how to test web services

How to test web services? the only answer i know at the moment - use SoapUI. An open-source GUI for easily creating and firing off SOAP requests.

You need:
to feed the WSDL - entering the url,
the program creates sample SOAP requests for you;you edit those in a simple XML editor;send it to see the response.(For today, have not got the proper response. The database needs to be changed. Will see the results later)
