This topic describes the requirements that should be met in order for TestComplete to be able to test web services properly. If something goes wrong, check the requirements listed in the following sections:
TestComplete support for testing web services is provided by the following plugins:
Web Service Support
Web Services Editor
These plugins are installed and enabled automatically. Therefore, you can test web services out-of-the-box, without configuring anything.
You can check to see if these plugins are active by selecting File | Install Extensions from the TestComplete main menu. If one of these plugins is not available, you need to run the TestComplete installation in the Repair mode.
|Note:||To use the plugins, you must have a license for TestComplete Web module.|
You need a functioning network connection to the tested web service. Else, TestComplete will be unable to simulate calls to the web service methods.
If you use the .NET API to call methods of the tested WCF services with TestComplete (when the Preferred Web Service API | .NET WCF option is enabled in it), you must have Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 or later installed on the computer where TestComplete is running.
