Seeking Assistance with Mocking SOAP API in webMethods API Gateway

Hi Folks,

I’m reaching out to seek some guidance and assistance regarding Mocking. I’m currently working on implementing mocking for a SOAP API within the webMethods API Gateway. If anyone here has experience with webMethods API Gateway and knows the ins and outs of setting up mocking for a SOAP API, I would greatly appreciate your insights.

Looking forward to hearing from you amazing people!

So that you don’t feel completely ignored, I’ll give you my opinion though it won’t be very helpful. Many people find mocking useful and productive. I am not one of those people. :slight_smile: Thus my suggestion is to not do it. I prefer connecting to the real thing, not a mock. Pros and cons to both approaches but IME the challenges related to mocking are not overcome by the relatively limited benefits. This is definitely a YMMV item.


but I need mocking for some testing purposes

Connecting to the real thing, which should be a dev/test instance, would serve that purpose more reliably, no?

Is there a specific reason why connecting to the real endpoint is not possible/reasonable? I’m not necessarily asking you to justify using a mock – there are cases where can be useful. I’m really just asking that you explore the perceived “need” to make sure the benefit outweighs the relative cost.
