Starting SoapUI and Creating the Project

  1. Start the SoapUI application according to your platform-specific instructions.

    Once you close the Start Up or Version Update dialog box, the SoapUI work area appears. The left pane provides an area to define and navigate projects and their assets. The right pane contains the selected project elements.

  2. To create a project, click File > New SOAP Project.
  3. In the New SOAP Project dialog box, type a name for the project.
  4. In the Initial WSDL field, enter
  5. Select the Create Requests: check box.

    This lets SoapUI create a prototype request document for each method.

  6. Click OK.

Two bindings appear in the left pane, named TempConvertSoap and TempConvertSoap12. Each binding has two methods, CelsiusToFahrenheit and FahrenheitToCelsius. This tutorial uses theTempConvertSoap binding.

Tip: A binding is a set of operations or functions that can be invoked. This web service presents the same set of functions available in each binding. The bindings differ in the technical details between different versions of SOAP.
