This paper proposes a method for Web services test case generation, which is centered on a practical test data generation framework that has higher probability to penetrate the service implementation logic. This presented framework leverages both the information contained in the WSDL/XSD files and the information provided by testers as well as enables testers to customize the fields to be tested, field constraints and data generation rules. The proposed method can generate test cases that are effective in detecting defects and efficient in reducing test time. This paper also presents preliminary empirical evidence to illustrate the value of the method.
