Abstract: This paper details our research into creating a method and tools to perform dependability analysis of Web Services. Our method is based upon a modified version of Network Level Fault Injection and extends this technique by automatically decoding network messages, based on SOAP, and thus allowing meaningful faults to be injected. This paper also outlines our method for automating the generation of test scripts from our fault model. Our method and tools can be applied to a system to assess a wide range of Quality of Service metrics and in this paper we present a test case to show how this can be applied to a Quality of Service scenario.
