the integration testing of a secured SOA with many independent service providers in the field of eHealth. The services itself are closed-source to the integrators and so the verification is message- based only. Due to strict security requirements, all services are limited to use SSL-encrypted connections. This makes it challenging to consume the messages even during testing and therefor to verify the correct behavieour of each service. Three strategies are presented, each showing different benefits and drawbacks to the integration testing process. In this report one most applicable approach was further implemented and discussed.
