Performance testing in an SOA application is done a bit differently compared to any other architecture. We don't just need to validate performance requirements of single service components but also test the orchestration, as well as the third-party services.
We can categorize performance testing in the following way:
Let's go through them in detail.
Here we test if the response time of the service is within acceptable limits and we also analyze the behavior of the service under different types of performance tests.
We can perform this type of testing easily using SoapUI. We will see this in the coming sections.
