How to select a web service testing tool?

Well this is the first and foremost question which comes to mind when we have a web service testing project. I have just tried to put down my opinion about how to select a tool. There are two things which I will expect from a test tool:

1. Tool which will allow stand alone testing of web services
2. Tool which can be used as a test harness to create different suites of functional and regression test cases.

There are other factors also which influence the selection of tool. I would like to prioritize them like this:

1. Tool allows you to create test cases and Test case Management.
2. Tool allows integration with other frameworks or applications.
3. A good result reporting format.
4. Tool supporting different platforms.
5. Tool should be easy to learn.


  1. can you give a list of good tools available in the market.
