Exercise 8c: Edit the Web Application service methods

In Exercise 8b: Import a Web Application service model, you imported the Web application service description and methods into UFT to create a hierarchy of services, resources, and methods.

The WADL that you import contains a detailed description of the service's resources and methods, including the URL of the service and its methods, and parameters for various methods. Once you import the WADL file into UFT, you cannot change these properties.

However, you can add additional information to your service description, such as additional parameters for the methods, and request and response information for the methods. This additional information is also saved as part of the service model and is used as the prototype information when you drag a method to the canvas.

In this lesson, you will learn how to edit the service model's properties in UFT. You will be adding information to the GetFlights method and ReserveOrder methods, which you will use in the next exercise to create a test.

Now that you have edited your Web Application methods to included additional information, you are ready to use them in a test. Continue to Exercise 8d: Build a test with Web Application service methods to build a test using the methods imported from your WADL.
