Web Services Options Dialog

Applies to TestExecute 14.91, last modified on July 1, 2021

The options in the Web Services Options dialog affect the functional testing of web services. To call the dialog, right-click the TestExecute icon () in the notification area (tray), select Options from the ensuing context menu then select Engines | Web Services from the tree displayed on the left side of the resulting Options dialog.

The following options are available:

  • HTTP Proxy Server

    This section contains options that specify proxy settings that are used to connect to the web service under test.

    • This computer is connected to the Internet via proxy - Specifies whether your computer connects to the tested web service via a proxy server. The address, port and login settings of the proxy server are specified by other options of this section. Note that the proxy server must support the CONNECT function (the vast majority of modern proxy servers support this function).

      If TestExecute has direct access to the tested web service, you may turn this option off. In this case, all other options of this section will be ignored.

    • Proxy address - The address of the HTTP proxy server, which TestExecute uses to connect to the tested web service. This can be the computer name or IP address.

    • Port - The port number that TestExecute uses to connect to the HTTP proxy server. Default value: 8080.

    • Login and Password - The user account (login and password) used to identify the user on the specified proxy server. These options are needed when the proxy server requires user authentication.

  • Timeout Settings
    • “Send” timeout, s - The maximum number of seconds that can be spent for sending a request to the tested web service. Default value: 600. If the request has not been sent within this time period, TestExecute treats the connection to the web service as inactive.

    • “Receive” timeout, s - The number of seconds that TestExecute will wait after sending a request to the tested web service and receiving the response. Default value: 600. If TestExecute does not receive a response during this time period, it treats the connection as inactive.

      Note: If .NET WCF API is used, use the "Send" timeout option to specify both the Send and Receive timeouts. The value of the "Receive" timeout option is ignored.
    • “Connect” timeout, s - The number of seconds that TestExecute will wait after sending a connection request to the tested web service and receiving the response. Default value: 600. If TestExecute does not receive a response during this time period, it means the web service is off or unavailable and it cannot be tested.

  • Preferred Web Service API

    This section contains options that let you select the desired API (.NET WCF or native) for calling methods of the service under test.

    • .NET WCF - (Default). If this option is selected, TestExecute uses the .NET API to call methods of the web service under test.

    • Native - If this option is selected, TestExecute uses the Native API to call methods of the web service under test.
