Mock REST APIs and SOAP web-services
Castle Mock is a web application that provides the functionality to mock out RESTful APIs and SOAP web-services. This functionality allows client-side developers to completely mimic a server side behavior and shape the responses themselves.
Castle Mock can create mocked services based on WSDL, WADL, Swagger and RAML definition files. The web-services defined within the files will be mocked automatically by Castle Mock. Once the mocks for the web-services are created, they can be configured to mock the service or forward the request to the original endpoint. The response from the forwarded requests can be recorded automatically and used to create new mocked responses.
Castle Mock is completely free and open source (Apache License 2.0). It is built with Java and the application itself is deployed to an Apache Tomcat server.
Castle Mock can be downloaded as Java Web Archive (.war) file and be deployed on a Apache Tomcat server (Apache Tomcat 8.0 or higher). No additional configurations are required in order to get Castle Mock up and running.
Get started with Castle Mock
Use Castle Mock
Castle Mock can be accessed from the web browser when the installation is complete as such:
This will prompt you the login screen. When logging for the first time use the following credentials:
Username: admin Password: admin
It is recommended that the administrator profile gets updated with a more secure password. This is accomplish by going to the user page and choosing to update the profile.
Upon successful login, you will be able to create both SOAP and REST projects. SOAP and REST resources can either be created manually or created by importing resource descriptions, such as WSDL and WADL. All created resources can be mocked multiple times. Each resource can also be configured to have different response strategies, such as random and sequence
