The dynamism in the business needs of the travel industry have led transformation of system architectures from monolithic and slow batches processes to SOA and real time processes. To ensure good quality of IT systems thorough testing of the applications is crucial. Manually testing an application to find defects (or bugs) is time consuming, expensive, tedious and subject to human error. On the contrary, automated testing, in which Quality Assurance (QA) teams use software tools to run detailed, repetitive and data-intensive tests, helps improve software quality and provide best possible utilization of limited testing resources. The classical automation approach focuses primarily on automating regressive or unit test cases which have already been manually tested while progressive test automation is an innovative approach that enables the automation of functional test cases during the application development process

This whitepaper is an attempt by InterGlobe Technologies (IGT) to introduce our approach towards Progressive Automation Testing in Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) based web services.
