Executive Summary

Web services facilitate integration and interoperability of distributed heterogeneous application and components. It is a standard representation for information resource that can be used by other programs, regardless of the development platform, middleware, operating system and the hardware. During execution of a web service, there is a need to monitor its internal behavior to check for its availability and correctness, and to detect performance bottlenecks. This paper presents a Probe-based Observability Mechanism required for the monitoring of the web services. The mechanism facilitates observation of internal execution details of the web services during testing and execution. The mechanism defines the structure of log which is required to be inserted into the web service.
