Abstract: Web services represent class of applications developed through open internet standards. They help to develop dynamic applications and thus are used to deliver business components or functionalities on the web. Business functionalities as per changing market scenarios are frequently changing and so are these web services. It is therefore the need to properly ensure quality of these web services as they are essential to deliver functions which are required for organizations in their strategic business. To maintain desired level of quality, software maintainability of such applications is important. Regression Testing is required for proper maintaining any software and it becomes very costly in terms of cost and labor for constantly changing applications. Thus to reduce maintenance cost we need to reduce effort required in such testing. This paper presents an efficient regression testing strategy which is also automated to reduce the regression costs of web services. The strategy is implemented through an extensive framework supported by automation and also integrates data testing with regression. The proposed work is particularly useful for those applications which are delivered over web.
