Message / SOA Testing...

Recently I have started working for a testing project in the financial domain. The application we need to test uses a lot messaging architectur {SOA}. So basically a number of systems interact with each other by sending messages to each other and receiving responses in asynchronous fashion.

So automating the testing for the messaging framework is very crucial. We are using a licenced software called Green Hat for this task. In this tool we basically create publishers and subscribers to various Queues. We create XML messages and send them to Publisher Queues and verify the responses using Subscriber Queues or Database calls.

This Green Hat being licenced tool I was wondering if we can find out an open source way of doing this. And I found the following link in the very first search results.


This is basically using JMeter for the same purpose.
