Web Services Validation Tool for WSDL and SOAP

Web Services Analysis Tool analyzes and reports problems in SOAP messages and schema in Web Services Description Language.
While developing Web services, developers need to set up application servers and deploy Web services applications to the servers in order to validate Web services messages. This causes quite a bit of overhead for Web services developers, particularly during a tight development schedule. Current Web services architecture does not require validation of Web services messages against WSDLs during message processing. This could pose a potential security risk to enterprise servers hosting Web services.
With the Web Services Validation Tool for WSDL and SOAP, Web services developers are able to validate Web services messages without deploying actual Web services applications to application servers. This saves a lot of time and effort in deployment and maintenance of test servers.
Furthermore, this validation tool can be also used to filter live Web services messages after Web services applications are successfully deployed. In a Web services production environment, this technology can be deployed to validate Web services messages and filter invalid or malicious Web services messages. This provides Web services to operate in a more secure and efficient environment.
The package includes the Web Services Validation tool for WSDL and SOAP that provides analysis of Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) message structures and verifies the validity of the message against schema in Web Services Description Language (WSDL). This technology can used as an independent component in existing Web services architectures to validate and filter SOAP messages efficiently and securely.
