Title: A Web Service-Based Reconfigurable Testbed for Business-to-Business (B2B) Integration
Published: June 01, 2006
Abstract: Several types of standards and corresponding software solutions have been created to enable business-to-business (B2B) integration. Testing for conformance and interoperability among these solutions are inter-dependent. This signifies the needs to make testing more efficient and to save testing facility development costs. Consequently, a reconfigurable testing facility that is capable of expediting conformance and interoperability tests for multiple types of B2B solutions is desirable. This paper outlines a framework for a reconfigurable testbed to verify B2B compliance using web services technologies. Test components of the testbed are designed as web services that are discoverable, plug-and-playable and composable. The framework uses a web service orchestration language, i.e., BPEL4WS, to configure the testbed. Case studies of using the approach to configure testbeds for testing of XML Schema design compliance to organizational best practices and for testing of information mapping demonstrates the effectiveness of the framework.
