Invoking and testing a Web Service endpoint in Java is generally quite a laborious task. Most of the tools aimed at simplifying the process still require developer knowledge like XML / SOAP. In this presentation I will introduce JBoss Wise, which is an open source utility internally relying on Apache CXF JAX-WS tooling and meant to simplify WS invocation/testing. In particular, I'll show how its web GUI has been created and demontrate how it can be used to effectively test a WS endpoint without writing a single line of code or XML. This basically shifts the focus from the technology to the data, allowing for fast/agile WS testing and enabling business acceptance tests directly from analysts.
