Abstract

We have developed a SOAP Analysis in Dynamic Environments (SPADE) test framework for conducting experiments with Web services communication optimizations. Our framework consists of a Web service and a client, a proxy translator module, a network emulator module, and an analysis module. The Web service and client pair is intended for evaluation, and its only task is to provide traffic for testing. The translator module translates the communication between the Web service and the client to other protocols. The network emulator module simulates different network conditions. Finally, the analysis module is used to measure the performance of the different protocols. The contribution of this paper is our easily extendable test framework for evaluating Web services transport protocols (and compression algorithms).
