    SOA based project mostly follow 2 approach (not different from any other project):

    - Unit testing for individual service (technical/functional).

    - Blackbox testing for entire application.

    Other tesing can include:

    - Load/Stress testing.

    Till now HP QTC is widely used but planning to explore eCATT as well.

    Testing in SOA mostly revolve around integration and functional blackbox testing as individual service often tested and reliable.

      Sorry for typo...

      I meant HP QC. testing individual webservice is not a problem and can be done by WSNavigator or SOAP UI or any other tool available.

      We are more converned with overall testing when we use tools like HP QC,

      eCATT was also used but manily for SAP specific testing and I am not how it will work with SOA based project and thats what we are exploring.
