Web Services (WS) provide a new paradigm for developing Internet-based applications using standard technologies and protocols. This proposal studies the web transactions characteristics in Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) from a testing point of view. The authors' idea is to define adequacy criteria to test web transactions. This will be accomplished using risk analysis techniques in order to take into account the possible failures of the transactions. An adaptation of risk-based methodologies (like HAZOP or FMEA) will be applied to define adequacy criteria and the corresponding tests.
