Boost your SoapUI capabilities to test RESTful and SOAP APIs with over 65 hands-on recipes
Packed with practical guidance, this book will show you how to build core SoapUI skills, integrate open source libraries, and code the extra functionality needed to quickly overcome common and advanced API test problems.
Building up your skills, you will progress to more advanced topics such as Groovy more » scripting, testing secured services, load test concurrency issues, using plugins and developing your own!
So when out-of-the-box SoapUI can't do exactly what you need or the quick guidance you require just isn't there, then take, tweak, and use what you need from a broad range of practical examples in this book and customize your way to API testing success with coverage of SOAP, REST, and Groovy. « less
Along with these general skills, the authors illustrate several applications that are relevant to data scientists, such as reading and writing spreadsheet documents both locally and via Google Docs, creating interactive and dynamic visualizations, displaying spatial-temporal displays with Google Earth, and generating code from descriptions of data structures to read and write data. These topics demonstrate the rich possibilities and opportunities to do new things with these modern technologies. The book contains many examples and case-studies that readers can use directly and adapt to their own work. The authors have focused on the integration of these technologies with the R statistical computing environment. However, the ideas and skills presented here are more general, and statisticians who use other computing environments will also find them relevant to their work.

Android Best Practices by Godfrey Nolan shows you how to make your Android apps stand out from the crowd with great reviews. Why settle for just making any Android app? Build a brilliant Android app instead that lets your users praise it for ease of use, better performance, and more.
Using a series more » of example apps which gradually evolve throughout this book, Android Best Practices brings together current Android best practices from user interface (UI)/user experience (UX) design, test-driven development (TDD), and design patterns (e.g., MVC) to help you take your app to the next level.
In this book you’ll learn how to:
• Use Android design patterns for consistent UI experience on many devices
• Use agile techniques such as test-driven development, behavior-driven development, and continuous integration
• Improve the speed and overall performance of your app
• Organize an Android app using design patterns such as MVC/MVP
• Create and consume REST and SOAP web services
Designing and developing an app that runs well on many if not all the leading Android smartphones and tablets today can be one of the most daunting challenges for Android developers. Well, this book takes much of the mystery out of that for you.
After reading and using Android Best Practices, you'll become a much better Android app designer and developer, which in turn can make your apps better placed and more successful in the market place. « less
Over 60 recipes providing comprehensive coverage of practical real-time implemenations of Spring-WS
Spring Web Services is a product of the Spring community focused on creating document-driven Web services. Spring Web Services aims to facilitate contract-first SOAP service development, allowing for the creation of flexible web services using one of the many ways to manipulate XML payloads. This comprehensive more » guide -- which provides professional expertise on a variety of technical topics right from setting-up a contract-first Web-Service, creating client of a Web-Service to serialization, monitoring, testing and security using Spring-WS -- helps you enhance your skills in Spring Web Services. Spring Web Services 2 Cookbook includes a wide variety of recipes that covers most important topics used in real-world applications. It is a well-rounded guide covering a lot of ground in the Spring Web Services domain using systematic arranged chapters and focused recipes.
The book begins with setting up a contract first Web Service over various protocols such as JMS, XMPP, and Email. The next chapter targets creating clients for SOAP Web Services. We then learn how to test and monitor the Web Service using tools like soapUI and TCPMon. Building on, logging, tracing and exception handling are detailed in the subsequent chapter. The book then covers marshalling and unmarshalling using different technologies like JAXB2, XMLBeans, JibX, XStream, MooseXML etc. Securing WebServices through authentication, authorization, encryption and decryption and digital signature using Spring-WS features based on XWSS and WSS4J Libraries is outlined in the next chapter two chapters. The book then tackles development of RESTful Web Services. Finally, Setting up Web Services using Spring Remoting based on various technologies like HTTP , RMI, JMS, JAXWS and a Web Service using Apache CXF on JAX-WS front-end are explained. This book will help relatively new developers in accelerating their learning process and experienced developers in expanding their skills sets of Spring Web Services. « less
Fundamental Design Solutions for SOAP/WSDL and RESTful Web Services
Web services have been used for many years. In this time, developers and architects have encountered a number of recurring design challenges related to their usage, and have learned that certain service design approaches work better than others to solve certain problems.
In Service Design Patterns,Rob more » Daigneau codifies proven design solutions for web services that follow the REST architectural style or leverage the SOAP/WSDL specifications. This catalogue identifies the fundamental topics in web service design and lists the common design patterns for each topic. All patterns identify the context in which they may be used, explain the constituent design elements, and explore the relative strengths and trade-offs. Code examples are provided to help you better understand how the patterns work but are kept general so that you can see how the solutions may be applied to disparate technologies that will inevitably change in the years to come.
This book will help readers answer the following questions:
* How do you create a web service API, what are the common API styles, and when should a particular style be used?
* How can clients and web services communicate, and what are the foundations for creating complex conversations in which multiple parties exchange data over extended periods of time?
* What are the options for implementing web service logic, and when should a particular approach be used?
* How can clients become less coupled to the underlying systems used by a service?
* How can information about a web service be discovered?
* How can generic functions like authentication, validation, caching, and logging be supported on the client or service?
* What changes to a service cause clients to break?
* What are the common ways to version a service? How can web services be designed to support the continuing evolution of business logic without forcing clients to constantly upgrade?
This book is an invaluable resource for enterprise architects, solution architects, and developers who use web services to create enterprise IT applications, commercial or open source products, and Software as a Service (SaaS) products that leverage emerging Cloud platforms. « less
