Service choreographies present numerous engineering challenges, particularly with respect to testing activities, that traditional design-time approaches cannot properly address. A proposed online testing solution offers a powerful, extensible framework to effectively assess service compositions, leading to a more trustworthy and reliable service ecosystem. The first Web extra at http://youtu.be/JseoxkY5H60 is a video of ServicePot, developed by Unicam-CNR, an extensible registry for choreography-based solutions. The second Web extra at http://youtu.be/3-3kpG3gI3c is a video demonstration of the ParTes (participant testing) tool that shows how it generates skeletons of test cases from a BPMN2 choreography specification.
