Whatl we're trying to achieve is emulating an admin user creating a "sub division" user and running it as 100 concurrent users to see if there's any impact on the site. When this script is running we'll then log on through the web and navigate around the site, also creating "sub users" to make sure that the web site is still usable (i.e. not running very slow).
Recording a script would not allow the soap request to go through, the xml produced was "cut short". When run as a recorded script the "sub division" user was not
Anyway I finally managed to get the web service running and now I have a State Information script with the data required which the ANTS scripts uses and passes to the web service thus emulating the web user clicking on the "Add" button. Running it like this works
The part of our web site we are testing has only recently been introduced so this will be a good test for it.
I read somewhere that the standard Record would not cope with soap requests. The functionality here is client-side which creates an XML string of SOAP and does it all with AJAX.
