HTTP Test Client



When developing a RESTful Web service in ASP.Net MVC I was looking for a HTTP Test client that I can be used to test the RESTful API that I had created. It is easy to test HTTP GET with a browser. What I was looking for in the tool was the ability to HTTP POST/PUT/DELETE to any Url. Thanks to Stackoverflow where chris recommended a fantastic freeware tool called Fiddler

Definition from Fiddler’s website: Fiddler is a Web Debugging Proxy which logs all HTTP(S) traffic between your computer and the Internet. Fiddler allows you to inspect all HTTP(S) traffic, set breakpoints, and “fiddle” with incoming or outgoing data. Fiddler includes a powerful event-based scripting subsystem, and can be extended using any .NET language.

Thanks.
