Hi Tukutan,
                My gut feel is that webtest is good for testing typical
point and click web applications (e.g. facebook, google). For testing
web services, I would recommend creating soap messages and sending them
and asserting the replies in an 'integration' test.
                Someone else may have some input on if/how you would use
webtest for web service testing.
Best,
Conor

Subject: [Webtest] testing JSON web services


Hi,

I am currently about to do a new project to test JSON based web
services. I was told to research a testing tool that can be used to test
this web services. Since, I have been using webtest, I would really like
to use the same tool to test this.

Is it possible to use webtest for this purpose? I am completely new to
test JSON web services and thus I don't know much about the requirement
to test JSON web services.

Thanks,
