Screenshot 67 – Web Services Editor
The Web Services Editor allows importing of online or local WSDL for custom editing and
execution of various web service operations, for an in depth analysis of WSDL requests and
responses. The editor also features syntax highlighting for all languages, making it easy to
edit SOAP headers and customize manual attacks. Editing and sending of Web Services
SOAP messages is very similar to editing normal requests sent via the HTTP Editor.
Importing WDSL and Sending Request

WSDL, or locate the local directory where the local WSDL file is stored. Click Import
to import all WSDL information.
2. From the drop down menus in the toolbar, select the Service, Port and Operation that
must be tested.
3. Specify a value for the operation and click Send to pass the SOAP request to the web
service. The web server response can then be viewed in a structured or XML view
type in the lower window pane.
