This week's book giveaway is in the Testing forum. We're giving away four copies of The Way of the Web Tester: A Beginner's Guide to Automating Tests and have Jonathan Rasmusson on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi all, I am currently calling a 3rd party web service and I need to ping the service frequently to see whether it is up or not. I don't know how to implement it, pls. give me some ideas, if anyone has done something similar or is there any open source I can use to do it?
