SOAP Message Builder
The tool is for those who really know  SOAP. It allows you to craft your own  SOAP messages and send directly  to the target service. 
  1. Enter the server address (endpoint) for the web service. 
  2. Enter SOAPAction string if any.
  3. Type in your complete SOAP message.
Server Address:
SOAP Message::
Proxy: (optional)

Why the Message Builder? 

This is a tool for testing web services. A good web service needs to be interoperable with many SOAP clients, which may send different, yet valid, messages for the same service. The tool can be used to simulate such situations. You can change schemas, namespaces, and variable values to test if your service is really SOAP 1.1 compliant. 

Using the Message Builder:

The most difficult part of using the tool is to create a valid message:

1. If you know the message already and have a copy of it, just cut-n-copy to the text box above.
2. If you know the WSDL file, you may be able to generate a complete message using our Generic SOAP Client with a proxy (Use Simon Fell's proxyTrace if you haven't got one). proxyTrace should capture the complete request message when executing a method..
3. If you know the WSDL file, we can generate a skeleton where you have to put in variable values. Enter the WSDL file below and click the Generate button, an automatically generated request message will be put into the SOAP message box above. All variable values are in the form of {$var_name}, where var_name is the name of the variable. You must replace them manually before execution.

Select the Validate checkbox will send the message to Microsoft Message Validator for verification.
