Sample WSDL URLs for soapUI Web Services Testing

When I wrote the first article about how to test Web Services using soapUI,  I got an overwhelming response from the testing community encouraging me, and motivating me to write more useful soapUI tutorials. In this article, I am going to write about some working sample Web Service WSDL URLs for testing with soapUI.

Sample WSDL URLs for Testing with soapUI

After the first introductory article about soapUI, I also wrote about troubleshooting for soapUI memory issue and for the kind of response you have given via comments and emails, I am thankful to you all. Thanks for your support!

Having a sample soapUI WSDL URL is of a great help when getting used to how SOAP / REST services work.

You can easily get used to how SOAP / REST requests form and get acquainted with how the web service response looks like and how the SOA/Web Service architecture works.

Working WSDL URLs for Testing with soapUI

Here is a list of working sample WSDLs for soapUI Web Services testing.

Note: All the WSDLs on this list are working at the time of writing this article and I will keep updating it as and when I come across new working WSDL files. So, I would suggest you to bookmark this article to load the latest version of this post!

#1. Global Weather Soap: This WSDL generates 2 service operations, GetCitiesByCountry (to get a list of all the cities for any country) and GetWeather (to get weather for any city/country combination).

WSDL URL: http://www.webservicex.com/globalweather.asmx?wsdl

#2. US Weather by City Zip Codes: This WSDL generates 2 interfaces using which you can current Weather and Weather Forecast for next 7 days for any US city (using its Zip Code).

GetCityForecastByZIP – Allows you to get your City Forecast Over the Next 7 Days, which is updated hourly.

GetCityWeatherByZIP – Allows you to get your City’s Weather, which is updated hourly. U.S. Only

[U.S. Zip Codes Only – You can get US post codes from here]
WSDL URL: http://wsf.cdyne.com/WeatherWS/Weather.asmx?WSDL

#3. Bank BLZ Service (Bank Sort Codes): This WSDL generates request and response for a web service using which you can fetch Bank Sort Codes (called Bank BLZ codes) for banks in Germany.

In the request, you need to pass the BLZ code for any bank in Germany and it comes back with the bank details. You can get plenty of Bank BLZ codes at blzcodes.com.

WSDL URL: http://www.thomas-bayer.com/axis2/services/BLZService?wsdl

I hope you like this list of sample soapUI WSDL files.

Happy Testing!

P.S. – All the WSDLs on this list have been tested before posting here. I will be updating this list on a regular basis, so you can bookmark this URL for future references.

    Hi All,

    I’ve used one of these WSDLs in the past, but it seems they may have been decommissioned. Can anyone confirm this?

    Thanks,
    Jarrod

      Thanks

    Thanks,

      Hi Subha, I will have to validate these URLs again and will update the list if required. Please bear with me till then. You could use the others on the list for now if that works for you 🙂

    Hi Amandeep,

    I am trying to connect to below WSDL from my local machine with SOAP UI

    http://www.webservicex.com/globalweather.asmx?wsdl

    But I am getting the error message as : credentials are missing.

    Could you please let me know the credentials, so that I could connect to the above WSDL please?

    If you are getting this type of error “Error loading [http://www.webservicex.com/globalweather.asmx?wsdl]: java.lang.Exception: Failed to load url;”……..then try the following

    (1)
    In SoapUI, File –> Preferences –> Proxy Settings –> None

    (2)
    If your computer is using VPN, then disable VPN.

    In my case, I had to do both for the error to go away.

    Hi,

    What are the sample request params to be passed inorder to receive a response for http://www.webservicex.com/globalweather.asmx?wsdl

    getweather service?

    I gave India / IND for country param. but getting Data Not Found Response

    • Amandeep Singh December 10, 2015 at 5:28 PM - Reply

      Hi Suma – there are some combinations which are not working – maybe some issue with the data currently.

      But I did try these combination which continue to work for GetWeather operation: Delhi/India, Vancouver/Canada and Barcelona/Spain.

      I hope this helps.
