Testing: Test Tools…Part 1 *HTTP *
I’ve written a number of internal documents about testing integration scenarios and thought I would turn these into a series of blogs. Please let me know if you find them useful. Feedback is always appreciated.
I’m going to start with a great little web site I discovered a few months ago. I’d developed an iDoc to REST scenario using the Advantco Rest Adapter.It converted the outbound payload to JSON and I wanted to be able to view what was actually sent. I know the message monitor provides a lot of detail I wanted more. I really wanted to see what the actual post looked like without testing with my partner and bugging them for log files.
After some searching I came across http://www.posttestserver.com/ This is a simple service which will record the contents of a POST to a log file which can be viewed. Use the following URL http://posttestserver.com/post.php or https://posttestserver.com/post.php and execute your request. If you are testing a synchrnous call then the response will contain the log file URL otherwise go to http://posttestserver.com/data/ and browse to the year, month, day, and time of the post.
** Remember this is a public service so make sure the data you are sending isn’t confidential.
