The testing of a new component for an already running service-oriented system can often involve high costs, since it is hard to halt a service-oriented system with its often distributed components. Performing testing while the system is running can cause a performance decrease, pollution of the system with test data, and some service components might cost money per invocation. In this paper we propose a method for using WS-BPEL to simulate a service-oriented architecture. Any new components that require integration testing can first be tested using such a simulation. Such a simulation uses locally deployed web services, and each web service can have simulated functionality for executing test scenarios. WS-BPEL is well suited for working with web services, and it allows some simple programming constructs, and therefore is a good candidate for being the programming language to create such a simulation in. In this paper we create a simulation of a business process for a Dutch health law called WMO. By doing that, we show that it is feasible to create such a simulation, and we evaluate how well suited WS-BPEL is for the job.
