Testing service operations
You can use Flash Builder to test service operations and
view data returned from an operation. This feature is useful to
verify the behavior of services.
Important: Some operations, such as update and
delete, modify data on the server.
Test a service operation
This procedure assumes you connected to a data service.
In the Data/Service view, select an operation in a service.
From the context menus, select Test Operation.
The Test Operation
view opens, displaying the selected operation. If the operation
requires input parameters, the Test Operation view lists the parameters.
For any required input parameters, click the Enter Value
field and specify a value for the parameter.
If the parameter
requires a complex type, click the Ellipsis button in the field
to open an Input Argument Editor. Specify the value in editor.
Input Argument Editor accepts JSON notation for representing complex types
If authentication is needed from the server, select Authentication
Required. Click Test.
Provide authentication credentials as
needed. See Authenticating access to services.
Flash Builder displays the data
