Using SOAPSonar to Provision Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud

Soapsonar_ec2_crosscheck

Mamoon Yunus, author of the SOA Testing Blog and advisor to Crosscheck Networks sent me a link to an interesting and relevant How-To document.

Using SOAPSonar to Provision Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud covers downloading and installation of a free trial version of Crosscheck’s SOAPSonar product and then shows the steps needed to load the X.509 certificate, set up SOAP authentication, and finally to call the Amazon EC2 SOAP APIs.

The document is very clear and explicit and definitely simplifies and makes obvious some steps that have proven to be difficult for some developers to master.

There’s also information about how to load the EC2 and Amazon S3 WSDLs into SOAPSonar simultaneously and to use them to as the basis for a mashup.
