Testing Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) presents new challenges to researchers because some traditional testing techniques need to be suitably adapted due to the unique features of this new paradigm. The researchers identify some key issues that make the task of testing service-oriented systems difficult: namely, lack of observability of the source code, lack of control of the services, the cost of testing when services are not deployed in the tester's infrastructure and the invocations are charged on a per-use basis (the cost derived from an exhaustive test suite could be unmanageable) and the dynamic behavior that allows discovering and binding a service at runtime.
