Road to Jmeter test of wsdl web services.

In this post, I am going to explain how to create jmeter test for wsdl api testing to perform load testing. Before creating test you need following set up in your machine.

Set Up:
  1. Download and setup java path in your system environment path. 
  2. Download and install Jmeter.
  3. Download and install soapUI.
Here I am using wsdl url “”.

Steps to create test:
  1. Launch your Jmeter.
  2. Right click on test plan add new thread group by choosing option:  Add>>Threads (user)>>Thread Group.
  3. Right click on “Thread Group“ add new sampler by choosing option:  Add>>Sampler>> SOAP/XML-RPC Request
      4. Now open soap UI and create new soapui project using wsdl url as I used in below

   5.  After soap ui project created successfully. Copy soap request data as I copy below soap request.
