Web Service Mocking is a very useful tool in your testing arsenal. It's the solution to the question "How do I create tests for a Web Service when there is no Web Service to write test against?". Web Service Mocking will come in handy here. It allows you to create a simulation or approximation of the Web Service before the actual Web Service goes live. In this tutorial we will learn:
- Creating a MockService
- Editing a MockService
- Invoking a MockService
- Customizing a MockResponse
Creating a new Project

- The CurrencyConvertor project node should be visible in the Navigator.
We're now ready to Create the MockService
