The SOAPscope Server is a platform for development which provides a specifically designed work environment that is centralized designed for SOAs. The Development teams join together in specialized workspaces that are virtual which manage the Web Services definitions, notes, simulations, recorded actions and messages.


The Mindreef SOAPscope Server is mainly relied on the workspaces concept. As already stated, the workspaces are central depositories that have the assets of a Web Services-enabled project. There are three major types of workspaces:
1.    Private – All the assets in the private workspaces are made accessible only to the user who is logged-in
2.    Team – Assets in the team workspaces are made accessible to any user who is logged-in.
3.    Community – The community workspace assets are made available to any user in the read-only state

As an instance, let us suppose that an enterprise has some unique physical locations for master data services (product, customer etc.), contract management and sales. The developers and the support teams of these services are located in various physical locations. As a part of the effort to improve the ties with the trading partners, the company is in the process of building an application so that the buyers can submit the purchase orders and price checks using the Web Services.
While establishing a workspace in the Mindreef SOAPscope Server, developers add some WSDL definitions called as the service contracts. A service contract can be attached to a workspace via either a URL or WSDL file located on the file system. Service contracts can even be added from the other private waorkspaces of the developer, and from all community and team workspaces. To this example, the CSalesService and ContractService WSDL files will be added.

After loading the service contracts, the SOAPscope Server offers them to the developers in various views:
•    The Overview – It displays all the details of a certain service contract in the tree structure. Every operation is a node that can be expandable on a tree in which the details of the operations are preserved including output and input message constructs and actions.
•    The Documentation – it lists all the Web Service components by the namespace.
•    Files – It displays XML files that make up the definition of the Web Service.
•    The coverage – It is a general list of the usage statistics for the given service. The Metrics caught here involves response size, request size, call duration, faults and total calls.

From these perspectives, the services can be updated, analyzed or invoked and various services can be equated at a time to identify the differences in their explanations. The developer even can analyze the services for the finest practices. Choices of the algorithms that are to run are the WS-I Basic Profile 1.0, Mindreef Basic Diagnostics and the combination of the SOAP Binding Profile 1.0 and the WS-I Basic Profile 1.0. The users have the chance of inventing the algorithms of their own from a test library.
