    Hi Alan,

    Welcome to ASPNET newsgroup.
    As for the stress testing ASP.NET webservice question you mentioned,
    generally we have serveral means to stress test it and ACT is really one of
    the available options. Here is a MS kb article mentioned on this:

    #HOW TO: Test ASP.NET Web Services with the Web Application Stress Tool
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=815160

    The KB article mentioned using ACT or WAS to stress testing the asp.net
    webservice through the default test web page. And the default test page is
    send HTTP get message (not SOAP message).

    However, since webservice is a no page based service, which just reply the
    HTTP protocol to transfer SOAP message, for real world scenario, our
    clientside won't use browser and HTTp get message to call web service , but
    use proxy class and SOAP message, it won't reflect real world result.
    Also, as we known, ACT is mainly target web page(UI based) stress testing.

    So if you want real world targeted stress test on webservice, I'd suggest
    you manually create some simply uility class together with the .NET
    generated client proxy to test the web service. Stress on the default
    asp.net webservice test page can only somewhat reflect the webserver's
    strength ,but not exact the real word result.

    Thanks,
