STP Conference - Won Olympus Stylus 1050 SW

I talked yesterday at the STP Conference held at San Mateo, CA. My session was from 2.15 - 3.15 p.m. The hall was packed. The audience was very communicative and enthusiastic about knowing how to test web services. Oh yes, I spoke about testing web services using SoapUI.

Here are the details about my talk as posted on the conference web site:

805 Web Services/SOA Testing Made Easy
By Meera Subbarao
Learn how SoapUI can be used to write functional tests by creating and executing test cases against your Web services. Includes a demonstration using Groovy scripts for assertions, properties setup and tear down for each test case. Also covers use of the tests in a continuous integration environment, with the Hudson Java servlet as an example of integration and execution of the tests, breaking the build when tests fail and generating reports.
NOTE: A laptop is strongly recommended for this class.

BTW, I didn't write this blog entry to mention about my talk. I actually won an Olympus Stylus 1050 SW Digital Camera. The camera is worth $300. Just awesome. It is the first time I have ever won anything. And that too a digital camera when the one we had just broke last week. Amazing.


  1. Hello Meera,
    Congratulations on winning the camera.
    I was intrested in knowing more about the Web services testing and building the clients for my services.
    I was working on a java web application,(everthing went well and now its in production). My client wants to provide the same as web service have built a skelton of the web service gets some data from DB.
    Now my client wants to see performace testing like what the max # of records web service can retrive...test scripts...sample clients to my web service.
    Thank you,

  2. Nice post. The durability of this camera is nothing short of awesome. I love having a camera that can be dropped and get soaking wet and still work perfectly. The sliding lens cover keeps junk out of the lens area when the camera's not in use. Genius all-around design.
